Password Backup Tool 1.1.0

Unread postby tman801 » Thu, 17 May 2018, 15:02

I am trying to install passwords in Ubuntu 16.04 with Password Backup Tool 1.1.0 and keep getting this Error.

Error: Couldn't get rows from the Chrome passwords database.

How do I correct this?

I have a folder where I keep my Bookmarks & Passwords when I update them. I went to one of my other computers & used the PM Password Backup Tool to make a new copy of passwords & transfered it to a usb drive. After installing it in my folder on the 16.04 & running PBT again all passwords installed without any problems. This only makes about the third time I have done this. Only this time it worked. :D

Perhaps you pointed to folder instead of backup file, because in this case PBT will try to find Chrome password database in it and import from there.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

Thanks for the reply JustOff. In my folder I have a Bookmark file and a Password file. Twice I opened the folder and clicked on the Password file and kept getting that error. The third time I again made a new file and transfered it via usb and it worked. I then spent about an hr going thru each one and removing ones I no longer use which came to about 20. I then exported all Passwords in 16.04 to folder and then removed all passwords and imported the new ones. Everything installed fine. What ever the glitch was seems to be fixed.

Thank You JustOff for making this extension.
