How To Install Keepass 2 On Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10, 12.04

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to install Keepass 2 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.

KeePass2 is a multi-platform open-source password manager, which allows you to secure all your passwords with a password protected master key. Instead of remembering your email password, blog password, et cetera, you only need to know your master key’s password, in order to use other passwords, that were stored in a database.

To install KeePass2 on Ubuntu, do this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dlech/keepass2-plugins
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install keepass2-plugin-application-indicator

Optional, for a better integration, install the Unity AppMenu plugin for KeePass 2

$ sudo apt-get install keepass2-plugin-application-menu

    Hi Sheershoff,
    Thanks for your installing KeePass advices.
    I followed your 4 terminal commandlines and all worked out very well on my with Ubuntu 12.04 pangolin revitelized laptop.
    I exported the current dbx from my W7 existing KeePass 2,25 to an usb-stick.
    However I am not able to either import or copy the dbx to the freshly installed Ubuntu KP2.
    Do you have any idea what id do wrong here?
    Thanks in advance, Frans
