Recently I was looking for a better password manager. I used to use KeePass, but since I switched to linux as primary OS it has been at least to say annoying using KeePass. KeePass 2 has very nice Firefox integration using the KeeFox plugin. Unfortunately, KeePass is a .Net application, and even with mono, I could not get it to work. Even opening my database failed since password entering seems to be broken.
It worked, but I missed search functionality. Searching was introduced in version 1.6.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
It turns out that I am running an older version. Pass 1.6 requires version 1.7 of tree. That version is unavailable from the Fedora 20 repos, but it is available in rawhide. Switching to rawhide on a workstation is generally a bad idea, so I grabbed the rpm from the rawhide repos:
Then, grab pass version 1.6.1 from zx2c4’s website and install it:
1 2 3 4
There you have it: the latest version of pass on Fedora 20
