This is not a new concept: #sortition has been around since Athens.I find a lot of people worried about trusting 'normal people' to make big decisions. I would love to have a CA as one of the […]

      RT @douginamug #ExtinctionRebellion session @ #35c3 is FULL! One third of the people sitting on the floor 😂 Amazing to see a room full of hackers excited to join the cause. There's enthusiasm to help non-techy people switch to #signal, #mastodon & #nextcloud ⚡ 💻 🌐

      Unrelated, except for the error-prone: ISO1806 specifies a method of determining the mesh-breaking force of netting for fishing. This does not help in organizing your #Linux filesystem.

Auto-Type Keywords for KeepassX

Posted by Bob Jonkman on November 1st, 2016

KeepassX

I use KeePassX to keep track of passwords for web sites, server logins, and encrypted disks. And, at the touch of a keystroke, KeepassX can auto-type login names and passwords to those web sites, servers, and disks.

By default, KeepassX sends the sequence

{USERNAME}{TAB}{PASSWORD}{ENTER}

but if the Username field is blank then KeepassX just sends

{PASSWORD}{ENTER}

or if the Password field is blank then KeepassX only sends

{USERNAME}{ENTER}

But what other things can KeepassX send? A quick look at the AutoType.cpp source code reveals these additional keystrokes:

  • {tab}
  • {enter}
  • {up}
  • {down}
  • {left}
  • {right}
  • {insert} or {ins}
  • {delete} or {del}
  • {home}
  • {end}
  • {pgup}
  • {pgdown}
  • {backspace} or {bs} or {bksp}
  • {break}
  • {capslock}
  • {esc}
  • {help}
  • {numlock}
  • {ptrsc}
  • {scolllock}
  • {add} or {+}
  • {subtract}
  • {multiply}
  • {divide}
  • {^}
  • {%}
  • {~}
  • {(}
  • {)}
  • {{}
  • {}}
  • {f1}
  • {f2} .. {f16}
