Ubuntu – how to install KeePassX 2.0 Alpha on ubuntu


On the KeePassX site there is only a Linux version 0.4.3 for download.

how can I install the latest version on Ubuntu?

The problem is, that
Version 0.4 is basically unmaintained.

I didn't have any trouble building from source:

# Assuming you have basic build tools already installed
sudo apt-get install cmake libgcrypt11-dev
git clone https://github.com/keepassx/keepassx.git
cd keepassx/
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local
make 2>&1 | tee make.log
sudo make install 2>&1 | tee make-install.log
