Looking to set up a lastpass type system using keepass(x/x 2/2)

So with all of these issues surrounding sites being hacked, databases being stolen, governments doing shady things and the cloud being not nearly as trustworthy as people make it out to be, I'm looking to set up my own pseudo last pass type of a setup.

I'm running arch linux on my primary desktop, linux mint on my primary laptop, ubuntu on my central media/whatever I want to do server with an unlocked android phone.

I'm sure my ignorance is going to shine through here, so let me start by saying up to this point I haven't used lastpass or keepass(or any of it's alternative implementations)

What my dream would be would be to have a central keepass server set up on my server and have keepass clients on all of my devices that either access or constantly sync up with the database on the server. I would really like to have browser plugins (firefox and firefox mobile) that will auto-fill for all the websites that I go to because I'm planning on using very complex randomly generated passwords that would be extremely secure and impossible to remember. I want to be something that I can set up and just point everything at it and forget it. Seamless. What's the best way to do this while being as compatible as possible? Keepassx? Keepassx 2? Keepass 2 using mono? I have my concerns with using Keepass 2 with mono as I'm not sure that it's really intended to be run on linux and it could be left in the dust eventually or something could be done to break compatibility since it's primary goal is to be run on windows, but then Keepassx 2 is in alpha and moving at a snail's pace from what I can see, plus I don't know if it's production ready seeing as how it is alpha. Then there is just regular Keepassx which I'm not sure if that's just antequated and doesn't support the feature set I need.

Does anyone have any input or ideas? Is this possible or is it all just a pipe dream?
