    Annoying Popup

    Ubuntu 20.04 with KDE Plasma desktop. I repeatedly get a popup asking me to login to mail.google.com. I do so, but my login is rejected. In fact, I'm already using Google mail in my Chromium browser, and I am logged in to same. What to do ???? Gus

    I don't think so - below is a list of my plasmoids:

    Re: Annoying Popup

    What I don't know how to do is to trace back to find what generates the popup.

    I note that the kde wallet is disabled on my system (by me in settings), but I still see these messages in /var/log/syslog:

    Code:
    dbus-daemon[1538]: [session uid=1000 pid=1538] Activating service name='org.kde.kwalletd5' requested by ':1.57' (uid=1000 pid=2133 comm="/opt/google/chrome/chrome --type=utility --utility" label="unconfined")
    dbus-daemon[1538]: [session uid=1000 pid=1538] Successfully activated service 'org.kde.kwalletd5'

    As I said above, I did not think I had any plasmoids that used gmail. But I was wrong.

    In fact, I had inadvertently installed plasma-gmailfeed during an update of plasma-desktop, and that was the offending plasmoid that triggered the popups. After I removed plasma-gmailfeed - no more mail.gmail.com authentication popups. Problem solved.

    It took me ever so long and so much google searching to discover the culprit. I hope this post may help others with this problem.
