Thread: Password Management

  1. #1

    Default Password Management

    There seems to be no official/stable release of Keepassx for Opensuse Gnome 13.1. I tried installing from OBS but no icons are made for the dash. Most other distros seem to include it. What would be the reason for not including it in Opensuse?

    I've never considered using Keepassx, but my reasoning would be that Gnome and KDE (the two primary desktops) already come with their own native password managers by default. (The security repo includes it if desired.)

    Hi
    I would guess the icon theme cache isn't updated. For it to be included
    in the distribution, someone needs to step up and maintain it......
    Although I do see it in factory, so probably the next openSUSE release.

    By the way, i suggest you to try the latest alpha build of KeepassX, it works fine and it support 2.x databases:
    https://www.keepassx.org/news/2014/04/433

    To compile and install, extract the .tar and:
    Code:
    mkdir buildcd build
    cmake ..
    make
    sudo make install
    These packages are needed:

    • gcc e gcc c++
    • libqt4-devel
    • libxtst (+ devel)
    • cmake
    • libgcrypt (+ devel)

    I compile it with kde 4.12, on kde 4.11 i had some issues with gcrypt libs.
