I am running KeePass2 under Debian and Xfce (via mono), which basically works fine. I know there is KeePassX for Linux, but I would rather stick to KeePass2. The only bug (?) I have found so far is that no system tray icon is shown.

Is there any way to fix this in Xfce?

KeePass uses the NotifyIcon class provided by the framework, thus this issue must be fixed in Mono (not KeePass). So plz wait. You can see more here – Narga Mar 19 '14 at 1:38

I knew this is an old question but here is the solution:

You can install a plugin for KeePass2 to make it runs with the indicator icon. First you need to add this ppa:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dlech/keepass2-plugins

Then you need to update with the new ppa:

sudo apt-get update

And finally install the plugin:

sudo apt-get install keepass2-plugin-application-indicator

From now on, when you start KeePass2, it will load this plugin and show the KeePass icon at the tray bar. I tested it on Xubuntu 14 and it works flawlessly. All credit goes to this guy:

Thanks for pointing this out. However, I have switched to LastPass in the meantime ;) – Matthias Sep 21 '14 at 10:50
