Hello Shrivats,

I did not use another binary, I used the source tarball
provided in the .nfo file.

I did some digging and now everything is clear, but I guess you'll
need to somehow embed the XML in the Slackbuild.

I tested this now, normally there is no
after installation and normal usage, but if
a user with write access to `/usr/lib/KeePass/Release/`
runs KeePass once (for instance root) then this file is being
created there (`/usr/lib/KeePass/Release/KeePass.config.xml`)
and it has the problematic PreferUserConfiguration set to false
and from this moment on KeePass will ignore all congiguration
changes made by other users.

Just give it a try and run KeePass as root once and then
check if `/usr/lib/KeePass/Release/KeePass.config.xml`
and if you're able save any configuration changes
as a normal user.

Best regards
