Import/recovery on Windows 10

Hello,

I am trying to recover a (large) archive of notes from a complete
backup, to get everything back up and running on a fresh machine.  I
think the old version was 1.8.something and unupdated.  I've been
trying for a few days and I've been unable to answer even some basic
questions by myself, so I'm resorting to bothering you developers.

Tomboy doesn't seem to have import or restore functionality, but I
figured I could just install a fresh version of tomboy on the new
machine, then find where in the Windows file structure the note files
are stored, and then overwrite that folder with the old backed up
folder. The place I've gotten stuck is finding where in the Windows 10
directory structure the data is stored.  And I thought that that would
be the easy part.  It doesn't seem to be anywhere in "Program Files",
and I wasn't able to figure it out from source.

A side question is whether the newest version of notes
(1.15.something) will be able to read xml written in 1.8.x

Another question is how to confirm that 1.8.x was in fact the version
that produced these notes.  That 1.8 figures is just an educated
guess.  Might it be that the .note or manifest files say which version
of the program produced them?  I tried looking , but the closest I saw
was a reference to version 0.3 in the header to a .note file:
"<note version="0.3"
xmlns:link="http://beatniksoftware.com/tomboy/link"
xmlns:size="http://beatniksoftware.com/tomboy/size"
xmlns="http://beatniksoftware.com/tomboy">"

Write-Protection of notes

Dear all!

I'm using tomboy for many years now to organise data; the resulting
links between my ~1000+ notes makes working with the database very
convenient.

What I do not like about tomboy is the lack of a "write-protection" for
notes.  A while ago I implemented a rudimentary add-in, that adds an
"edit" icon to the notes.  The default is "editable off", so I have to
click that icon to be able to input text.

But I also found that I can not turn off the edit operations on selected
text.  So it is still possible to accidentally delete marked text.  Very
annoying.  Aware of this I help myself by committing the notes regularly
into a git repository which is better than nothing.

As far as I remember my digs on the code base: it might be possible that
it can not be done thoroughly by plug-in code; it might have to be
introduced into the core.  And here I'm at my wits end. 

I am pretty sure that I'm not the first one asking for this feature,
neither am I the first one who implemented the "rudimentary
editable/write-protection"-feature outlined above.  That suggests it
might not be easy to implement a full-working solution?

If there's anyone willing to complete what I started, I'd provide my
patch-set as a starting point. 

But maybe there's a solution out there I'm not aware of?

Tomboy on mac

Hi everyone, 

I was wondering if anyone had a step-by-step guide to installing tomboy on Mac and syncing it with Dropbox (which is synced with my tomboy on my ubuntu laptop). I can’t seem to find a good guide, or at least one that explains things in lay terms for novices.

Bashir

Thanks for the feedback. If someone can verify these details we can
update the wiki. Also curious what version of Windows version and .NET
version are you using? It would be good to include how to install on
different versions of Windows as I'm sure it's changed from version to
version.

Windows Installation Instructions

I am going by this guide https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy/Installing/Windows

The link for Gtk+ in step 3 (http://www.gtk.org/download/win32.php) is broken.
http://www.gtk.org/download/windows.php recommends installing MSYS2,
however I have tried that and it doesn't leave a directory structure
with any similarity to C:\GtkPlus\bin

Is Gtk+ even necessary?  I found that I can install/run it fine
without Gtk+, skipping step 3 entirely.  I do not have a c:\gtkplus
folder, or a reg key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\AssemblyFolders\GtkSharp

Also, there seems to be a lot of confusion about the different
versions of GTK#, and which one will actually make tomboy work.
First it says 2.12.20 or newer.  The modern version is 2.12.30.  Then
below it recommends the "older 2.12.22".
I have created a comparison of how Tomboy runs with 3 versions of GTK#
http://imgur.com/a/XTj6h
2.12.22 has bugs
2.12.30 has bugs
2.12.25 *seems* to be the best...

I think if any version is recommended on the install instructions page
it should be 2.12.25, the link for which is
http://download.xamarin.com/GTKforWindows/Windows/gtk-sharp-2.12.25.msi
(I was only able to find this through this mailing list's archives, I
could only find links to old versions of mono, not old versions of
Gtk#)

Also, if GTK+ is not necessary you could maybe remove that step
entirely from the install process?  I don't understand how it's
working without it though, since the instructions say Gtk# is just the C#
binding for Gtk+, which is missing.  But clearly Gtk# is required and
the version matters.

Status of project?

Hi all,

Just out of curiosity, are tomboy/tomdroid/rainy still maintained? I haven't 
seen much commit activity,  which has me wondering. To me, there's a 
difference between "Still maintained, we just have this thing called a job 
that pays the rent" or "It's working well enough for now" and "Yeah, no one's 
really paying much attention to it anymore." 

I was hit by the issues around making rainy work with newer versions of mono 
and wound up jumping through hoops to roll back all those dependencies - and I 
saw today that there haven't been any changes since then.  My plan to create a 
sync server on a more common linux-friendly platform kind of never got off the 
ground (see, we're all busy!).

compile and run

Hello all,

I'm wondering if someone could help me build from source and run.

Following the build instructions was simple enough. However, running in Ubuntu (15.10 wily) the UI never comes up. I just get :

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
bin]$ ./tomboy

(Tomboy:28364): libtomboy-WARNING **: Binding '<Alt>F12' failed!


(Tomboy:28364): libtomboy-WARNING **: Binding '<Alt>F11' failed!

[INFO 01:16:13.918] Initializing Mono.Addins
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

then the app just sits. I can give more details if this isn't enough.

Sincerely
- Ray

Compiling Tomboy on Mac os 10.11.1

Hi all,
is Tomboy development still alive?
I´m a bit confused about the relationship of Tomboy and Tomboy-osx, but I had Tomboy running on my machine till Mac os 10.10. After an upgrade to 10.11. it suddenly stopped.
Now I trying to compile latest tomboy with latest mono framework but it fails on missing Mono.Addins library:
On: Mono.Addins.Gui.AddinTreeWidget addin_tree;
/Users/zsolt/git_work/tomboy/Tomboy/PreferencesDialog.cs(8,8): Error CS0234: The type or namespace name `Addins' does not exist in the namespace `Mono'. Are you missing an assembly reference? (CS0234) (Tomboy-mac)

Mono.Addins isn´t part of the mono framework anymore.
Any advice?

Best regards

Zsolt Barat
