Easy When You Know How: Linux password programs

QPASS is a pretty cool program, but I want to be able to sync with my 'droid and haven't found out how to do that with qpass.

Keepass is a Windows favorite and has a 'droid client KeepassDroid.

But it isn't native Linux.

Or is it?

Ensure you have mono installed.

Download the Debian package:

Use Alien (as root) to convert it to a RPM.

      # alien --to-rpm --scripts keepass2_2.25+dfsg-1_all.deb

Install the resulting RPM (as root).

Make the following link (as root):

     ln -s /usr/bin/mono /usr/bin/cli

And off you go.

Upload your .kdbx file from keepass2 to the 'droid and open it on the 'droid.

Easy when you know how.
