Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and search able at anytime, from anywhere. With the new version of Evernote (still in beta) not only can one download the software but can also work online and later synchronize Of all the available notes solution available in the market, Evernote is one of the most desired software application for taking down notes, pictures, videos, etc. But the bad news for Linux/Ubuntu users is that Evernote installable is only available in Windows XP/Vista and Mac. There is no Linux support.

But using wine I was easily able to install Evernote on my Ubuntu. The steps are as follows:

If you do not have wine installed, you can get it with the following command:

> sudo apt-get install wine

Download the Windows installation executable of Evernote from the Evernote site (http://evernote.com/about/download/)

After wine is install, type the following command:

> wine location where the executable is downloaded

For example, in mine case:

> wine /home/abby/apps/Evernote_3.0.0.594.exe

The installation process starts which is similar similar to Windows.

Complete the installation steps and you will have Evernote installed on your Ubuntu. There shall be a icon to start Evernote on the desktop too after installation is complete.

Since Evernote is in Beta, to get the invitation one need to give there  email id at this link (http://www.evernote.com/about/prereg/)and they shall send you the invitation to register. I have 18 invitations remaining. In case you need one, do let me know.

Now no reason to be sad since your favourite Evernote works with your favourite Ubuntu :-)

    I did that about a month ago and it has worked without issues. Now, however, I tried to install the upgrade to 3.0.592 beta and I got an Installshield error message saying that I needed either Windows Vista or XP. I think I will uninstall the earlier version and reisntall the latest – unless someone has another idea.

  2. A Friend says:

    Be sure Wine is configured as Windows XP (from the Wine applications menu) – new installs may default to Windows 2000 mode, which won’t permit the installation. Changing this setting let Evernote install just fine. Crashes when trying to create an ink note, though, which is a bummer.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the tutorial. I got Evernote installed just fine. But I have a question. It has a lot of black boxes in the interface. I’ve tried loading new video drivers but they don’t help. Is there a setting that might improve the appearance?

    Thanks for the excellent instructions! I plan on using Evernote 2.2 on an openSUSE 11.1 install. I am doing an experiment and trying to see if I can work an entire week on Linux. Evernote is critical to my day to day business operations (I don’t use the advanced features) and I would be lost without it.

    I tried to install Evernote 3.5 in Wine, but it didn’t work. Something about some component to be downloaded that couldn’t be verified. Maybe .net related. Version 3.1 installed OK, though.

  22. John C says:

    I have just installed on Ubuntu 9.10
    Installed Wine 1.0.1 from Synaptic Package Manager.
    Downloaded Evernote_3.1.0.1225.exe
    Moved the .exe to a userx\apps folder then ran
    “wine Evernote_3.1.0.1225.exe” installed the program without a problem.
    A shortcut is placed on your desktop.
    I got “connection timeout” a couple of times when I tried to login then it but then it logged in normally and slowly downloaded by Notebooks from my account

    Like Helge I tried Evernote 3.5. This required .net 3.5 which does not work with the stable version of wine.

  25. obform says:

    Under Ubuntu 9.10 I failed with Evernote 3.5, read comments here, and installed 3.1 under Wine. During the install my terminal window never came to rest (returned to a prompt), but the Evernote icon appeared in the top panel, and now that I have rebooted it seems to work. I’m new to Evernote, live in Ubuntu most of the time, and look forward to learning what Evernote will do for me. Can anyone tell me whether a program like this under Wine can run updates from its own update mechanism the way it would under Windows? Thanks…

  26. I am very fond of the Evernote idea, and am using it on my BlackBerry
    Bold, Windows Vista machine, Windows XP at office, and on my Ubuntu
    (that latest remix netbook release) EEE when traveling; also I’m
    accessing my evernote account using google chrome, firefox and IE, but
    unfortunately the online interface is very buggy and a little slow to
    work with.

    Running Evernote on top of Ubuntu/Wine does not work for me. Major
    features are not working correctly: clipping and the ability to drag
    and drop notes. I usually fall back to the same solution I use for my
    BlackBerry, since that Evernote client is really crap: use my gmail to
    create notes, sort it out later (yeah, that’ s really gtd :) ) or
    post-edit (categorise etc) using the web-interface. It’s working, but
    not to my full convenience…

  27. Hi there.

    I got an error message right at the beginning, I typed

    it starts downloading the files and after a message displays as follows:

    and I click okay and the same message just keeps re-appearing.

    Help Please and Thank You.

  32. Nicholas Sterling says:

    I’ve always liked Evernote but it never really came close to working for me under Wine. I think the Evernote folks must think they have Linux covered with the web interface, but I don’t feel that way. I’m glad they have the web interface so that I can get to it on systems where I don’t have Evernote installed, but it is way clunkier than having a real client. I really wish they would either do a Linux client or do a Java (or any other JVM language, like Scala) client.

