Installing Keepassx on Puppy Linux, howto

Today I installed Keepassx, the 'open source password manager' (see http://www.keepassx.org/) on a computer running Puppy Linux (Quirky Retro 1.2).

Keepassx is compatible with KeePass for Windows, as long as you use the 1.x series. Ports of the 2.x series probably require .NET (or Mono) to run; both are quite large (per http://keepass.info).

Here's how I did it:
o From Debian.org, I downloaded this package from Debian, selecting the binary for my architecture (i386):

http://packages.debian.org/lenny/keepassx

o In ROX-Filer, I installed it by clicking the package file.

o Then I clicked 'console' on the desktop and typed, 'keepassx'. One by one, I got error messages for various missing libraries. Searching:

http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_contents

I found the missing libraries in the following packages, which I then installed:

http://packages.debian.org/lenny/libqt4-xml
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/libqtgui4
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/libqtcore4
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/libaudio2

  3. Accurate, wonderfully succinct instructions. I wasn't able to get KeePassx up and running until I came across this post.
