Description

When you create a new database and save it on Ubuntu, you have to add the correct file-ending yourself when you choose the name, otherwise the file is saved without ending.

It should be added automatically, if not set by the user correctly

besides: how IS the correct ending for "KeePass 2 Database" files?

The fileextension is .kdbx (not .kbdx as I had first)

#2 Updated by Florian Geyer over 5 years ago

When i create a new database and save it there is a checkbox "Automatically select filename extension (.kdbx)".
If it is checked the extension is added correctly. I'm running KDE though.

Is the checkbox present on your system?
Can you check it and try again?

#3 Updated by Ruben Barkow over 5 years ago

No, it is not there.

I use Xubuntu

#4 Updated by Felix Geyer over 5 years ago

On Mac OS, Windows and KDE (and maybe more) Qt uses the native file dialogs which typically append the default file extension.

I don't see how we can use a customized Qt file dialog while still using the native ones when available.
So this feature would have to be implemented in Qt.

you could simply suggest a default name, that already has the correct extension in it

This is not the same as #308 (at least how I read it).

#308 is about using a default filename for new databases
#79 is about adding the .kdbx file extension if the user didn't add one (and the *.kdbx filter is selected)
