Evernote Linux Client `Everpad` Available For GNOME Shell, KDE

Everpad UnityEverpad, an Evernote (note taking service) client for Linux, has reached version 2.3, getting GNOME Shell support (TopIcon extension is recommended), along with other new features and improvements.
Everpad features:
supports Everpad notes, tags, netbooks, resources, placesUnity lens with previews supportUbuntu AppIndicator
The latest Everpad 2.3 should now work with GNOME Shell, however, since the GNOME Shell Message Tray is not intended for applications such as Everpad, it’s recommended to use it with the TopIcon extension.

That’s not all that’s new in the latest Everpad 2.3. The new version also brings drag’n’drop for images and files, printing and RTL support.
Since our last post on Everpad, the application has improved a lot! For instance, Everpad works under KDE and it even comes with Krunner integration (press ALT + F2 to open Krunner, then type “create note” to quickly create a new note with Everpad, or you can search for existing notes, etc.).

Pin Notes To Your Desktop With StickyNotes Indicator

indicator stickynotesStickyNotes Indicator is a simple appindicator which can be used to place post-it (sticky) notes on your Linux desktop.
The notes placement on the desktop is restored on each login, which is very useful if you use the notes as reminders.
This tiny application doesn’t come with a huge list of options and instead, it only allows you to change the note background and text color, keeping everything very simple and light. From the appindicator, you can select to hide all notes, in case you want a clean desktop, along with an option to restore the notes later on.
There are a few things that would be useful, but are missing in Stickynotes Indicator, like a creating note groups, keyboard shortcuts support or monochrome Appindicator icons for Ubuntu, but these will probably be added in a later version.

The Indicator Stickynotes Launchpad page mentions that the application should work with Unity, GNOME Shell, Xfce, MATE and Cinnamon and there’s even partial KDE support. I’ve only tested it with Unity, GNOME Shell and Xfce and I can confirm everything works as expected.

Install Stickynotes Indicator
The Stickynotes Indicator PPA currently provides packages for Ubuntu 12.04 / Linux Mint 13 only – add the PPA and install it using the following commands:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:umang/indicator-stickynotes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-stickynotes
Even though there are no Ubuntu 12.10 packages, I’ve tested Stickynotes Indicator and it works great with the latest Ubuntu version, so if you’re using Quantal Quetzal, download Stickynotes Indicator deb from HERE.

If you encounter bugs, report them @ Launchpad.
