New Product Request: 1Password for Linux

  • +1 for Linux. Since Heartbleed I and some folks of mine are looking for a cross platform pw storage. Since we use Ubuntu on a daily basis we would appreciate if you consider support at least, for debian.

  • Yeah. I've already posted here before but I'd like to reaffirm my interest for 1Password on Linux.

    My primary use of Windows is just for gaming, and with more developers (spearheaded by Valve's effort on gaming for Linux, partly through the Steam Machines and Steam OS initiative) making games that have support for Linux, I will probably no longer use Windows in the long-term.

    Running 1Password (for me) on Windows seems a bit dodgy as well. Would rather not have my passwords compromised due to running the app (with its database) on Windows, while on Linux, it is more safer.

  • Hey @Philippe-AG , are you referring to Chrome running in WINE or to native Linux Chrome running?

  • Native chrome, 1Password in Wine

    I love 1Password but I'm stuck with Lastpass for now because a lot of my time when working is on linux.

    I really prefer 1Password + dropbox and would love to see linux version.

    Thanks for the feedback, @fungku! I've added your vote for a Linux version.

  • Thanks. If it matters, linux flavor is Ubuntu.

    You're welcome! :)

  • Begging you for a Linux client. I'm on Ubuntu 13.10 and as of this morning I can't use 1Password with it because I started getting the "can't access key data file" message for encryptionKeys.js when I try to use 1PasswordAnywhere. The proper clients on Mac and iOS work fine.

    Your vote had been added, @spork. Thanks for the feedback! :)

  • Another vote for 1Password for Linux.......... paying customer who can't access passwords on Ubuntu :(

  • I just installed 1Password for Windows Beta under WINE (Arch Linux) and downloaded Firefox extension beta (4.2.0.b16), but I get a error: Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (onepassword4-extension) isn't associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

    Is the Firefox extension supposed to work or only the Chrome one?

    I'm using beta version of Firefox (Aurora) but also tried with regular Firefox and same problem.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Linuxsupport would be fantastic and it would be great if you could make this happen.

    Firefox is a bit of a problem...

    Before all this make sure you disabled browser validation. You need to have 1Password in WINE started, go to Help > Restart 1Password Helper. After all this, you can start firefox

  • I second that ! A firefox/chrome and stand-alone app for Ubuntu would be awesome !

    Linux please. I use Mac, Windows, Linux, and iPhone. My Linux machines get MUCH less use because I'd have to lookup a password, rather than just use the browser extension icon. Please make a Linux version.

    Thank you for letting us know that you too would like to see a full-featured Linux version of 1Password, Milton! In the meantime, you can use the browser extensions in conjunction with 1Password 4 for Windows (currently in beta) under WINE. I hope that helps a little bit. :)

    @Milton Bliss‌ or you can use 1password anywhere if you are using chrome. Be sure to read the discussion to know the risks..

    Now that I have dipped into Linux as a replacement for an old XP system, I too would love to continue having access to the 1Password application in this new (to me) environment. So please add my vote. ;) I have gone with Mint + Cinnamon in case that matters toward the voting.

    @khad has said this many times before in this and other threads, but until now it didn't impact me that I didn't know what to do with it.

    1Password 4 for Windows (currently in beta) under WINE.

    Can someone please share a sequenced list of steps to actually accomplish this for 1Password? I don't want to become a WINE expert just for this one application if I can help it, and I'm sure it would be nice for others interested in the same thing to see it fleshed out as a specific procedure for our favorite product. No implication of warranty or support for the steps would be needed.

    Thus far it has been left as an exercise for the reader since there are so many different distros (not to mention package management systems). I'll see if I can get something put together. I suspect we may not have the cycles to devote to a tutorial for an unsupported configuration, but I'll add it to my list.

    In the meantime, it would be awesome if someone in the community could share what steps they took. Even a rough outline could help get the ball rolling for others (including us). :)

  • I'll give a look at the Wine trick, but a full Linux 1Password AND browser plugin has my full +1

    Thank you, @TitiMoby! I'll make sure your vote is counted. :)

    Since no one stepped right up I'm working up a rough draft now… I should have something soon.

    Keep in mind that I am using Linux Mint, and that your situation may be different than mine. Different software packages come pre-installed with different Linux distributions. The first step is where that will matter the most.

    1. Install Wine using your normal package manager or download and install from WineHQ downloads if you’re interested in the very latest stable or beta builds of Wine.

    I used one of my built-in package managers ("Menu > Administration > Software Manager") to install the wine package. A package called wine-gecko will also need to be installed to use 1Password for Windows. Wine will offer to do this for you if is needed, but it is recommended by the folks at WineHQ that you use your package manager instead if your default Linux build doesn’t already have wine-gecko (or any other pre-requisites) installed. So I installed wine-gecko at this point as well.

    1. Using a web browser in your Linux environment, download 1Password for Windows from Download AgileBits Software for the latest released version or follow the instructions given for downloading if you’re a member of the 1Password 4 for Windows beta group.

    2. In your Downloads folder, locate and right-click on the downloaded 1Password .exe file and select “Open With > Wine Windows Program Loader”.

    If this is the first time you’ve used Wine on this system you’ll likely see one or more window pop up telling you about setting up Wine, etc.

    1. If all the requisite packages have been installed you will now see the 1Password Setup Wizard window. Continue installing 1Password for Windows as if you were on a Windows system.

    2. On the Desktop is the 1Password key icon that when double-clicked should launch 1Password for Windows… running on/under/in Wine.

    For me, an unusable “1Password.lnk” icon was also placed on the Linux Desktop. This was likely caused by one of the Setup Wizard checkboxes that I enabled as I went through the steps.

    You should now have a functioning 1Password for Windows application. When you first run it you'll need to tell it where your 1Password data is stored, and setup any other preferences you're interested in. Use of 1Password in your Linux web browsers won't work, but at least your data is accessible through the application. I see that with 1Password 4 for Windows beta there is some discussion about how to enable the web browser extension (again unsupported), but I haven't tried it.

    @MartyS, you rock! Thank you for posting that. I'm sure it will help a lot of other folks. :)

  • +1 for 1Password for Linux

    Thanks for letting us know you are interested in this, @hhmue‌! :)

  • In my experience Linux users don't pay for software, so...

    I have a note that https://github.com/plaguemorin/secret-archer is a compatible PyGObject/GTK3 application, but the page has disappeared. Anybody know anything?
