How to use Tomboy Notes in Writing a Research Report

Tomboy notes is available at http://projects.gnome.org/tomboy/download.html.

Installation

Ubuntu Linux

It is included in Ubuntu Linux by default. Unfortunately the package is still base on version 0.14.0. What you need is version 0.14.2 for better performance. For Jaunty you could download and install with gdebi Chris Irwin's ppa here https://launchpad.net/~chrisirwin/+archive/ppa . Or Nick B.'s https://launchpad.net/~futurepilot/+archive/ppa (PPA means Personal Package Archives)

If your daring, you may want to test the development 0.15+ version with Mario Manno's ppa here https://launchpad.net/~manno/+archive/ppa or xpd259's https://launchpad.net/~xpd259/+archive/ppa

For intrepid, the best thing I could find is Antons Rebguns ppa here https://launchpad.net/~arebgun/+archive/ppa which is version 0.14.1

Windows

For windows follow the installation here http://live.gnome.org/Tomboy/Installing/Windows. You'll need gtk-sharp. I used this on a vista http://ftp.novell.com/pub/mono/gtk-sharp/gtk-sharp-2.12.9-2.win32.msi .

Demo

Once you have it installed follow my youtube demo here:




The cited text in the demo came from the IRRODL journal.

Have fun
