Re: OS X package no longer provided - should it still be called an OS X application?

Oops. Meant to send this to the list, hit the wrong button.

Just tried getting the Windows version working, but the GTK+ bundle doesn't exist anymore, I think. https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy/Installing/Windows
 
I took a look at MYSYS2, but then I realized it's some kind of build tool, and though I do know how to use pacman at least - I don't think it would've helped.

Hi Chris,

You're right, it seems to be gone. I compiled my own tomboy on windows so I probably still have the GTK package somewhere.

If you like I can have a look on Monday when I'm back in the office. I only use Windows at work :)

Also, the GTK project now recommends to install MSYS2 instead, whatever that is :) might help you in the mean time! http://www.gtk.org/download/windows.php

PS looks like you just replied to me and not the whole list, was that your intention?

Regards,

Tycho

I didn't bother investigate more as to why it didn't work as it wasn't a must-have for me. But it would have been nice.

OS X package no longer provided - should it still be called an OS X application?

The latest version I can see with an OS X package provided is 1.6, which no longer launches. Are OS X users expected to build their own package now? If so, perhaps this page should be updated.

https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Tomboy/

If users have to build the application themselves to get it working, perhaps calling it "a desktop note-taking application for Linux, Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X" is not quite accurate - I can't even get the latest version to build on El Capitan...

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">"

Thank you for your help.

best,
seth.

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?

thanks
	Nicolas

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

HDPI support

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if there was any way to enable HDPI support on tomboy/if its planned for the future? If not, could someone point me the right direction of where to look to add it in?

Thanks

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

Is the OSX client still being developed?

Hi Guys,

I just want to ask if the Tomboy osx client is still being developed?

I have LOADS of notes that now do not work on OSX 10.

Thanks
