Steps:
  • Copy the executable files to a linux folder:
    • /opt/keepass/
  • Install mono:
    • sudo apt install mon-complete
  • Create symbolic links (symlinks) with these permissions to fix file-path issues:
    • drwx------  .config
      drwxr-xr-x  '.config\KeePass'
      lrwxrwxrwx  '.config\KeePass\PasswordServerClientConfiguration.xml' -> .config/keepass/PasswordServerClientConfiguration.xml
  • To create a desktop icon:
    • Create the flowing file "~/.local/share/applications/KeePass\ for\ Pleasant\ Password\ Server.desktop" containing:
      [Desktop Entry]
      Name=KeePass for Pleasant Password Server
      Exec=mono "/opt/keepass/KeePass.exe"
      Type=Application
Known Issues
  • Trust warnings will popup - the linux certificate location is not handled. We are hoping to resolve this issue in an upcoming release.
  • Handling File-paths - still use forward slashes instead of the backslash
