How Do I Install Lastpass?
 
I downloaded lastpass (lplinux.tar.bz2). I ran; tar xjvf lplinux.tar.bz2
cd lplinux && ./install_lastpass.sh

In Terminal I got; tar (child): lplinux.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now


What did I do wrong? How should it be typed exactly in terminal?

Thank you,

Chris.

P.S. It's getting old to shut down, boot into windows just to go to sites that need a password.

This error indicates you either did not receive the file, or you were not in the directory the file is in when you ran the command.

Personally I would not use this application. It appears you wind up storing your passwords on some other system. That is a very large security risk. I don't care how secure they claim to be, they are your passwords, guard them on your own hardware.

There are other options. Keepassx is the one I use. You create your own data base of passwords, on the system you choose to protect.

I would bet most distros have a package for keepassx. There is another one called keepass. I have not used it, although it may be a good choice.

You don't.
Or you should't.
Goto https://lastpass.com/ and click Get Lastpass for free.

LastPass was recently acquired by Logmein. This has not been viewed as a propitious development.

I also use KeePassX and am quite happy with it.

I did what you said, and it worked. I now have it.


Thank you,
Chris.

Glad it worked out!

LastPass is a browser extension, not a separate local application. I use both, and periodically sync the passwords via export/import. LastPass is more convenient, but I keep another password safe up to date, just in case.
