As title mentions, I want to start using it but have no idea where it is installed, I tried which todotxt-cli and whereis todotxt-cli but it says it doesn't recognise the package. Yet when I do apt-cache policy todotxt-cli, it tells me it's installed.

Missed out an important point, I installed it through the command line

sudo apt install todotxt-cli

The file list for todotxt-cli at http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/all/todotxt-cli/filelist includes /usr/bin/todo-txt, therefore you should run todo-txt in the terminal instead.


todotxt-cli contains the program /usr/bin/todo-txt so you can use the command


See here for the full list of the package.

  • +1 indeed, and to answer the question directly, which todo-txt returns /usr/bin/todo-txt so... that's where it is, unsurprisingly – Zanna Jul 2 '16 at 11:49

To obtain the todo.sh file you need to go to todotxt.com. Download the tar file and extract it to /directory/location/desired, /home/user would probably work best. Then follow the setup instructions found here Quick Start Guide.
