Keepass on Chromebook
KeePass Chrome allows you access to your KeePass database offline. I ran into a few issues not related to the app but it loads perfectly off my SD Card. My only complaint is its read only so any editing must be done on a computer and then saved to a SD Card.
In the Linux world KeepassX is more popular but it will not work with KeePass Chrome. You will need to use KeePass Password Safe to save a database that will work with KeePass Chrome.
For me, on Linux, I was not able to get KeepassX to covert to Keepass Password Safe correctly. After I re-created my database in Keepass Password Safe and saved it to the SD Card it worked like a charm.
Overall, the app worked real nice. Christoph Walcher did a great service by making this available offline. Those of us who are uncomfortable with LastPass want offline access, so it made little sense have KeePass apps that were cloud based.
