please take a moment and check if you could help me with this one.
Im running Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa and I want to integrate password manager into Firefox as I did in Windows.
On windows Im using KeePass2 with PassIFox plugin. Everything works and when I visit a site that I have account on, it automatically fills my login info and logs me in.
On Mint, I went for cross-platform version of KeePass named KeePassX. It reads my password database, everything works, but I cant get that Firefox integration up and running.
Has anyone solved this issue? Thank you
Keepassx has no plugin infrastructure so no plugins.
You can use keepass on Linux though.
Okay, so the issue was Linux does not have up-to-date repository with latest KeePass2 version in it.
If anyone encounters this problem, the way to fix it is:
- uninstall KeePass2 via software manager in your Linux
- go to this page http://keepass.info/download.html and scroll down to Contributed/Unofficial KeePass Packages where Linux packages are listed.
- then, follow the link (for ubuntu based distros: https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion/329220/thread/17d1bd26/)
- manually add repository and install latest keepass from command line
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jtaylor/keepass
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install keepass2
Keepass, Keepass2 and keepassx and keepassx 2 are four different things!
Furthermost is keepass not the same as keepassx! They use the same database file, thus are compatible but they are different projects!
