The current DEB package 0.2.2 has a prerequisite of libpng3 which is not on the eeePC when new. Instructions for a successful install can be found at:

I can't make it work after using the auto installer

Postby steveg » 04 Apr 2008, 01:10

I followed the instructions at http://www.x2on.de/tutorials.html#eee-keepassauto-en and it installed several files on the system but I have absolutely no idea how to run it. Can someone help me please?

This Asus eee is the first linux machine I've owned after many Windows machines so I'm not that familiar with it yet. I only got it today.

I've been using keepass on windows for years so I'm very keen to get it working on my Asus.

I don't have an icon on the desktop anywhere.

It's under /usr/bin/keepass or /usr/local/bin/keepass I guess.

@x2on:
Why doesn't you build a deb package for eee pc? Wouldn't that be better than an install script?

Hi Tarek,

There is an executable in /usr/bin/keepass and an empty folder at /usr/local/bin/keepass but I don't know how to run it or add an icon to the desktop.

I don't know how to build a deb package or even know what one is. I'm a Windows developer but this is my first linux based machine and I've had it for less than 12 hours. I'm ashamed to admit that I don't know what I'm doing. Any advice at this point would be very welcome.

I'm also a bit worried about what the install script did to my machine. A search revealed "keepass" files all over the place and I've got no idea how to do a complete uninstall. I suspect that the problem is not as bad as I think it is but that I do need some education.

I thank you for your time.

Regards
Steve

You can start it from the terminal by simply typing /usr/local/bin/keepass and hitting return. As far as I can see from the install script, there is a link installed in the "AsusLauncher" (whatever that is) in the category work. Maybe that helps.

Hi Tarek,

Ok that sounds simple enough. I tried several ways to launch it last night and got errors with all of them That might not have been one of them so I'll try it out. I don't know what the AsusLauncher is either - I'll investigate.

I'm in the uk and it's early morning here. I won't have access to my Asus eee again until this evening so I'll give it a go then. Thank you for your help.

Can you suggest a simple tutorial that would help me to find my way around the linux file structure and how the system all hangs together?

I must say that I'm loving this little Asus machine. It's sitting on top of my 17 inch Dell Vostro (Enough to put me right off Vista lol) notebook right now and it's like David and Goliath. It's going to open up a lot of new possibilities for me because I'll be able to take it everywhere.

On my Asus there is no keepass in /usr/local/bin so I tried to run the keepassx in /usr/bin...

/> /usr/bin/keepassx
/usr/bin/keepassx: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by /usr/bin/keepassx)

It looks like I'm missing a library or something. Does this mean anything to you? If it does can you tell me how I can correct the problem please.

The script only installs two deb packages, keepassx downloaded with wget and libpng3 from the xandros repository!
Then the scripts add an icon for the easy mode!
Thats all
Here you can see what the script doo: http://www.x2on.de/eeepc/keepassinstall-en
