      RT @arunisaac IISc is asking students' for Aadhaar again. This time, it is for NAD (National Academic Depository) registration. Guess what, they have shared a public spreadsheet with 4000 students' details (name, dept, gender, caste/category, etc.), with a blank column for Aadhaar. They expect people to enter their Aadhaar IDs in this public spreadsheet! Such […]

      I've been a SysAdmin for about 30 years, I've installed OSes from the days when you had to format a hard drive with debug G=C800:5, I've installed, destroyed, repaired and recovered Netware, Windows and Linux systems. But flashing a phone or tablet scares the willies out of me.

      Hi @EineBiene: The groups I created are all at http://sn.jonkman.ca/groups/ There are currently no plans to move them; my https://gs.jonkman.ca/ instance is too flakey right now -- I can't subscribe to my own groups, for example. Unfortunately, I believe there are also other !GNUsocial users who cannot subscribe to groups on sn.jonkman.ca, so something does […]

      Lovely eggs, abominable website. #ProTip: Don't use horizontal scrolling.

      bobjonkman favorited something by pabo: @bobjonkman Couldn't agree more with @lnxw48a1 . All this site has to do is share my resume and any other data I provided that might interest potential employers.Instead, it's hiding increasingly more info behind an authentication wall.[1]And while that sounds bad and weird, but does have some merit (deny anonymous […]

Auto-Type Keywords for KeepassX

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 1st November 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}

KeepassX is written by Felix Geyer and Florian Geyer with reporter Tarquin Winot, and is released under the GNU head logoGNU General Public License.
