Not on elementary?

Notes-Up is made for elementary OS, but has been built and made available elsewhere by community members. These builds may have modifications or changes and are not provided or supported by me.

Notes-Up is available for openSUSE, and Arch Linux.

You can also install Notes-Up from a PPA. But be aware that your results may vary and it may require the elementary OS PPA as it uses a newer version of the granite library.

PPA: ppa:philip.scott/notes-up

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/notes-up
# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install com.github.philip-scott.notes-up

How To Build

For advanced users!

git clone
cd Notes-up
mkdir build && cd build
sudo make install

If you are building on a distribution which is not elementary, you need to add -Dnoele=1 when running cmake.
