  1. Yeah, my biggest gripe right now with Evernote is the fact that they treat platforms very differently. For example, in the Windows client (I'm running through WINE), the reminders have yet to appear so my only option is to use the Android client (buggy beta) or Web app to manage them. Kind of stupid IMHO. I suggested elsewhere that Evernote should start focusing more on building the offline web application. However, as there's still a lot of missing functionality, I'll bet it'll be a long time before we see it. With regards to the audio notes in Firefox, install VLC and the VLC broswer plugin. It MIGHT work for you. The issue is with Android though as they record in AMR. If Android used a different codec it would be better supported in the browser. As a workaround, I've started using a separate application to record audio (in WAV) which, when I am done recording, I share with evernote. For what it's worth, I'm a paying customer despite not having my platform (Ubuntu Linux) supported.
  2. Getting back on topic.... So the curent evernote client options for Linux are: Everpad - It's OK if you have a few notes I guess but as already mentioned, this just dumps all of your notes into one big mess. No stacking, no filtering by notebooks. On the positive side, there's a unity Lens for Ubuntu users. Nixnote (formerly Nevernote) - Of the 2 native clients, this is the best choice. It's pretty much has all the featues and even allows you to edit the HTML. However, my experience is that this thing is VERY slow. Also, the GUI is simply ugly. If there are any UX designers out there using Linux, please donate some time to help out with this. There is a new v2 alpha release which does have an improved GUI but I couldn't get it to sync my account. I always keep an eye on this app but so far, it hasn't been up to par with the windows client. Windows client running through WINE - In my view, this is the best way to use Evernote in Linux. If you need help installing in WINE there's a lot of help tutorials on this - just google it. If you are a complete noob to WINE and want the simplest way to install it, I would recommend purchasing the comercial version of WINE called "Crossover". It's what I use. The biggest downside in my view is that it occasionally crashes on start. If this is the case, you have to kill the wine process and restart the application. One other downside (for people not using MS Office) is that it doesn't seem to integrate with LibreOffice - this means that if you have a word doc in a note and click it, LO or whatever you are using for doc/x files will not open (same for excel and powerpoint). In Crossover, I just installed MS Office along with Evernote. EDIT: there was talk in the past about Evernote releasing an offline webapp. It would be great to see Evernote release a packaged app for Chrome. I think this could then replace alll of the above Update: Since version 4.6.6.xxx was released, I have had MAJOR issues getting Evernote to run in WINE More often than not, it crashes at start. Previously, this was only occasionnal behaviour. I really wish Evernote would just expand the Web client to allow offline editing, then we wouldn't be discussing any of this. UPDATE 2: the kind folks at codeweavers suggested I run the application in a separate bottle ( I had Evernote installed in my Office 2007 bottle). After doing this it's working again.
  3. Point 1 - the topic of this thread is "Is there an Evernote for Linux'. NOT "Is there an official version of Evernote for Linux". The answer to this is YES. Point 2 - the last few points were useful to people looking into using evernote in Linux as they discuss what's available (including pros and cons). Stop lurking around and bugging people. This is the second thread I've seen you being rude for no reason. It's great that you answer questions about things you know about Evernote for Mac and Windows but please don't answer when you can't provide something contrstructive or useful. This thread is useful for people wanting to use Evernote on Linux. Your comments are not.
  4. Just to be clear, Linux users have already made their desires known to Evernote; the lengthy (and aging) topic here being one bit of evidence.Additionally, "as a group of [open source] computer users", if you don't like the existing third party apps, please feel free to create another one, using EN's API. Just for your info, not all Linux users are developers. There are many people who use Linux for a multitude of reasons. Quit making assumptions. My post orginally was to just say that they can use WINE to run Evernote (it works pretty well). I was trying to help other users unlike yourself with your obvious bias against Linux users. Open Surce Users != Developer.
  5. I've been using the Windows client on Ubuntu using Crossover (a commercial version of WINE) for the past few years. With the exception of a few hiccups (occasional crashes on start) it's been working very well for me. Not sure what all the fuss here is about For me, NixNote (aka Nevernote) has some serious performance issues. I've tried using it many times but just revert back to running the windows client (which is more stable).
