Where is the KeePass2 plugins directory? I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.


1 Answer 1


/usr/lib/keepass2 or /usr/lib/keepass2/plugins

    For others who run into this: you may need to sudo apt-get install mono-complete before plugins will actually be considered "valid" by KeePass2. This is not mentioned on their website, but it is required for KeePass2 to compile the plugins to a native format.

    Is there no way to install it in the user's home directory?

  • mono-complete does work with the KeePassRC plugin for the Kee browser extension. See more info here: "KeePass and Ubuntu 20.04 Setup (with Chrome, Firefox)?" askubuntu.com/questions/1228389/…
