DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

-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.

USAGE

launchers
  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`).

SECURITY

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 transport.
