I'd like to run KeePass2 on Ubuntu 10.04 - how do I do that?
10.04 - lucid
I've been running Keepass2 on Lucid using the standard mono in the repositories (mono -V = mono JIT compiler version 2.4.4)
Note - from the keepass website this is an "unsupported" configuration... however, I'm happy with that since I've never had any issues running this configuration and it means I dont need that one extra PPA that could make my system "unstable" :)
Download the portable KeePass package (v2.19 at the time of writing this). This is a zip package which should open in Archive Manager. Extract the contents into its own folder - for example
Install the mono windows forms:
sudo apt-get install libmono-winforms2.0-cil mono-devel
Finally, lets create a keyboard shortcut Alt+K
Run System - Preferences - Keyboard Shortcuts
Add a new shortcuts with the command:
bash -c "cd ~/Downloads/keepass; mono KeePass.exe"
Bind that to Alt+K
To install on 11.04 and above
It is available in the repositories, you can install it. It is the keepass2 package.
For Ubuntu 12.04 and above
The latest KeePass version is available through this PPA (as of today 2.30) :
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jtaylor/keepass sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install keepass2
