This is still rather a mystery to me. Continuing to look into
the issue. For now, the latest Java client will at least allow you
to select the password in the field and copy it manually from there
with Ctrl-C/Command-C/whatever it is your OS uses.
I have the same problem (Ubuntu 14.04, Java-Version of
The ONLY possible way to copy the pw ist hitting crtl+c. The app

Using the latest released version on FreeBSD and Linux with Java 1.8 I can confirm that the app does not crash. It just closes upon hitting Enter. But the password is not copied to the clipdboard. I circumvent this by using the standard X procedure (select using mouse, pasting using middle mouse button).
However I find it very inconvenient that the standard behaviour for the app is to close after selecting a password via Enter. When running a password app on a desktop I have usually need for it several times a day or in a row.
Would it be acceptable to just clear the site information from the app but leave the app open until the user closes it? If yes then I'll have a look at the source and try to write a patch.
Many thanks for this application by the way. It rocks! :-)
I want to second Jens' request to keep the appl open when copying a pwd.
To remove the site info is one thing, but the user should not have to re-start the program for every site login. Could the calculator be left open until user shuts it down? Maybe it could automatically switch to the master pwd prompt after a given idle period. I don't enjoy re-typing a pwd over and over, but let's at least eliminate program re-start.
The primary reason the app shuts itself down is to restore focus to the previously open application. I certainly don't mind keeping the app open. Perhaps there is even an alternative way to instruct the WM to switch focus from within Java.
