[Linux] Make an Official Enpass AppImage/Snap/Flatpak

At this point Enpass works on "most" distributions, but not on all of them. Also, there is the need to add a repository and then install the application.

My request is to make Enpass available as a AppImage, snap or flatpak. This way the support for Linux can be improved!

I would suggest to use AppImage or Flatpak, since snap = canonical controlled.

Any updates here? I'm using Fedora Silverblue and it's sad to see no support for flatpak or Appimage.... All I can do is run enpass in toolbox via terminal and also I can't use it with browser outside of toolbox. Would be great to have flatpak pkg

I bought Enpass and found it to be an excellent tool, all I really missed was the support for Enpass like Bitwarden already has. Much simpler and more practical to install the tool through the snap package, which not only already makes it available in the store, but also compatible with several distros. The process of having to add the enpass repository, is not a seven-headed bug, but it could be simplified and put the tool in greater evidence, with a snap.

I too would like to have a flatpack version of enpass. 

That would be very handy, since the SteamDeck does support flatpack packages.
So enpass has the chance to be one of the first (commercial) Password Managers on a gaming console.

Hey @THB

Welcome to the forum!

We appreciate your suggestion of this feature. Please note that we already have a feature request for the same and aligned for implementation in the future. However, we’re not sure of a specific timeline when this will be implemented.

Thanks.

So I agree, that it make sense to combine these requests. @THB Can you maybe reference this thread there? I was not able to find it.

I'm yet another one who NEEDS enpass for my Steam Deck. Flatpak is the only sensible option.

I could install it through other means but it maybe deleted on system update.

Why isn't there already a flatpak version available? Or have I just not found it?

Also looking for an update, I just got my Steamdeck and am seeing how it is pretty much impossible to install anything on the SteamDeck if it isn't a flatpack. Any workaround / installs on the device will get wiped as soon as you update the OS.

hey so guys, steamdeck owner here you can install enpass from the terminal, run these commands:

sudo steamos-readonly disable
cd ~
mkdir apps
cd apps
sudo pacman -S --needed base-devel git
git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/enpass-bin.git
cd enpass-bin
makepkg -sri

Done!

 
PRO-TIP: If you got either Chrome or Firefox when running the sync and authorize restore, once you click open-xdg, CLOSE THE BROWSER and Enpass will continue the sync, unlike Windows, it will sit there waiting until you do...

You're very welcome!

Thanks, if this works it would be great. Is there any chance that I would screw up my system by following this? I have no Linux experiance and would probably easily screw up the system.
