Due to heating issues I switched to a lighter version of Ubuntu i.e Lubuntu 12.10 from Ubuntu 12.04 . I was using Everpad in Ubuntu 12.04 without problems, but can't get it going on Lubuntu 12.10.

The issue is that after I authorize I am thrown back to Everpad Settings/Management console and instead of de-authorize I see authorize in the Authorization section of software. I've tried to re-install the s/w and tried deleting the .everpad directory in my home directory but it doesn't help.

I installed the software following the instructions in Everpad 2.0 released with new features

According to the link you provided, Everpad seems very customized for Unity. You could try asking at the ppa's Launchpad page or in the Lubuntu mailing list. – user25656 Jan 14 '13 at 11:00
According to the blog link, the ppa is ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa. But this Launchpad page also has ppa:nvbn-rm/everpad-usc. – user25656 Jan 15 '13 at 3:52
@vasa1, I was able to find a work-around for this persistent issue by installing gnome-shell but everytime I need to make changes to software or even sync I have to go choose gnome-de and make the changes. One can find details/screenshot of the issue on – Ankit Jan 15 '13 at 9:20

I managed to solve a similar issue by killing the everpad-provider process. Try the following command, then see if it works again:

killall everpad-provider
