  1. I did exactly what you said. What's more, this time it was not in a VM but in truly installed Linux Mint 19.1, although from there I can access all the files and folders of Windows, which is where the VM would also access the Enpass vault. It still did not work with freshly installed Enpass on my freshly installed LM 19.1, so I'll export my Keepass database and import into Enpass, as I did before. That is the only instance of Enpass I'll be using, so synching is not necessary. Many thanks for you time and patience.
  2. @xarekate There is my drive, with the folder Enpass, in which there is another folder called Enpass, and in the latter there are the folders Backups, Enpass, Vaults, .settings, .sync, and a file vault.enpassdbsync. I have set Enpass to sync to drive\Enpass\Enpass
  3. @xarekate Right now the installed Enpass app is empty. I have a folder with the Enpass vault data in, it was created by Enpass on another machine. In the empty Enpass I have set the Data Location (tab Advanced) to that folder. Furthermore, following your reply above, I have set the vault to sync to that folder too (tab Vaults/Primary/section Synchronize). When I click on the Sync Now button, I would expect the empty Enpass to fill up with the data from the sync folder, but that does not happen: Enpass remains empty.
  4. @xarekate Thanks for bringing the folder sync option to my attention. I did not see it because it is hidden in the cloud sync section. Anyway, I synched my folder, but Enpass still does not pick up the contents of the folder, even when, after synching, I exit and restart Enpass. Strange.
  5. @xarekate Thanks for jumping in How does folder sync work? If it is via Dropbox, OneDrive or any such external mechanism I am not interested. If not, please tell me.
  6. I got that worked out - I forgot to amend the title with [SOLVED], that's done now. What I am really after is by pointing Enpass in both device to the same folder to thus not have to sych. It seems that is not possible.
  7. I have Enpass installed on 2 OS'es that share the same Enpass folder, and settings in both Enpass versions are pointed to that folder for their data base. So one would expect that bothe versions can then access that data base and no synching is necessary. For some obscure reason they cannot/do not access that folder.
  8. Can anybody explain this last question to me please?
  9. BTW, there is something fundamental I do not understand. In the Advanced settings I have set the Data location for all 3 machines as the common folder with the vault, settings and backups that are in there. Still, Enpass in those machines does not pick up the vault and settings: why not?????
  10. That may be so, but I don't like using synchronisation, esp. where passwords are concerned. My point was not that folder sharing should be the system instead of synchronisation, but it should be a possibility in addition to synchronisation. Still, the devs have decided otherwise, so I'll have to make do with what there is, which in my case will probably mean manually copying the vault between there 3 machines.
  11. Thanks Zyghom. I won't check with the devs because I feel you are probably right, esp. since there is no indication in the settings to use folder sharing. In my opinion it is a pity that a simple solution like that is not offered.
  12. Many thanks for that. I have replied there with a clarification of what I want exactly. BTW, I did not receive an email from the system to alert me to your reply to the other subject.
  13. Thanks for your reply. In order to use the same database I have to synchronise the 2 machines via the cloud. Right? But that's not what I want because those 2 machines are on the same machine. Confused? Let me explain. I have Ubuntu in a virtual machine on my Windows host machine, and I also have Linux Mint in a VM on my Windows host machine. I have made a couple of Windows folders shareable with the VMs, and it is in 1 of those folders that the Enpass database is stored. The database was made with Ubuntu. Linux Mint has access to that folder too, as does Windows. So, is there a possibility that both Linux Mint Enpass and Windows Enpass have access to that database, without having to synchronise via the cloud? I do not want to use synchronisation, and having 1 common folder with 1 common database is 1 way to avoid that. But is it possible???
  14. Got it. I posted another question on the forum: having installed Enpass on another Linux machine but with access to the same folders as machine 1, how can I access the existing Enpass database folders? Perhaps you know the answer too.
