I love Password Agent and use it on Windows and also use the Android version. Since I have my database on dropbox the Android read only serves my purpose very well.
I recently purchased a Chromebook that runs most Android apps but Password Agent refuses to run on it! (Acer R14)

Thus far I have been using Keepass2Android but it is really inconvenient to maintain two data files!

Any input on this problem? Thanks

I suspect the issue may be that PA can be run on ARM processors, that most Android devices use. It does not run on Intel processors.

Just to correct my original post, my Chromebook is an Acer R13 having a MediaTek MT8173C Processor which is known to run Android Apps, and I regularly run Android apps on it... except that PA will not run! That is why I'm a little disappointed. Thanks, and sorry for the confusion.

I checked more background info about the tool I use to compile PA for Android and theoretically compiled apps should also work on Chromebook (even on ones that use Intel CPU as these use emulator to run ARM apps, but with some issues).
When I update the Android app then it will be compiled with new version of compiler, perhaps that helps some way to run it on Chromebook.
