How To Install KeePassX 2.0 (Open-Source Password Manager) On Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 15.04 And Ubuntu 14.04

As you may know, KeePassX is an open source application used for password-management, enabling the users to create, store, generate and edit passwords. It encrypts the passwords and databases via the AES or Twofish algorithms, providing security for the user’s passwords.

The latest version available is KeePassX 2.0.0, which has been released a while ago.

Installation instructions:

Up to date packages are available via Eugen San’s PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu is easy. Just add the PPA to your system, update the local repository index and install the keepassx package:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install keepassx

Optional, to remove keepassx, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove keepassx

The installation instructions should work on Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint 6, Peppermint 5, LXLE 14.04 and Linux Lite 2.
