This post is intended as a basic guide for getting Evernote running under WINE in Linux. If people want to share tips etc, maybe we can build it into something quite useful. Evernote (mostly) works fine for me under WINE and has the last few times I've tried, so I thought I'd share my setup, and if anyone has any further information to add that would be great.
*WINE can be a sensitive beast so maybe a list of known working combinations of "WINE version + Evernote version" may help some people? **NOT intended as a "please make a Linux version" thread, there's plenty of those.
What doesn't work for me: (I'm not a heavy Evernote user so probably missing a few things) -New Audio Note (might be fixable haven't tried) -New Webcam Note (might be fixable haven't tried) I'm currently using: Linux Distribution: Elementary OS 0.3 -Freya beta (Ubuntu 14.04) WINE version: 1.7.25
Evernote version: 188.8.131.5232 Not sure if the below WINE settings make a difference, don't have time to test maybe someone can confirm? WINE settings: -32bit prefix set because using a 64bit machine -set to Windows 7 in winecfg -running gdiplus riched20 and msxml3 as native libraries in winecfg (msxml3 installed via winetricks) -have corefonts package installed via winetricks (someone mentioned installing the Tahoma font in winetricks and using a font-smoothing hack but I haven't had any issues with fonts) Installing WINE 1.7: Here's how to install the latest version of WINE and winetricks using Ubuntu based distros: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks

***On a side note, I remember that for quite a while Google were packaging a very usable combo of WINE and Picassa for Windows into an installable deb/rpm/etc for Linux because they didn't want to create a native Linux version for whatever reasons.
