Is there a note taking software that supports image insertion? And best with font changing of area texts. I use tomboy before, that has no image support.

repos* :D. I've tried tomboy, by the way, and, when I have to have an image in mind, I just post its path. – hakermania Jul 10 '12 at 9:58

I use Nixnote and it supports images.

Nixnote (formerly Nevernote) is an open source clone of Evernote.

Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and importantly for you the web. For this solution you must use the Evernote (clipper) extension for Mozilla Firefox. (Available in Firefox Add-ons)


When you browse the internet using Firefox and you come across a website that you want to keep for review (text and Pictures), the Evernote clipper will allow you to this.

When you install NixNote on Ubuntu desktop you can set it up to automatically synchronize with your Evernote note book. The result will be that all your websites that you want to review will be in the NixNote desktop software.

Here's the PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vincent-c/nevernote
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nixnote

What about cherry-tree.. ?? seems pretty complete to me.

Supports images and also syntax highlights (for developers)... cross-platform & portable (easy move the data between different machines/os ex:using dropbox)
