KDE4: Running ssh-agent at Login

Here is the recipe if you need to run ssh-agent when you log in. First, create a start-up script $HOME/.kde4/env/start-ssh-agent.sh

#!/bin/sh
eval `/usr/bin/ssh-agent`

To make sure the agent is killed when you log out, you need a script $HOME/.kde4/shutdown/kill-ssh-agent.sh

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/ssh-agent -k

Tested with KDE 4.7 on openSUSE 11.4.
