I heard that Tomboy is being removed in Ubuntu 12.04. I use it extensively and since it is connected to Ubuntu One I figured they will have a new way to sync notes. right? I'll be very very sad if I lose all my notes.

  • As far as I know you can import your Tomboy notes to Gnotes. – N.N. Nov 10 '11 at 8:03

  • try gnote. it imported all my tomboy notes automatically. – user57345 Apr 27 '12 at 17:11

I too am saddened by the loss of Tomboy from the default installation - but don't worry.

Our notes will remain intact - upgrading from 11.10 will still leave Tomboy installed. For new installs, you can simply download tomboy from the Software Centre.

Install via the software center

  • I heard about them dropping couchdb and someone said that had to do with our notes, so doesn't that mean we will lose all our notes? I use them quite a bit and would like to continue to do so. – Matthew Lynn Wallace Nov 23 '11 at 17:56
  • @MatthewLynnWallace: it would only be the syncing that they are changing. The notes are saved in ~/.local/share/tomboy – RolandiXor Nov 23 '11 at 20:20
  • yes, but will i be able to sync notes still is the question. Because I use the notes sync for work. – Matthew Lynn Wallace Nov 24 '11 at 4:06
  • @MatthewLynnWallace yes - they are working on a couch db replacement, and even if they don't, you can manually sync the folder. – RolandiXor Nov 24 '11 at 4:48
