I've installed nixnote (desktop client of Evernote for Linux) in my Ubuntu 12.04. But while starting, it throws exception.
Here is complete detail of the exception.

If the nixnote is installed through ppa:vincent-c/nevernote, then the default directory of installation files will be /usr/share/nixnote.

Depending upon the installed Java (32 bit or 64 bit) on the system i.e
if the system has 64 bit java then remove

/usr/share/nixnote/lib/qtjambi-linux32-4.5.2_01.jar and

and if running java is 32 bit then remove

/usr/share/nixnote/lib/qtjambi-linux64-4.5.2_01.jar and

Also make sure that the /tmp directory is not mounted with noexec
If it then use following command to remount /tmp with exec

#mount -o remount,exec /tmp

thats it.
