       fpm2 - Figaro´s Password Manager 2


       fpm2  is a GUI password manager using the GTK2 libraries. Passwords are
       encrypted using the AES-256 algorithm.


       -f filename
              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

       on-the-fly categories
              Each password entry can belong to a category, which is generated
              just by naming it in at least one entry.

       password generation
              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
