Running KeePass on OS X under Mono
April 3, 2011 7:59 PM   Subscribe

PEBKACFilter: I'm trying to run KeePass under Mono on OS X. I can't, for the life of me, understand the installation instructions. Help!

For now, I believe I'm stuck on step 3, "On some platforms, the Runtime namespace (System.Runtime) is offered as a separate package. KeePass requires this package; so if you see one, install it, too."

I think I don't have it? How would I check? Where do I get it? How do I install it? Please answer these questions as if you were instructing a four year old. I have no idea where to start.

I do have Mono is successfully installed & tested, and it includes the Windows Forms implementation. But when I attempt to run the portable version of KeePass, I get the error, "Cannot open assembly 'KeePass.exe': File does not contain a valid CIL image." I suspect my issue is with the runtime namespace, but if not, and if you have any insight, please let me know.

I'm sure I'm just overlooking something very obvious here.

Could you possibly be overlooking the existence of KeePassX?

Response by poster: Oh yea, I've been trying to figure this thing out so long I forgot to add the original reason I started down this path in the first place:

The reason I'm trying to do this is because I'm want to integrate KeePass with Chrome. For this I need keepasshttp, and it seemed like I'd need mono for this. But, reading it again, I'm not sure I understand those directions either.

I already do use KeePassX - if I can make it work with that, that would be wonderful.
