Start Enpass hidden

Recommended Posts

When configuring Enpass to automatically start on login, the Enpass main window is visible.

Is there any way to start Enpass just showing the tray icon without showing the main window?

I'm using Enpass 6.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.10 with KDE.

Same here, this is broken for ages and Enpass support confirmed working on it month ago. When there will be a fix available?

I just tried re-enabling the Open Automatically at System Startup option and now it works. Thanks!

The option changes the Startup entry to execute "/opt/enpass/Enpass -minimize".

In my previous post I only tested it in the way of quitting Enpass and manually starting it with the "-minimize" option which worked as already described. But I still got the issue after login.

After some time trying to find out what exactly causes the issue, I tried to remove the startup entry completely. But Enpass still started on login even if it should not as there is no startup entry.

Then I figured out that KDE by default saves the opened application in the session and restores them after login. But in that case, Enpass is started with "-session <some long session id>" instead of the "-minimize" option which obviously results in having the main window visible on start.

I've now configured KDE to always start a clean session on login without restoring previous opened applications and re-enabled the "Open Automatically at System Startup" option in Enpass. Now Enpass is starting with only the tray icon visible.

There is also an option to exclude specific application from session restoration, so excluding Enpass from the session restoration should also work. But in my case, I keep the session restoration completely disabled.
