Tomboy: The easiest Note-taking Program (Ubuntu 7.10)

Relatively new application that has found its way into recent versions of almost all Linux distributions is Tomboy. It is in cross-indexing tool and a quick publisher all rolled into one. Tomboy is also very addictive and easy to use, and does away with the hassle of naming files and remembering the directory paths. It is an evolving application and the latest release is still at version 0.6.

To start:
1. Go to Application --> Accessories --> Tomboy Notes, which lunched Tomboy as an applet on your panel. Once lunched it remains active and you can access your note quickly from the applet icon till you log out or quit the applet.

2. To give automatic lunched Tomboy every time you boot the system; you can use this guide (for gnome):
right-clicking on an empty space on the panel and selecting the 'Add to Panel' option. Once you have 'Add to Panel' window up, select the Tomboy Notes application and click the 'Add' button to add it in your panel.

Many feature Tomboy can do. For more infomation about Tomboy please visit http://www.gnome.org/projects/tomboy/
