My only interaction with the KeePas* suite resulted in not being able to read the database after an upgrade/update/something.

I don’t remember which it was (2, x, whatever). The machine is at home. I’ll have to look, but I’m hoping we’ll get some reaction and info that maybe will point to a solution for me as well…

Subject: KeePass2 versus KeePassX

Happy New Year to everyone!!

I have been using KeePass2 on my Ubuntu machine for over 10 years (through wine), and I just discovered KeePassX as a native application. I use Keepass2 primarily as a password backup, as I also use LastPass with the chrome extension for my day to day password manager.

I have a couple of questions about moving from KeePass2/wine to KeePassX.

I found in one post that the differences that the database files are binary compatible. ( Can anyone confirm this?

The only other difference (other that GUI related stuff) is that KeePass2 has plugins and KeePassX does not. I am not using any plugins now. Are there any that you think are really valuable to have, and would be a reason not to switch?

Should I switch to KeePassX? I am assuming I can get rid of wine and save some disk space, and run a native application instead of a wine application.
