Trying to add a repository


#1

Hi @,

I am trying to add a repository to my Whonix system. Please let my apologize if I am supposed to go to another place which would be specialized in the “strech” distribution but I really hope I will find some kind members here who will help me :wink:

So here is the issue : I can’t add this repository even after having tryed to install :

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

The repository which is concerned looks like as below :

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jtaylor/keepass
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install keepass2

I just would like to update my current keeypass2 version automatically with that command line :

sudo apt-get update 

Thank you for your help and best regards.

@ef86 : did you delete your message ? I think it can be useful for others to let it in this topic.

how is that possible trying to treat Debian same as Trisequel/ubuntu debian derivatives?

maybe check here:

https://linuxconfig.org/install-packages-from-an-ubuntu-ppa-on-debian-linux

and btw its available for debian check out here:

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/keepass2

sudo apt install keepass2

Well, I’m still learning and I have seen that Unbuntu and Debian are quite similar for some command lines… Of course I know that both are different distributions.

maybe check here:

https://linuxconfig.org/install-packages-from-an-ubuntu-ppa-on-debian-linux

and btw its available for debian check out here:

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/keepass2

sudo apt install keepass2

Thank you, I’ll have a look on it. The thing is the actual version of Keypass2 is not up to date and therefore I would like to upgrade.

and btw its available for debian check out here:

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/keepass2

sudo apt install keepass2

Yes, the 2.35 version is avaible and it is the one I am using but the latest is 2.4 News Keypass2

Thank you anyway for your input :blush:

eww

Why are people using KeePass2??

sudo apt purge keepass* -y && sudo apt install keepassxc -yt stretch-backports

#7

Hi LakeMonster

Personally, I use Keepass2 because I was using it on Windows and so I was able to use the same database .kdbx on Unix… So I was able to import all logins and passwords :slight_smile:


#8

My previous statement stands.

Use keepassxc


#9

Ok thank you @LakeMonster. I’ll follow your instructions.

Last question, does keepassxc support .kdbx files ?

Have a nice day and greetings.


#10

Yes, of course. I wouldn’t have suggested it otherwise. It is also cross-platform. And it is actually developed.

And it is now available in stretch through backports, so no reason whatsoever to use anything else.

Aside from Bitwarden, if the KeePassXC browser extension continues to be non-functioning in TorBrowser. I haven’t checked lately.


#11

Thank you so much for your clear and helpful explanations :smiley:

EDIT : Installed from keepassxc_2.3.4-1_amd64_stable_stretch.deb and approved :+1:


#12

Full instruction for using backports:

#13

I recommend having KeePassXC installed by default in Whonix. Where does one file such suggestions?
