I tried to create a tomboy quicklist for Unity by copying the tomboy.desktop using the guide here What Custom Launchers and Unity Quicklists are available?
using the man page for Tomboy it says you can open tomboy using tomboy --open-note [title/url]
This works well when the application is closed. But once it has been opened, the command just display the window with the list of notes. When the command is run from the terminal it says [ERROR 14:33:43.474] Tomboy is already running. Exiting...
Zim Desktop Wiki on the hand recognised if the application is running and switched to that notebook.
With Tomboy I haven't been able too. I was hoping someone would know of a solution.
