I have a bug with Tomboy Notes application on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Whenever I boot my system, clicking the original panel, the icon doubles. And every word that I type and delete in the search bar, the icon also doubles.

Another problem, when you click to create new note it appears an error of "Broken" pipe. When I click the icon again, I see that the note was created empty, with current date and time.

Look at the video.

  • Are you using unity-lens-tomboy, which lets you search Tomboy notes from the Dash? That worked fine in 13.10, but in 14.04 it seems broken and caused this same problem on my system. – Fern Moss May 8 '14 at 0:23
  • It's enabled, but I can't find my notes by the Dash. Anyway, I have disabled for testing. – André Marinho May 8 '14 at 15:16
  • Yeah, for me it didn't show notes and also had that bad side effect. I had to remove the package to get prevent the duplication (though of course now I can't search for the notes in the dash). – Fern Moss May 8 '14 at 17:45
  • @AndréMarinho, how did you disabled the Tomboy Dash Plugin? – sergej May 29 '14 at 18:49
  • @sergej I selected the Application lens on the Dash. There will show all the Dash Plugins. Right click on the Tomboy plugin and select Disable. – André Marinho May 29 '14 at 19:50

The duplication of Tomboy indicator icons is a bug caused by unity-tomboy-lens, which is a lens that allowed for searching the contents of Tomboy notes via the Dash in 13.04. There were some issues in 13.10, but overall it still worked; in 14.04, however, it totally ceased to display the notes in the dash, plus caused this bug.

Unfortunately, the developer seems to have stopped using Unity, so the lens will doubtfully be updated (see this bug report).

  • I have disabled the Tomboy Dash Plugin and the icon stopped replicating. Thanks! – André Marinho May 9 '14 at 1:23
