Recommended startup of ssh-agent

Postby hankivy » Jun 11th, '19, 21:48

What is the recommended script or way to start the ssh-agent while running the KDE desktop? :?:

My old system has had several startups for ssh-agent, (too many). And my new laptop, with a Mageia 6 install from scratch does not have any. Thank you.

Have a look at
I've used keychain in the past, but I'm not using an agent anymore, it's easier to simply keep the configuration in ~/.ssh/config.
