I would like to install Password Safe in TAIL 0.22 to an usb drive so i can use this drive everytime i use TAILS to store my passes.
Is it possible at all?
I tried to do this with the passwordsafe-debian-0.92BETA.i686.deb file from your website in the terminal with apt commands. I even figured out how to get and install the missing packages which are need for PassSafe. After then i tried to install the .deb file and i got this:
amnesia@amnesia:~/Persistent$ sudo dpkg -i passwordsafe-debian-0.92BETA.i686.deb

Preparing to replace passwordsafe 0.92BETA (using passwordsafe-debian-0.92BETA.i686.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement passwordsafe ...
Setting up passwordsafe (0.92BETA) ...
Processing triggers for man-db ...
and now i really dont know what happened. Is it installed? If yes then where and how can i use it? How can i set it to install itself to an usb drive?
and im really new to unix/linux based systems so pls be nice with me :D :D :D
hmm, i did not get too much help here as it seems :D
nevermind, i just realized in the meantime that keepassX password safe is a long time integrated element in the TAILS incongnito system and it is working nicely and smoothly so i do not need password safe under TAILS anymore.
please close this, thanks
I thought I'd "dust off" this OLD thread as I have the EXACT same question today
Does anyone have a simple "cookbook" as to how to install and run the Linux version of Password Safe under the current versions (3.x) of Tails? https://tails.boum.org/
I indeed HAVE successfully gone thru the multi-step conversion process involved in converting from Password Safe to Tails' built-in KeyPass ...
... but I'd rather not have to repeat that process every time I make a change to an entry in my Windows-based Password Safe.
I'm still a relative Noob to Linux, so please be kind and try to use "small words". <wink>
Can you use Wine (https://www.winehq.org) in Tails? Last time I tried Windows PwS running in Wine, it worked fairly well; though there were a few issues that you could maybe live with.
I've just tried the following:
1. Add an administrator to Tails upon startup
2. After Tails starts, open a terminal
3. From the terminal, run the command 'sudo apt-get install passwordsafe' (You will be prompted for the admin password you set up in step 1)
4. This will fetch and install a (slightly old) version of PasswordSafe
5. You should then be able to run the program by typing 'pwsafe' at the shell prompt
I'll "give it a try" ...
... appreciate the assist.
Unfortunately, no success while running Tails 3.2.
Although I did confirm that I was connected to the internet via Tor ... all I was able to generate was a "Unable to locate package passwordsafe" message.
Copy of terminal transcript follows:
amnesia@amnesia:~$ sudo apt-get install passwordsafe
We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.
