I have KeePass 2.23 running under mono in Ubuntu 13.10. It works very well but I cannot get the auto-type to work. The shortcut is correct because if I leave out "--auto-type", KeePass is run with Ctrl+Alt+A. I suspect that the malfunctioning has something to do with the xdotools (I tried one from the Ubuntu repository and I also tried to install different version manually).
Is there some way to debug this so that I find out what the problem is?
This page has details of the xdotools version required. http://keepass.info/help/v2/setup.html#mono
After that I don't know what to suggest.
Thanks Paul. I know of that requirement and both of the xdotools I tried have higher version than the one stated. I'm not sure that xdotools are at fault but I currently cannot think of anything else and I don't now how to find out.
You could try the Ubuntu forum.
You could also try the last development snapshot that I posted in the following thread:
This invokes xdotool in a different way.
Thanks Dominik. I'll give it a try.
Just in case it doesn't work, is there some debug mode with logging I could turn KeePass into so that I can see what's going on? Is there a way to know how KeePass is calling xdotool so that I can test it myself?
I've tried the new version and it hasn't changed anything for me so something else is the problem.
Do you have another package installed that works with the clipboard / keyboard?
If you right-click onto a KeePass entry and choose 'Perform Auto-Type', does it send anything?
If you run KeePass with a terminal (e.g. right-click on KeePass.exe and open it with 'Mono Runtime (Terminal)', do you see any output produced during the auto-type process?
