    I’m new to Linux and am using the Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn in a VMWare Guest 5.5.4 build 44386

    KeepassX seems to be running ok and I can create groups and entries but when I run it from a terminal I get errors. Should I be worried about this?

    $ ./
    ./ 6: ./bin/keepass: not found

    I don’t get it?

    @Buzz – Did you leave the “” file in the default folder it was extracted in? It should be in the “KeePass-x.x.x” directory (where -x.x.x is the version). If you moved “” to a different location, you will need to edit the “appname=” line and hardcode in the full path to ‘KeePass-x.x.x/bin/keepass’……

    BTW, The “appname=” line could be better written as:

    cd `dirname $0` ; appname=`pwd`/bin/keepass

    This is much better than hardcoding the path, although “” still needs to be in the “KeePass-x.x.x” directory….. 🙂

    I downloaded and extracted the bundle version 0.2.2 and it works fine in my ~/download folder.
    however, when i copy it to either my ext2 or my fat formatted usb sticks, the won’t start.
    it returns the following error:

    “bash: ./ /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Keine Berechtigung”
    (from the console)


    “Failed to execute child process “/media/usbdisk/KeePassX-0.2.2/” (Keine Berechtigung)”
    (when i start the in my thunar-filemanager)

    note: “Keine Berechtigung” is German for “permission denied”

    i already did a chmod -R 777 /media/usbdisk and made myself the owner of all and everything on the stick in order to grant myself all the permissions i could possibly need…

    what am i missing to make the app work properly on my usb-flash-drive please?
