KeePass 2 ignores commandline argument


I run the password manager KeePass2 with the following starter:

mono /opt/keepass2-mono/KeePass.exe /home/XXXXXXX/KeePass.kdbx
While the program runs fine, it does not select the database automatically (last argument). This used to work with KeePassX. Nor does KeePass2 remember the recently opened files (the menu remains empty).

What am I doing wrong?

My system: Ubuntu Natty 32bit, KeePass 2.15


PS: I have to use KeePass2 as I need to share the database with other OS where KeePass1 is not supported. And would love to see ported KeePass2 to linux without mono. Keepass2 also looks worse than KeePassX IMO.

KeePassX while aesthetically terrible I have found works better cross platform.

What do you mean by cross platform? KeePassX runs on *nix (Linux, possibly Unix); does it also run on other platforms? It is obviously compatible with KeePass (i.e., "KeePass1") on Windows. On Blackberry, the instructions from KeePass1 state (
"... Safe places to store your files are "/store/home/user/keepass" for OS 4.5 and earlier, and "/system/keepass" for OS 4.6. For OS 4.6.1 and greater, there's NO safe place to store your files. For this reason I recommend you upgrade to KeePass for the Desktop version 2.07 or greater and KeePassBB v2 which uses the device's internal memory to store the database instead of the file system."
Is it only not safe to sync or is there an inherent issue when using KeePass1 on a newer Blackberry?
