Ok, is there some kind of pwd generator for linux like this one for Windows that has a nice GUI and options like this win-version has? I know that there is pwgen but as far as I know it does not support mouse/keyboard entropy and it does not have any kind of front end GUI-s.. or does it?

thank you

For a command-line tool, you might wanna look at mkpasswd. – Bobby Aug 20 '10 at 11:57

You may have some luck with pwxgen on Linux.
