Installing and Using Jason A. Donenfeld's password-store in Ubuntu

Since I spend most of my time and console or browser, might as well use a console-based password manager.

Generate your PGP key, answer all the questions and remember your email address (e.g. me@example.com).
$ gpg --gen-key

Make sure your keys (both public and private) are generated successfully.
$ gpg --list-keys

Install password store. I put this in my own $HOME/bin directory. Make sure this path in within your $PATH.

Initialize your password file with the email address you used to generate the  #PGP  key in step 0.
$ pass init me@example.com

Add a sample password
$ pass insert email/gmail

List your password
$ pass ls

Copy password to clipboard
$ pass -c email/gmail
