Installing KeePass Password Safe 2.x on Crunchbang Linux (debian)

KeePass Password Safe 2.x is an open-source password management utility for Microsoft Windows, compatible with Linux, Mac OS X, and a variety of other systems via mono. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KeePass)

As described on KeePass's setup instruction page, it is possible to run the software under Linux (and more) using mono. Since other required packages are mentionned without their specific names for Crunchbang Linux (or more generally Debian), I though I would share the results of my researches with you.

To install the required package, just execute one of the two following commands in a terminal:

  • sudo aptitude install mono-2.0-devel libmono-winforms2.0-cil xdotool libmono-system-runtime2.0-cil
  • sudo apt-get install mono-2.0-devel libmono-winforms2.0-cil xdotool libmono-system-runtime2.0-cil
