  1. When I was using EN in Windows, I always stuck to an older version, for a variety of reasons. Now that I'm on Linux, that's not an option for me. The Beta version just came out so there IS no older version. Why they would remove this function is a real head-scratcher.
  2. I never experimented with Wine, myself. I'm not familiar with it and I've heard mixed things about how Evernote works that way so I never bothered. I did try a few of the other note applications, but I'm pretty much married to Evernotes way of doing things so I ended up ditching them all. Really hope the official client is upon us soon so everyone can get the satisfaction. My comrades are still suffering out there in the cold! Or something.
  3. "So did I get it right, you have the official Evernote Linux beta client? Sexy! Tell us, how is it? Share your bless with us, so we can keep up our mood down here in the waiting hall." Yep, I got it. Nick, one of the administrators (I think) sent me an invite and bam! There it was. Wish I could somehow pass the invite along to you long suffering souls, but I'm not sure how the hell that work. Anyway, I'm loving the client. I'd been using the web version for a year and suffering its limitations. Before that, I'd been using a very old version of Evernote on a Windows machine. I just preferred the old client to the new, streamlined versions. Compared to that old version I used to use (can't remember the V number,) this Beta for Linux seems super slim. Not much to it, really. But I can drag and drop, batch manage notes, open notes in a new window, etc. so I'm pretty happy with it. I've never been a very advanced Evernote user. My needs are pretty straightforward. Notes, notebooks, stacks... This beta does everything I need it to so far. Here's hoping you all get brought into the party sooner than later.
  4. I waited and waited and waited for the Beta version of the new program and had just about given up when finally it came my way. Within three minutes of receiving it, I had the EN client set up and working fine on my Linux Mint machine. I'm not sure why some Beta program users are getting it and some are not. It seems like they've got to be near ready for the official roll out. Been a year since the announcement. Anyway, hope you all get satisfaction soon. I was bitching about it daily until last week when the client finally came my way.
  5. Aaaaany day now, I tell myself. I literally check a couple times a day, peeking into the EN blog, doing news searches, etc. Nothing, nothing and nothing. I've been pondering a move to something like Simplenote, but I just KNOW that as soon as I get it set up, the EN client will launch. Maybe I should do it for that reason alone.
  6. The year is coming to a close. Will we get Linux for Evernote this Christmas? I'm sure we've all been real good this year...
  7. Man. This problem went away for me after a while without explanation. I'm pretty sure nothing I did is what fixed it. Must have been an update on either the EN or browser end. Who knows. Mysterious stuff. Hope you get it sorted.
  8. Interesting. I'll give that a go the next time it happens. Right now, it's working for me. This morning, it didn't. Goofy.
  9. Well, I could understand if it simply failed to work in Vivaldi, but for many years, it worked just fine. We're offered this vague message about our browser configuration, but no hints at all about what part of that configuration might be contributing to the issue. It's just odd. Exactly this. Nobody's really crying about this problem, but it's damn strange, considering EN web has worked for years without issue and suddenly there's this ominous warning about browser configurations. For me, this thread was helpful just in letting me know that it wasn't my problem alone. I'm inclined to wait it out, but it's always good to hear what experiences others are having.
  10. Ah, shoot. Sorry to hear that. Wish we had some explanation, anyway.
  11. For what it's worth, today I popped open my browser (Vivaldi) and Evernote web was working fine. I have no idea what fixed it. There have been no Vivaldi updates, so I suppose it must have been on the EN end of things. Whatever. Happy to have it back again, but still waiting for the Linux client.
  12. But if you shut down the browser and start it back up, does it still work? Mine doesn't survive a restart.
  13. So, that implies that it's a browser thing, right? Makes me think I should be checking for Vivaldi updates. Something in Evernote's latest release must have broken it for certain browsers. Evernote goes years without giving me any grief, but I use it so much, that any grief at all is going to be life impacting. Glad you got yours sorted, anyway.
  14. The plot thickens. Annoying problem. I've been keeping my browser open after a reboot, but obviously that won't work forever. Very mysterious issue, this.
  15. Yeah, and the other platform updates have been rolled out so it feels like it could be any day. Can't wait.
  16. I check just about every day to see if the client for Linux is out yet. I love Evernote, but I've started looking at some of the alternatives lately. A Linux client would definitely keep me here. I really have no desire to learn a new program and go through the tedious work of importing all my notes. I wish we had some kind of time frame on this. It would be a real kick in the shorts if they abandoned the idea.
  17. Reboot doesn't fix it? It does mine, but only for one browser session. I'm using Vivaldi as a browser. I don't have this problem in Firefox.
  18. I wonder if your problem is related to an issue some of us others are having. In our case, we get a message vaguely explaining that EN can't be opened due to unspecified browser settings.
  19. Would love to know if anyone got this sorted out. This is a problem for me on Vivaldi, as well. Reboot does the trick, but as soon as I close and reopen the browser, I'm blocked again. At this point I don't know if the problem is the newest version of Evernote or Vivaldi.
  20. Hey, that's a really great review of Joplin. Best I've seen. The program seems to have a dedicated group of followers growing by the day. Could be the future of note taking, who knows? My search has ended – the EN Web's beta interface solves just about all of the problems I was having using it on Linux – but definitely keeping this review on hand in case my search for an alternative resumes somewhere down the road. Good stuff. Thanks for taking the time to put all that together.
  21. This has been a fun and insightful thread. I accidentally stumbled into it while searching for something Linux related. Don't even remember what it was at this point.
  22. I just jumped over to Linux Mint from Windows and the lack of Evernote client is my only real discomfort in making the adjustment. At the same time, using Evernote Web has been easier than I expected it to be and then new Beta version even more so. I'm actually fairly content with using the web version now. Before I came to that conclusion, I tried Nixnote2. I thought the interface was pretty good and enough like the Evernote Windows Client to be familiar. But for me, it was buggy as hell, to the point where I couldn't WAIT to uninstall the thing. So close and yet so far. I looked at Tusk, but it doesn't seem to offer anything that you can't get in the web client already. I'm starting to feel like I can let it go and settle in with Evernote Web and stop searching for some magical solution. I simply keep it open in a tab at all times and use it as needed. I've also experimented with opening ENWeb in its own window and using it that way. Kind of FEELS like an Evernote client that way. I slide it over to my second monitor to keep it separated from the riff raff. Good enough for me. I read a few articles proposing that us Linux users should just think about replacing Evernote with some other note application. That's lunacy, I say! Madness!
  23. Yeah, I always stick with classic when I can. In this case, if it easily fixes a bug, I'll make the upgrade. Hey, thanks again for the help.
  24. I have not tried that, so thank you for this tip. I'll try it right away and see if it makes a difference. What a nice easy fix THAT would be. The text is gone for good once it vanishes. It doesn't appear at all on my other devices. But if I enter text in EN on my phone, for instance, it will stick across all platforms. It's only in the web version where the problem exists. I'll try that beta and see if there's any difference. Thanks again. Update: Well, huh. Text seems to stick in the Beta version. That was ridiculously simple. Good call, D-in-D.
