Everpad - An Evernote Client for Linux
Posted on December 10th, 2013
With how popularEvernotehas become over recent years, it is unfortunate that there isstillno official Evernote client for Linux. Sure, there is the Evernote web application that is always an option, but to have an actual desktop client would be nice. Luckily, there are 3rd party options available, and Everpad is the best one we have found. It is about as close as you can get to having all the Evernote features, and it works seamlessly in Ubuntu and Unity.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install everpad
Once installed, sign in with your Evernote account, and perform your initial sync. You should see a new icon appear in your system tray as well.
You should now be able to see the Everpad icon in the system tray. Clicking it brings up a dropdown showing your most recent notes, and some settings at the bottom.
If you click on "All Notes" at the top of the menu, you will open up the client where you can see all your notes/notebooks, and create/edit notes.
From here you can try creating a new note. You don't have all of the text editing capabilities as the full Evernote client, but most of the common word processing options are available to you.
Once you are done creating a note, you can add the appropriate tags if you wish, and save it. I have had issues with Everpad not syncing my edited/created notes to the Evernote servers, but logging out and logging back in has always worked for me.
Finally, Everpad is integrated into Unity to make searching for notes even easier. Simply bring up the dashboard and you can begin searching all you notes.
This makes searching notes incredibly easy, and provides an appealing interface to browse your notes with.
