fpm2 - Figaro´s Password Manager 2
fpm2 is a GUI password manager using the GTK2 libraries. Passwords are
encrypted using the AES-256 algorithm.
Use a different file to store fpm data. Must include directory
where file is stored.
-t Start fpm2 hidden in tray. No ask for password on startup.
Arbitrary launchers can be defined, in order to automatically
launch progammes with parameters from the password entry, eg:
xterm -title $u@$a -e ssh -X $a -l $u.
Possible variables are:
$a - an arbitrary argument associated with the password entry
- typically a hostname.
$u - the username associated with the password entry
$p - the password associated with the password entry
Each password entry can belong to a category, which is generated
just by naming it in at least one entry.
fpm2 will generate passwords for you. Up to 24 characters with a
boolean choices for lowercase, uppercase, numbers, symbols and
ambigous characters (eg. `O` and `0`).
Using the $p variable means that your password ends up in .bash_history
in addition to being visible by ps aux!
In order to work around this problem conveniently fpm2 can have your
password copied to your primary selection, so that you may easily paste
it where needed. Then your password should be as secured as your
