Linux desktop adventures: Trying out Loxomo - 'Password Safe V3 compatible Password Vault'

I've been using Password Safe for a while, but my new workplace uses
Linux desktops (fedora 11), so I've found this compatible substitute,
as Password Safe is Windows-only.

But first, I had to install wxWidgets, which was easy enough:

sudo yum install wxWidgets

then another 9.5Mb installation later, created a launcher for the app,
pointed to the file, then voila.

The interface seems a bit limited, and you don't have options like
changing the encryption method or the rules it uses for password
generation but it's functional enough. I'll see how it goes in the
next few days.
