    Using antix 17._386 with IceWM and am trying to install keepassxc. It is not in the repos I have installed but is available in various debian versions and a snap version.
    Which should I install and how please?

    well, you can’t install the snap on antiX because snaps require systemd.

    I have read that it is in debian buster repos. So if you switch to antiX 19 (beta3 now; 19.0 ready in a month or two perhaps?) it will be easy.
    I’ve also read it’s in Stretch backports, so maybe that’s an option for you.

    You can embed Steve’s repo in apt.

    For Debian 9 everything as root

    echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser:/keepassxc/Debian_9.0/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:stevenpusser:keepassxc.list
    apt-get update
    apt-get install keepassxc
    

    Add the key as follows:

    wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser:keepassxc/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O Release.key
    apt-key add - < Release.key
    apt-get update

    Hi and many thanks for the replies.
    I am using antix because it is an excellent system which still works well on my 32 bit laptop.
    I think I would like to go down the upgrade route to get the version 19 beta and then use the Buster repo. to get keepassxc.
    Has anybody the time to help me with this upgrade please or do I have to do a fresh install?

    An upgrade from antiX17(16 etc) –> to antiX19 is generally not recommended.

    Many thanks for the reply. I am working on another machine and system at present but liked KeePassXC so much I shall use it on my Antix Laptop. Just contemplating a new installation first so I do not waste the effort as there is no simple upgrade path so fresh install is the way to go.
    Thanks again,
    Budgie
