I have Evernote running on Windows. I access the same on my android phone with ease. I want to use the same Windows-run Evernote to use on my Ubuntu, so that the notes fed on Windows Evernote can be used on this.

Could anyone suggest me some solution. My knowledge of ubuntu in almost nil.

You can use Evernote In Ubuntu With Everpad.

Everpad is an Evernote tool that integrates extremely well with Unity. It implements a Unity Lens which automatically searches Evernote notes through the Dash.1

To install, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the commands below:

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

Otherwise, you can install Wine, which allows you to run windows applications.

Everpad is not available for Ubuntu 13.10. – air-dex Oct 20 '13 at 23:35

Download the windows version of evernote, install with Wine. It runs beautifully. Fast and with no of the quirks from nevernote, nixnote and so on!

I started trying to use Everpad but ended up going this route. It is much better. – pthurmond Oct 2 '13 at 17:31
Works pretty well for me, too. Everpad doesn't show nested tags, which is pretty important for me. – lobati Feb 15 '14 at 3:03

The Linux clone is Nevernote or NixNote. If you use that you can log into Evernote.

As said by Mitch, you can use Everpad and I personally also use it.

As an alternative, you can also use the Evernote web interface at this address: This will work on all operating systemes.

I would just use the web based app. Adding everpad added a whole lot of packages to my system and then it doesn't work.

You can run evernote on ubuntu using WINE and it runs fine. Instructions on how to do it can be found on this post about installing evernote on ubuntu You can also use the web based app but really its not that good.

You could edit your question and describe the contents of the article in brief. That way if the link becomes unavailable your post will still be helpful. – hmayag May 6 '14 at 8:54

Evernote is included in the source packages evernote-mode account-plugin-evernote.

Can install with,

sudo apt-get install evernote-mode account-plugin-evernote

This solution is not working. – lmiguelvargasf Apr 21 at 15:49

You can run Evernote on Ubuntu 14.04, either using PlayOnLinux or Wine directly, everything works fine. Only installing updates is a little tricky which requires removing and installing a new version of evernote.
