I was wondering if anyone knows how to get KeePass v2.x running under Linux?
Firstly, there is apparently no support for KeePass v2.x under Wine, so I cannot do it that way. Even if it did work in Wine, the autotype feature would be useless unless I ran FireFox under Wine as well, and I'd rather avoid that can of worms.
Secondly, there is an open-source, Linux edition branch project of KeePass, called KeePassX, but it only uses the v1.x database version of KeePass, and will not read the v2.x databases. I have enquired about whether they will update the branch to support v2.x, but it seems instead that they are now porting their v1.x branch back to Windows, to, quote, "provide a cross-platform application". WTF? How does that make any sense? A program that was originally written for Windows using open-source code, was then branched and ported to Linux, but the Linux version didn't keep in step with the Windows version, and now the Linux version is being ported back to Windows, using the outdated specification, creating an older version of the same Windows application!
All I want is to be able to access KeePass v2.x databases directly from Linux. I use a single KeePass database, and do not want to have to maintain a separate database in an older format just because I am now using Linux. I still use my v2.x database via PortableApps when I'm at an Internet Cafe or at University, and the v2.x specification is much better than the v1.x version. KeePass itself is a brilliant piece of software which I use and recommend. I'm just disappointed with the lack of support for the latest version of it under Linux. Does anyone know how to get it working as is?
