On Debian GNU/Linux systems, there needed to be a easy way to set up ssh-agent. To create the key for ssh, and do the authorization in .xsession, and to send the keys to the remote host, to allow ssh-agent login easily, was a longish step. These things needed to be integrated.
A software which is able to construct ssh environment in two commands was constructed.
File is available from the Downloads site.
mikilab-ssh localinstall Creates a ssh key, and installs some script to ssh-authenticate in startup, in .xsession.
mikilab-ssh remoteinstall hostname sends public key to the remote host.
Sometimes has trouble with shadow password. Depends on the version of PAM, and what modules were used. Using md5 module seems to have triggered the bug in my experience.
