You are welcome!

I also see you are using Debian, so probably if you open a thread in the Debian forum you will go to the top of the list and probably get a quick, helpful reply.

gvaught,

This link for the PPA should help you:

https://launchpad.net/~jtaylor/+archive/ubuntu/keepass

You probably need to change your sources list to avoid that error.

EDIT

I did not notice that you had changed from Mint to Debian.

A more detailed response is at post #19.

btw, where is that new thread of yours?

gvaught,

I have just done the following on Linux Mint 17.3 and KeePass2 installed without any problem:

Code:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jtaylor/keepass -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install keepass2 -y
Since you are now using Debian instead of Linux Mint as originally, you need to refer to:

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/utils/keepass2


Download:

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/utils/keepass2

Scroll to bottom of page to Download keepass2 and click on all.

Then follow the instructions on that page.

***Make sure that the incorrect source is removed before you start the above.

My hardware is a Dell Precision T5500 with 2 x Xeon 5520's and 58GB RAM. It also has a Radeon 7970 (I think! It's definitely an older AMD) graphics card to power the multiple monitors. The monitors are 2 x 1600x1200 Dell's (2010FP I think) and 1 x 2560x1440 Dell (U2515H). I also have 1 x 256GB SSD and 1 x 1.5GB HDD. I also have another 128GB SSD that I may use as my guinea pig to test distros before installing on the 256GB SSD.
1. The Radeon 7970 is well supported by the free driver. Make sure you have a Mesa library with OpenMAX (libomxil-bellagio) support builtin (not required but recommended), Install libtxc-dxtn for S3TC support if needed, and grab driconf to configure your card.

2. SSD drives are well supported by JFS and BtrFS and other modern file systems. I would use a swap partition, but only use the minimum since you have so much RAM.

3. As far as monitors, use the separated xorg.conf.d directory with segregated configurations for each.

4. As far as Windows migration, look into open source alternatives as well as WiNE to ease yourself into things. I would recommend an older distribution like Debian or Slackware to really learn the ins and outs of GNU/Linux. The *buntus are more for generalized try it before you buy it and do a little too much hand holding for my tastes. Debian and Slackware really make you learn how to do things, which will serve you better in the long run.

There seems to be nothing in that ppa for Debian, only for Ubuntu.
Quote:
This PPA can be added to your system manually by copying the lines below and adding them to your system's software sources.

Display sources.list entries for:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jtaylor/keepass/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/jtaylor/keepass/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main
Debian does not use PPAs. It's possible to add outside sources to sources.list or a list file in sources.list.d, but the ppa in question has nothing that I can find that mentions Jessie, only the Ubuntu releases.

You don't need a ppa for KeePass2, it's available in the regular Debian repositories.

Correct, as per my earlier post (#19).

I understand that KeePass_ (1, 2 or X) is available on Debian, but for some reason I cannot get it to install on my system, running Jessie.

At this point, I've tried so many things (a lot of which were advertised for Debian, but turned out to be Ubuntu) that I think I've got too much corruption for me to recover. I think I'll back up my downloads and data then reinstall a clean OS and get KeePass installed very first thing. I'll see how that works. Then I can move on to other installs.

gvaught,

That is a good idea to reinstall and start again with a clean slate.

It is definitely KeePass2 that you need:

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/utils/keepass2

To install keepass2, all you need is
Code:
apt install keepass2
as root. If you have sudo installed, you can use that in front. Be advised, that will install a lot of stuff, because mono is a dependency, and it's big. Or you can use Synaptic if you're used to Ubuntu and want only a GUI. Search for keepass, mark it for installation, accept the other proposed installations, click the green check mark, and wait. If neither of those works, you have serious problems with your system.

I have encountered no issues running KeepassX v. 2.x.
