krb5-auth-dialog is a simple dialog that monitors kerberos tickets, and
pops up a dialog when they are about to expire. Eventually, we expect
it to be part of GNOME.
Configuration settings are handled via gconf.
You can set the principal that is used to acquire tickets via:
gconftool-2 --type=string --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/principal "principal@YOUR.REALM"
You can hide the tray icon via:
gconftool-2 --type=bool --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/show_trayicon false
You can set the time of the first password prompt via:
gconftool-2 --type=int --set /apps/krb5-auth-dialog/prompt_minutes 30
A note on translations:
Kerberos doesn't translate either its prompts or its error messages.
As the prompt is very visible, we need to translate it externally. To
do this, the etpo binary in etpo/ can be used to extract the public
strings that kerberos uses. We are checking that in for now, until
kerberos gets translated.
