Installing Keepass2, keefox, keecloud on (K)Ubuntu 16.04

The objective of this post is to install keepass2, keefox, keecloud on Kubuntu 16.04.

Install keepass2

sudo aptitude install keepass2

Install keefox

Just after the installation, keefox will provide a link to a local file (KeePassRPC.plgx) that needs to be copied into the “plugins” directory of the keepass2 installation.

Furthermore, you need to adjust the path to the Keepass installation (you can change this setting in Firefox > Options > Keefox > Keepass).

Install the plugins

Keepass2 installation directory is:


I downloaded all the plugins concerned (the files that finish in *.plgx) in a subdirectory

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/keepass2/plugins
sudo cp Téléchargements/KeePassRPC.plgx /usr/lib/keepass2/plugins/
sudo cp Téléchargements/KeeCloud- /usr/lib/keepass2/plugins/

You also need to install mono-complete

sudo aptitude install mono-complete

Integrate with your desktop environment (KDE 5)

This come from the following resource:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dlech/keepass2-plugins
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install keepass2-plugin-application-indicator

You can now start Keepass2. The plugins should be compiled, and the installation of Keefox should be complete.
