I'm sorry, I don't mean to step on any toes here, but compared to Gpass the replacement app. Revelation simply stinks. There's no doubt in my mind that many people would agree with me on this, especially anyone who's ever *REALLY* used Gpass for all that it had to offer. Sometimes a program doesn't need to be maintained, if it's already attained perfection for what it is!
Case in Point: Not only did Gpass provide "standard" password efficiency, but with Gpass I could manage my 2 eBay accounts along with my Paypal account on the same page. Page you say? That's right, because Gpass permitted multiple lines of text that could be separated by one or more lines for neatness & efficiency. Another example, I have 4 sites where I go Online shopping on a regular basis, same user and same password, consequently they're all on one page too. Or how about this, with my virtual server I keep all of the SQL user and password accounts on the same page. And so on, and so forth ...
I have more examples, that's why I'm certain that I'm not the only one one who used Gpass like that.
When I import my Gpass password file into Revelation, those previous examples turn into huge wads of garbage text with no lines at all. To me, Revelation is an abomination, a fast "hurry up job" that could never stack up to Gpass, yet it's in the repositories just because it's maintained ??? What kind of logic is that? Replacing a great product with an inefficient one? That's the Ubuntu way? There was no reason to maintain Gpass any longer because it's evolved as far as it needed to go, and it meets *LINUX* criteria for being working software. Isn't that what Ubuntu is, LINUX ??? So here's the question (sorry about the rant, been depending on Gpass for the past 4 years).
Instructions and breakdown of files are located at the author's website, but after using Windoze for 18 years this doesn't help me. I need someone to walk me through it step by step on an Ubuntu/Xubuntu 12.04 setup.
How do I compile the .deb file for Gpass manually? I should be able to force this Linux application to work, along with creating my own custom launcher for it. With Ubuntu 11.10 it was possible to force the installation of the .deb file. With Ubuntu 12.04 that's been taken away from us as well. So please, can someone please clue me in as to how I can manually compile Gpass on my system? To me, as I'm sure to others as well, this is an indispensable little program that I'd like to use indefinitely. Thank you so much for your help ...
