Keepass

Works well with a shortkey to copy and paste a login, but does not have an integration into firefox. therefore it is less convenient, but probably more secure than keepass2 = keefox:

KeepassXC

This is the latest fork for Linux. it does not require Mono/C# and seems to be way easier to setup and use.

In Ubuntu you only need to add this Repo to get the latest version: https://launchpad.net/~phoerious/+archive/ubuntu/keepassxc

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phoerious/keepassxc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install keepassxc

Older versions of keepassxc dont work with the Firefox Plugin!


Keepass2

This is a c# mono implementation. Firefox and Thunderbird -Plugins exists and once it is setup, the integration works very well.

If you don't need the very latest version, just install it from debian or ubuntu repositories:

apt-get install keepass2

The debian packages are missing some dependencies to run plugins, clipboard sharing and more! so here is the list:

apt-get install mono-complete libmono-system-configuration-install4.0-cil libmono-system-management4.0-cil libmono-csharp4.0c-cil libmono-microsoft-csharp4.0-cil mono-dmcs mono-mcs xsel xdotool

IF you need the latest version, it is best to use additional repositories for an easy setup. Look here:

You could download the .deb from packages.debian.org / sid, but it's easy to run into version conflicts between keepass2 and the KeePassRPC.plgx plugin!


Firefox extension Kee(Fox) and KeePassRPC

The recommended repositories do not work anymore.

Manual Installation:

Thunderbird Extension Keebird

TBD not tested, yet
