The only lastpass available in my Debian testing repositories is "lastpass-cli". The "cli" stands for command line interface, so to use it you need to open a terminal and input man lastpass to view the manual and figure out how to use it via command line.

The executable file will likely be found in /usr/bin and other /bin type locations.

EDIT: The package(s) downloaded for the installation on a Debian based system will be in /var/cache/apt/archives. Using an graphical archive utility, you can look into or extract files from the packages. All files including the executable will be in the data.tar.xz in a directory tree matching the root directory tree of the OS. For instance, in the install package, the executable may be found in a folder called "bin" which is in a folder called "usr", that is where it will be installed in the system.

Hi...

In addition to Brains suggestion, does this page help?

It's not available in the Mint repos though.

OP, where did you download that program from (which web page and which variety/option did you choose)? Was it one of the downloads from here? https://lastpass.com/misc_download2.php

The "how" of its installation may determine where the program was installed to. You *COULD* do "locate lastpass" or (as root), run "find / -iname lastpass*", and it will search your whole drive (and will take a minute or two). Have you clicked the launcher, perhaps, and just tried typing in "lastpass", to see if something pops up?

Re-read the OP's original question. They didn't ask where the data files were, but where the program itself was installed.

If it's a .deb, then:

$ dpkg -c <package>.deb | grep -i bin

Where the bin should strip out the various /bin/ /sbin/ /usr/bin/ /usr/sbin/ or false positives that have bin in other spots of their name.

If installed from sources, it probably defaulted to /usr/local/bin/ if you didn't override it with "--prefix=/usr" on the configure part. Which may not be in your $PATH and not find-able without a fullpath (and permissions). The package stow can help manage these types of sources if it's something you do often.

Thanks for all the info you all gave me! Think I'll try the KeePassX since it's a listed download.

I found the web site by doing a google search "linux lastpass".

Thanks again!

You do realise this means you may now have lastpass installed erroneously somewhere that your packaging system can now not support??
