Wunderlist is a todo list, and apparently they now have Linux support. How do I install it?

There are two ways of doing this.

You can install Wunderlist via the Ubuntu Software Center. Open the Ubuntu Software Center, then search for Wunderlist - you can then install it from there. However, at time of writing, this will not work in 11.10, due to some incompatibility issues.

However, you can try the manual way outlined below.

First, download Wunderlist from their website.

Now, you need to unpack the .tgz that it comes in - run the following:

tar xvzf ./Downloads/wunderlist*.tgz

Then you need to open the Wunderlist file - open up Nautilus (or your file browser of choice) and navigate to the ~/Wunderlist-<version number> folder. In there you'll find a file named Wunderlist - double click it, and Wunderlist will open up - login and you're ready to go.

When I do this I get a window with license information and when I click run it crashes. I can only start the app by typing "sudo ./Wunderlist" I have Wunderlist-1.2.4 if that helps. –  Balthazar Sep 22 '11 at 2:10

@Balthazar You should report that as a bug here –  jrg Sep 22 '11 at 12:20

The solution to make it work with 11.10 is here: http://support.wunderlist.com/customer/portal/questions/63885-ubuntu-11-1-installation-?new=63885

And it works, indeed!

Instructions for Ubuntu 12.04 and 11.10 are here http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/how-to-install-wunderlist-in-ubuntu.html

Edit Nov 2012: Still no luck but you may use Fogger to get Wunderlist, web version, as a webapp in Ubuntu. Just install Fogger via Software Center, open Dash, enter 'Fogger' in it, 'create new' and follow the instructions. Courtesy of OMG Ubuntu! http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/07/fogger-brings-wunderlist-back-to-the-ubuntu-desktop Please note that in 12.10 you don't have to add any PPA's. Just follow my instructions above.

I've just installed Wunderlist as per instructions I linked to but it simply won't start. I get the welcome window (Wunderlist Installer) with Cancel and Run buttons. I press Run and it won't start. It's visible in Dash (program icon). Launching either from dash or by terminal command wunderlist or even by cd /opt/Wunderlist-1.2.4 and then Wunderlist returns 'Wunderlist: command not found' error. Any hints? –  Bucic May 27 '12 at 19:32
