It would be nice to have the option to install via brew on Linux for non-privileged users or for installs to portable media.

Never mind, I'm an idiot and I did it wrong. It works fine :)

Nope, it fails after all because cask apparently doesn't work on linuxbrew anyway since it uses an osx dmg. So a linuxbrew version would still be nice to have after all.

I'll have a quick look, a source install should be possible too.

Will have a quick look at linux brew since I've never heard of it before.

Apparently it should be easy for me to make a Qt5 build for QtPass on Linuxbrew
Linuxbrew/brew#1 (comment)

Currently on osboxes.org ubuntu image installed Linuxbrew and did brew install pass qt5

Both went pretty cleanly . . although did install a hell of a lot of stuf (from source) in it's resident folder . . I would probably never use this myself on a linux (where I am a big fan of brew on macOS since it doesn't have a native package manager outside of the app store)

linuxbrew is usually a bit of an edge-case solution anyway. In my case it would be useful to have it in brew for Ubuntu 14.04LTS machines since it's not in the 14.04 repos.
