Keepit: unsupported file version detected
I am looking forward to using Keepit on my Ubuntu Touch device (Nexus 5), but when I attempt to open my imported *.kbdx database file, Keepit displays the error message "Unsupported file version detected". How do I tell what version of .kbdx I have? Would this error message be referring to .kbdx file version or the .key file version? I tried contacting the main developer, DannyGB, on the project's github page, but my post has not yet received any response from them.
I don't know the answer for your question but IIRC Keeweb supports
kdbxfiles out of the box.
@advocatux Thank you for your prompt response to my post. I tried to use keeweb, but I could never get it to open my *.kdbx. When I tap the "Open" icon, I can select my *.kdbx file; however, when I tap either the "Click to open a file" box or the "Enter"/carriage return icon, nothing happens. Am I missing something?
@tubaclarinet what UT version are you running on your device?
@CiberSheep can you give us any pointer?
Version 16.04 OTA-7 stable
I don't understand where are you stack. Could you send a screenshot of the page you are clicking with no response. please?
@CiberSheep Attached are screenshots of 1. the "Unsupported file version detected" message from Keepit, and 2. the screenshot from Keeweb, both of which I described in my posts found above.![1_1549573679075_screenshot20190207_135859797.png](Uploading 100%) ![0_1549573679074_screenshot20190125_140936526.png](Uploading 100%)
Arg...something's wrong. I get the above when I attempt to upload the screenshots. Do you know what's wrong with these uploads?

@tubaclarinet image uploading is still broken, sorry.
@CiberSheep Okay, sorry for the delay. You can find a screenshot of the page which I am clicking at https://www.dropbox.com/s/ivctl275uzuyk4a/screenshot20190207_135859797.png?dl=0.
Strangely enough, that screenshot includes the "Enter"/carriage return icon; however, that icon no longer displays on the page since I have reinstalled the app on my phone. Same behavior following the reinstall though.
@tubaclarinet image uploading is fixed now
@advocatux Thanks for the notification. I will try uploading the screenshot now...
@tubaclarinet Thanks for your patience
I don't know about KeepIt I guess the file type you are trying to read in it is not supported.
Talking about KeeWeb, after opening the file should be listed in the bottom area. Tap in it, insert the password and tap enter. That should be it.

@tubaclarinet maybe you could try to open your *.kdbx file on your PC and check if the file is not corrupted. If the file is OK then indeed you might have some old format of kdb file but that's not a problem to convert it to the never version. In the past i had some old kdb files from keepas that i couldn't open on my PC due to old format. I had to use some older keepas version that could open them and save them in new format that was supported by new password managers.
@tricky Thank you for your reply. I actually created a few test files for testing on Keepit and Keeweb, but they still do not work.
@CiberSheep Unfortunately, after I use File Manager to select the keepass file which I want to open, the file is not listed below in the app (see screenshot). What am I missing? Would you mind please posting a video of you selecting a keepass file, selecting a key file, then opening that keepass file so that I can see what the process is supposed to look like? Thank you
@tubaclarinet Let's see:
- Tap on Open
- Choose source of the database i.e. File Manager
- Select the database:
- Accept the warning
- Type your password:
- Read the database (mine is empty)
The test database is here
The pasword is: 1234

Thanks for your work on this app @CiberSheep
Hey everyone, I was finally able to get KeeWeb to work. Yay! Just in case you're experiencing the same trouble as I was: at first, I couldn't get it to work until I told it to not display the "local file" message any more. The rest of the app wouldn't respond until that non-displaying message was acknowledged. Once I tried it in desktop mode, I could finally see the message & tell it to stop displaying- then the app worked.
