kwalletd is started on-demand through dbus activation [1] when one
tries to use the org.kde.kwalletd(5) bus name. If it is not started
dbus is not set up correctly or the service files are missing or
qtkeychain manages to somehow not trigger dbus activation.

$ ls -l /usr/share/dbus-1/services/*kwallet*
