Syncing Notes via Servers


Is there a way to sync note via servers?  I have the 15 GB 
plan and I'm already using the CalDAV for my calender and task list, and 
I want to sync my notes with  their severs.

Thank you.

Tomboy SYNC

I have two Linux computers Ubuntu 14.04 PC and Lubuntu 14.04 Laptop (also an Android Tablet).  Since the demise of Ubuntu One, I have been using Google Drive Cloud launched by google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/Gdrive at start up.

When I set up Tomboy sync.on both computers pointing to /Gdrive it appeared  to synchronise OK.  On inspection of the Gdrive folder I noticed I had two new folders 0 and 0(1)!  Apparently, each machine created its own sub-folder so that one computer cannot see the other's NOTES. 

Is there any help you can give me in using the Cloud to synchronise.

Yours Simon Bateman (aka Mr.Grumpier)

Method for importing notes from other note systems?

I moved from Outlook notes to Tomboy and had to do it by hand.

I could have automated the process, but I couldn't get a description of how the naming of the XML files in Tomboy was done. Is that documented anywhere?

Formatted links in XML


I'm writing a tomboy note XML to HTML converter for grauphel, my sync

While testing unusual cases, I found that I could style links in
Tomboy 1.15.2.

The text is "Formattest" and it got autolinked. Then I applied
highlight to the first 4 characters, monospace to the "a" and made the
"st" huge. I can still click the link in Tomboy and the correct note
The generated XML is very strange:


I would have expected a <link:interal> around all the tags to the end
of the word, but there are several format and link tags wildly mixed
with each other, making it very hard to reconstruct the old link.

Is that a know bug, design decision or an unfortunate turnout of the
existing code? How does tomboy find out which note is linked?

Mac - new note is always created under 'All notebooks'

Hi All,

I just synced source form git and build it on my Mac. Tomboy started beautifully but all notes go to 'All notebooks'. I tried to drag & drop the note to other notebook. Drag & drop doesn't work. I don't see the transparent image which is usually shown when dragging the item with mouse. I selected other note book and created note under it. The note goes to 'All notebooks' as well. No notes are shown under other notebooks. Does anybody notice this issue on Mac?

Tomboy Compatible Android App

Hi all,
I have just released a Tomboy compatible note taking Android app called TruNote.
This is my first Android app and so I was still getting farmiliar with
the Android development ecosystem while working on it. Notes created
with the TruNote can be simply copied from your device to the tomboy
notes folder on your PC to get them opened in Tomboy and vice versa.

I plan to add some more features in the future but that will be mostly
guided by user feedback. Find it in the google playstore and the
slideme market using the following links respectively.
