pointed me to a program he found called Zim wiki
. It's similar to Tomboy notes but different in many ways as well. It runs more as an app, and less as a tray item. The other very cool thing about it is that all the notes are just stored in standard plain text with normal wiki markup type language, making them easily viewable and editable from the command line. Anyways, I'm finding it really quite good and wanted to run the latest version (Debian Etch has 0.17, but 0.25 is out). In order to run it on Etch I had to upgrade a couple perl modules by switching my sources to testing and doing a
apt-get install libfile-desktopentry-perl libmodule-build-perl libfile-basedir-perl
After that it's just a matter of untar'ing the source, and running the binary (<src dir>/bin/zim)
Also to make things even more useful, there exists a Tomboy 2 Zim
python script to convert your notes if you were using Tomboy.
