Install KeePassXC on Manjaro

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install KeePassXC on Manjaro. KeePassXC is a cross-platform password manager that allows you to securely store and manage your passwords, usernames, and other sensitive data. It is an open-source fork of the popular KeePassX password manager, offering additional features and improvements. KeePassXC uses industry-standard encryption algorithms to protect your data, ensuring that your information remains safe from prying eyes.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the KeePassXC password manager on a Manjaro Linux.


  • A server or desktop running one of the following operating systems: Manjaro, and other Arch-based distributions.
  • Basic familiarity with the command line interface (CLI).
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A stable internet connection is crucial for downloading and installing packages. Verify your connection before proceeding.
  • Access to a Manjaro Linux system with a non-root sudo user or root user.

Step 1. Update Your System.

Before diving into the installation process, ensure your Manjaro system is ready. Start by updating your system to the latest version to avoid any compatibility issues. Open your terminal and execute:

Step 2. Installing KeePassXC on Manjaro.

  • Installing KeePassXC from Official Repositories

sudo pacman -S yay

Once the AUR helper is installed, search for the KeePassXC package using the following command:

sudo pacman -S snapd

Enable the Snap systemd unit:

sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

Install KeePassXC using Snap:

sudo snap install keepassxc

After the installation is complete, you can launch KeePassXC from your application menu or by running the following command in the terminal:

sudo snap install keepassxc
