Solved: Migrate password manager

Been using password-gorilla for years.  But on an install to a new machine - it was the first program I added that had tck-tk dependencies.  Not a bad thing per se, but I have small partitions on small storage devices for /    And I do like QT as an end-user.

Would it be worth my while to migrate to keepassx?   Does not look like there is anything migrate passwords from gorilla to anything else - so it would be a bit of hand pasting for any migration.   

My phone is dumb - so no need at this time to evaluate pwsafe - etc. 


Looking at cli options

http://blog.sanctum.geek.nz/linux-crypto-passwords/

aptitude show pass

yields nothing on a stable debian   However the apt-get response on a testing debian shows version 1.4.2-1 available.   Looking at backports I do not see a backported pass available for stable.  Am I incorrect in believing that pass is only for testing and onwards at this point in time?

Yup, looks like pass is only in Jessie and up. Could try apt pinning it. Doesn't seem to have too many dependencies, so I don't foresee any issues.

Re: Solved: Migrate password manager

keepassx is awesome. i use it constantly both on the desktop and a variant on my phone. i think the feature set is better than others (e.g. auto type w/ secure insertion - no clipboard). and it's open source! you can change the crypto algo is you wanna be uber secure (i hate rijndael, im a serpent 256 guy).

+1 for KeepassX

If Gorilla can export to xml, then you should be able to import into KeepassX.

Re: Solved: Migrate password manager

I second the recommendation of KeePassX; works on Windows, Linux, and OSX, with variants available for Android and iOS devices.
