Now go to https://extensions.gnome.org/
Install required extensions after downloading the browser extension. In case of firefox, you may need to disable extension compatibility checking.
You can control extensions and their settings from gnome-tweak-tool
You may also want to move everything from ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
The lower left corner legacy icons are an irritation. To move them, install the GNOME shell extension TopIcons. This moves the legacy tray icons shown in this bar to the main GNOME bar, up in the top right by the menu.
I got the following error in Chrome after transferring my WordPress install across servers:
“This website has a redirect loop”, and seemed to redirect to a url with the signup link.
On Firefox, the error was: “The page isn’t redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.”
I tried the following:
Clearing cookies.. Duh
Setting the following permissions (recommended for the install. See Codex.)
Keepass, an open source software, is arguably one of the best password management tools available. My personal favorite is Lastpass for the sheer number of available features, and because of close integration with Chrome. Keepass however seems to have a few issues with Chrome, though Firefox integration with the Keefox extension is perfect.
Download KeePassHttp.plgx from the Github repo here. (If you omit this step, you will get a “KeePassHttp: Error: NETWORK_ERR: XMLHttpRequest Exception 101” error.
Copy the downloaded file to C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2\plugins (for 64 bit Win7/8). You can use the environment variable:
%PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\KeePass Password Safe 2
Now visit any site with a username/password field, Click on the small Chromipass icon and follow the prompts to Connect Chromipass and Keypass.
Run Keepass, create a database, and add either a Master password or Master Password+Composite key (This is a composite key. Both Key and password will be required), or just a Key.
Import your prior passwords (If using Lastpass, export from Lastpass to a .csv file, and then import the .csv file into Keepass, using the Keepass menu>Import>Generic csv importer.
Save the key database (Only on saving does your master password and key file get updated into the database).
Common errors and their solutions:
Error #1: Unable to start HttpListener: System.Net.HttpListenerException (0x80004005): Failed to listen on Prefix ‘http://localhost:19455/’ because it conflicts with an existing registation on the machine.
The error is due to two copies of the file KeePassHttp.plgx. In my case, I had one at C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2\plugins, and another one at C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2. I deleted the latter, and the error disappeared.
Installing Keepass in Ubuntu 12.10:
Install Keepass from the Ubuntu repo. Install latest Firefox from Mozilla. Now download and install the Keefox plugin for Firefox. Manually copy the .pglx file from the Firefox profile folder to /usr/lib/keepass2 (as suggested by the extension). Open up Keepass2 and then Firefox. Opening the database links them up.
Note: You need to use the correct path as applicable to your PC.
Association of Chrome with Chromipass and Keepass2 is buggy. It works on some sites but not on others. The author himself states that he was unable to associate these properly with the .pglx extension. The steps are the same. Get the specific files from Github, copy them to /usr/lib, install Keepass2 from the repo, and Chromipass from Chrome web store.
Note that the folder /usr/lib should contain the following files:
