passwordgorilla not working on 18.04

Bob
I just upgraded Ubuntu to 18.04 and now passwordgorilla does not work.  Doing a
search I find a problem that states TCL needs to be installed for 18.04.

bob@Saturn:~$ sudo apt install tcl
[sudo] password for bob:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree      
Reading state information... Done
tcl is already the newest version (8.6.0+9).
tcl set to manually installed.
The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
  fonts-wqy-microhei
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
bob@Saturn:~$

Shows TCL is already installed.

Any suggestions on what to do next?

How are you installing passwordgorilla?

What error are you getting?  Run it from the command line if necessary to see errors.

I installed passwordgorilla a few years ago from the software center.

It has been working until I upgraded from Ubuntu 17.10 to 18.04.

bob@Saturn:~$ password-gorilla

bob@Saturn:~$ tclsh

Command 'tclsh' not found, but can be installed with:

sudo apt install tcl

It looks like the patch for this bug has been fixed.

The only patch in that bug report is:

As a workaround, you can modify the file:
/usr/share/password-gorilla/gorilla.tcl

        xec tclsh8.5 "$0" ${1+"$@"}
to
        exec tclsh "$0" ${1+"$@"}
to patch the issue.

The file /usr/share/password-gorilla/gorilla.tcl is correct on my system.


The problem I have has a different error message.

        /usr/share/password-gorilla/gorilla.tcl: 3: exec: tclsh: not found

Where should tclsh be found?

similar issue though ...

$ ls -l /usr/bin/tclsh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Nov 20  2015 /usr/bin/tclsh -> tclsh8.6
$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/tclsh
tcl: /usr/bin/tclsh
$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/tclsh8.6
tcl8.6: /usr/bin/tclsh8.6

so tclsh is typically a symlink to the versioned tclsh command...

did you take a look at pasaffe btw ? it is similar to passwordgorilla
but does not use an ancient programming language and is well integrated
in ubuntu ...

I created a simlink and now password gorilla is working.

I assume that the upgrade to 18.04 deleted the link and did not recreate it
later.

I will look at pasaffe.  The main reason I use password gorilla is because it
runs on multiple operating systems.

Thank you very much.

There's also Revelation, which I've been using for several years
without problems. I think it's Linux only though.

Additionally, Lastpass that I've used for a few years that works on
Linux, Windows, OSx, IOS and Android and does a very good job.

It will also generate and store random string passwords, so everything
you need to log into can have a completely random password.

I know that it's not a specialist password manager but something else
I've started using lately to keep sensitive information private is
encryptpad.

It works like notepad or gedit or xed except that a passcode is used to
save it encrypted. Been using it for a few weeks now it seems to be OK.
