    Hi,
    I'm desperately trying to make KeePass 2.x work on my mac os 10.8.4.

    I tried KeePass2.20.1 for Mac from openix and KeePass 2.23 portable (started with 'mono /Applications/KeePass-2.23/KeePass.exe')

    I have Mono (I tried with Mono 2.10.11 and 3.2.1 with the same results. Which one should I use?), XQuartz 2.7.4, and xdotool installed.

    The portable KeePass generally works, but without auto-type. Moreover right clicking on an entry does not work.
    In options the shortcut for auto-type is set to None and it is greyed out so it is impossible to set it.
    Actually I'm not surprised that auto-type in portable KeePass can't work on MAC because it is simply written for Win, right?

    But the KeePass2.20.1 for Mac from openix crashes each time I start it, mostly during update attempt, but sometimes I'm able to close the update window - then it crashes when I try going to options.
    It crashes giving various problem reports each time, similar to those from thread https://sourceforge.net/p/keepass/discussion/329221/thread/f33726aa/ but not the one wotj font problem (I can provide some exemplary reports if it can help).

    I'd like to ask:
    1. Is it possible to install KeePass2.20.1 and make global auto-type work on Mac OS 10.8.4?
    2. How? :)

    And IMHO some short installation guide for MAC (saying what versions of what applications it requires) should be on http://keepass2.openix.be/

    Mono is included in the openix package. Start by removing KeePass and mono, then install the package from openix.
