Evernote is a cool site for capturing note, tagging it and retrieving it from everywhere. The Web application is nice but I was wondering if anyone knows about a standalone version such as for Windows, Android,... but for Ubuntu ?

Thanks !

Odd that this is the accepted answer as all it details is how to avoid using Evernote. I use Nevernote myself and it's flawless - in many ways far superior to the actual Windows client of Evernote itself. Horses for courses, I suppose. Evernote is cross-client and supports Android, which for me is essential. –  Scaine Dec 10 '10 at 12:04

Not an official one, but I've had success with the unofficial client NeverNote

+1 Thanks, didn't know about this. Works nicely on 10.04 –  Matti Pastell Dec 10 '10 at 8:59

On Linux, you can use NixNote (previously Nevernote), an unofficial Evernote client written in Java but if you want something lightweight, you should try Everpad, a new Evernote client that integrates nicely with Unity.

It supports online sync, notes, tags, notebooks, file attachments (remember there's a 60 MB monthly limit) and places.

Installation:

To install Everpad all you need to do is run the following commands in terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install everpad

Once installed all you need to do is search for ‘Everpad’ in the Unity Dash and then run the Everpad application. You will then see the app indicator appear on your panel. Once it does, click on it and select “Settings & Management” then “Authorise” to configure Everpad with your Evernote account.

To create a new note, simply click on the Everpad app indicator and select “Create Note” or click on an existing note to edit it.

I don't think there's a native client :-(

So, your best bet might be to run it in wine. e.g.: http://abbysays.wordpress.com/2008/05/24/how-to-install-evernote-30-on-ubuntu/

Not really, no. You might consider running the web app in Prism, which is quite a nice bit of kit that allows you to run a web app in a standalone window/browser. Or you can use Wine, which works fairly well with Evernote.

+1 for Tomboy/Dropbox.

Add Gnome-do and it's extremely useful.

You can try a combination of Dropbox for folder sync in multiple computers, and Tomboy for note-taking.

Setup Dropbox first, then setup Tomboy's folder within Dropbox's folder. Do this in every computer you use.

Also, both can be used in multiple platforms.

Ubuntu One syncs Tomboy notes automatically. –  Li Lo Aug 13 '10 at 16:47

Tomboy and UbuntuOne has worked well for me.

There is also emacs-evernote-mode, that let's you edit and create notes in Emacs using either XHTML or TEXT mode. The cool part is that you can post a region from any Buffer as a note with a single command M-x evernote-post-region. I realize this is probably appealing only for Emacs users (such as myself).
