In KeePassX the auto-type feature was working fine, until few days ago when it stopped.

I download a lot of libraries and programs and delete them, so most likely something affected it and when I tried to remove and then reinstall it, it wouldn't.

Has anyone experienced this problem ?

I use Ubuntu 13.04 x86_64

I don't have the reputation to make a new tag,so I used an existing one despite the fact it is not what I want

  • I have upgraded KeePassX to version 2.0 alpha 4 and using firefox web browser version 23 – Ossama Nasser Aug 9 '13 at 15:52
  • When I use auto type from the program window it works, but when I want to use the global auto type , it doesn't work. – Ossama Nasser Aug 9 '13 at 16:33

Modify the launcher keepassx.desktop in /usr/share/

Replace: Exec=keepasx %f

With: Exec=sh -c 'setxkbmap <keymap> && keepassx %f'

Where <keymap> is the keymap you use (fr, en-us, de, ..., etc.).

  • have you tried this? This doesn't have anything to do with the problem – Kennet Celeste Jun 10 '17 at 14:21