  33. Dale L. says:

    Have you tried this version for linux?
    http://www.nevernote.org

  34. Adam says:

    Agree w/ Nicholas. As a long time linux user, it really sucks not to have a native linux client available to us. They support just about every thing out there (mobile or desktop) except a main desktop linux os(yes i know they support android). Oh well, someday…maybe..

  35. Senseq says:

    Thank you Lord Abhi – just what I was looking for! Unfortunately, this didn’t work for me :(
    I’m using Ubuntu 10.04, and downloaded the current evernote – 3.5.5.2672

    When I try to install evernote, I get the following error:

    fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0
    fixme:reg:GetNativeSystemInfo (0x33f318) using GetSystemInfo()
    install the Windows version of Mono to run .NET executables

    Any idea how to resolve this? Thanks a lot.

  36. It’s not working for me like that with evernote 3.5 (+ lucid).

    It’s really a pain in the bumbumbum… :@

  37. Nicholas Sterling says:

    OK, I have NeverNote working, and so far it looks good. There was a problem with the nevernote.sh file; after I figured out what was wrong, I went to tell the NeverNote folks, and found that it was already on their forum:

    http://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/nevernote/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=24

    Apparently they haven’t gotten around to fixing it yet, but I’m sure they will soon.

    Basically you just have to replace
    NN_CLASSPATH=$NN_CLASSPATH:$NEVERNOTE/commons-lang-2.4.jar
    with
    NN_CLASSPATH=$NN_CLASSPATH:$NEVERNOTE/lib/commons-lang-2.4.jar
    (that is, add /lib).

    You also have to download Qt Jambi and modify some environment variables in nevernote.sh. The setup has some rough edges, but it’s doable. I am running 64-bit Ubuntu; I downloaded Qt Jambi 4.5.2_01 from this page:
    http://qt.nokia.com/downloads
    and extracted it into /opt, creating qtjambi-linux64-lgpl-4.5.2_01, and then made qtjambi a symlink to that (ln -s qtjambi* qtjambi).

    Then I downloaded NeverNote and extracted it into /opt. I renamed the directory to NeverNote (because that’s what the launcher script expects, although you could just change the script). In that directory is nevernote.sh; you have to add /lib as mentioned above, and modify the “location variables” — mine look like this:

    NEVERNOTE=/opt/NeverNote
    JAMBI_LOCATION=/opt/qtjambi
    JAMBI_VERSION=4.5.2_01
    JAMBI_PLATFORM=linux64-gcc
    JAVA_LIB_DIR=/usr/share/java

    If you use 32-bit Ubuntu, you should of course download the 32-bit Qt Jambi and change linux64-gcc above to linux32-gcc. Folks using a different linux may have to use a different JAVA_LIB_DIR.

    Thanks, Dale, for letting us know about NeverNote.

    Hey, just wanted to say Nevernote for Linux is purddy sweet. I’ve been using evernote via wine, and though its uber awesome, I much prefer native clients. So with nevernote, you can sync to your evernote account, allowing you to add stuff to it, via the evernote web interface, or mobile or whatever, and then sync it using nevernote. Check it out, you’ll be glad you did -> http://nevernote.sourceforge.net/

  41. Dale L. says:

    Yeah, Nevernote is really good and to add to that, the new version is available as a deb package for quick & easy installation – no need to fool with .tar files! No more messing around with qtjambi files etc. – simply download, click and install. Enjoy…

    3.5 NEVER worked under WINE on Linux. But 4.0 through to 4.2.2 (the latest at the time of writing) work OK – for me and several others. A few minor quibbles and it’s not very fast – but it still works. And the reason 4 works is because it’s a rewrite to eliminate some dependencies WINE couldn’t deliver. (And the reason for the rewrite was because those same dependencies apparently made lots of peripheral devices stop working in 3.5.)

    By the way, anyone serious about Evernote should follow the various forums at http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/

  46. [...] Иногда у меня возникает необходимость сохранять небольшие текстовые заметки. Раньше я использовал для этих целей Google Notebook, но после запуска Google Docs, развитие проекта Notebook было остановлено. И вот, совершенно случайно, я узнал о существовании замечательной альтернативы с благозвучным названием Evernote. Суть простая – вы получаетете некоторый объем дискового пространства, в пределах которого можно размещать не только текстовые, но и графические, и даже аудио заметки. Заметки можно раскидывать по разным, тематическим, блокнотам. Каждой заметке можно присваивать метки для группировки быстрого доступа. Владельцам Windows, MacOSX, iPhone/iPad и Android доступны клиенты для удобной работы с сервисом. Владельцам Linux повезло чуть меньше, но и это не очень большая проблема. Для всех основных браузеров предусмотрены «Клипперы», позволяющие быстро создавать заметки из активных вэб страниц. Так же есть неофициальный клиент Nevernote, но его работа пока еще далека от идеала. Зато windows-версия клиента вполне сносно работает под Wine, так что если вы по какой-либо причине не хотите, или не можете использовать возможности, предоставляемые сайтом, добро пожаловать сюда. А для тех, кто дружит с английским языком, рекомендую сразу перейти к инструкции. [...]
