Compile keepass 2.0.3 on Linux

KeepassX webpage states: “KeePassX is an application for people with extremly high demands on secure personal data management. It has a light interface, is cross platform and published under the terms of the GNU General Public License.”

These steps have been executed on a Debian Linux 8.6.0 but for an experienced System Administrator/Hacker this should be trivial.

First you should have these packages installed:

apt-get install cmake g++ libqt4-core libqt4-dev libgcrypt-dev zlib1g zlib1g-dev

Now you can download the latest keepassX package and compile it:

tar zxvf keepassx-2.0.3.tar.gz
cd keepassx-2.0.3/
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local ..

As root:

make install

Now you could for example, add the access on a fluxbox window manager:
It works.
