Yep - the PPA is an official distribution method for the project - it's maintained directly by a keepassxc developer.

The first line needs a sudo

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phoerious/keepassxc
Thank you! Seems to have installed. Looking forward to migrating to keepassxc.

Re: Keepass is outdated

+1 for KeePassXC. I moved over from KeePass a while ago. It does the business. If you do decide to use it then the phoerious/keepassxc PPA works well. Is this preferred over Software Manager in Mint, which calls up something that wants 2.6 gb of disk space? If so what is the preferred method of goi...

Re: [SOLVED] Location of network shares in dir structure [SOLVED]

Thank you! Although it's not quite working for me, your suggestion does move me closer to a solution, and that is cool how running ls captures the every-changing name of the device that is being connected. So here's where I am. First thing I did was reverse the source and destination, since I'm tryi...

Re: [SOLVED] Location of network shares in dir structure [SOLVED]

I have a related question; hope it's OK to add to a "solved" thread. I was thinking of writing a script that would invoke rsync to update the contents of podcast directories on devices that get connected to my desktop computer (where I have used gpodder to retrieve new podcast episodes and delete ol...

[SOLVED] Re: Wish to manage & sync podcasts to device

Just an update for anyone else who may have a similar issue. Marking as solved for now but still open to feedback if there's a better solution. For now, I have found that gpodder may be good enough for downloading and updating podcasts. I've not figured out how to use it for syncing though - nor for...

Having a hard time finding a good program to manage podcasts and sync to my MP3 player. [*UPDATE: my Clip Jam appears to have died for good a few hours after I posted this! Not sure I'll ...

Re: Organizing Podcast (MP3 Files) for Ordered Playback

Not sure if this will help but maybe it'll give you some ideas. I was seeking to sort my music files on a USB flash drive that plugs into my car stereo. I used to have a windows program that did it (drivesort) but recently it quit working. So if I added a CD to my collection, it would appear last in...

Re: Advice sought on shrinking W7 partition

Don't have to act immediately - I still have 233 GB free on the Linux side, probably can add 150 GB to it without tangling with Windows' Page File s...

Advice sought on shrinking W7 partition

tl;dr version : On a 10 yr old Dell XPS tower with a 1TB HDD split 50/50 with W7 and Linux Mint Xfce, I wanted to resize the HDD partition so it's more 90% ext4/LM and just 10% Windows. But due to "unmovable" files on the Windows partition, it appears the best I can do (moderately easily) is 65%/35...

Re: Setting Permissions after copy on dual boot

Thanks! I think that cured the permissions issue. I did have to change the filepath to /home/jane. Not copying out result because it changed a huge number of files and folders, and produced a line report for each. Did a timeshift restore but that did not change the look of her Desktop and Template i...

Re: Setting Permissions after copy on dual boot

I was not able to run that command when logged in as my wife. It asked for her password, and of course she can't run that as root. Should I run it in my own terminal, and if so, how should the command look? For instance if her username was jane, should it be sudo chown -Rc jane:jane home ? Thanks! P...

[SOLVED] Setting Permissions after copy on dual boot

I could use some guidance on setting permissions. I've phasing out my use of Windows 7 by setting up Linux Mint Xfce on a dual boot desktop machine. I'm the administrator, my wife is a regular user. One of the things that I did was to copy over her files from the Windows side of the hard disk ("OS")...

Re: <SOLVED> Wine, playonlinux or not worth the hassle?

Thanks for the responses - yes I have been thinking I will give a VM a go, but I'm having other issues with mint, for example I cant get a simple ftp server to work. Its very frustrating trying to find information and troubleshoot. And the man pages appear to be written in a language foreign to me....

Three Strikes and Second Round

I first used Linux Mint about 10-11 years ago when I thought my Win XP machine was dying ... I set up a dual boot, thinking I had nothing to lose at that point. Turns out it was just the monitor that was dying, but it gave me a taste of Linux. That worked for awhile, but within a year or so the comp...

So given the bugginess of RB and the lack of a way to delete pcasts from my ipod on Mint it looks like I am going to have to keep my win7 dual boot...such a shame.
