Knotes is available as a .deb package from pkgs.org:
http://pkgs.org/debian-wheezy/debian-ma ... 4.deb.html

Insure that this is the appropriate architecture, download and convert with deb2xzm and finally active. Start minor in command line to see what libraries are missing. You can also have a look at the prerequisite libraries mentioned in pkgs.org.

Hi i am new to linux i downloaded the knote package from http://pkgs.org/debian-wheezy/debian-ma ... 6.deb.html since i have an 32-bit system and i can see all the dependencies in the site but i think half or more of it is already present in the kde module so any idea how to findout how to download the dependencies i actually need

I acually did not understand "Start minor in command line to see what libraries are missing" (What is minor and how do i use it)

Please help i really want to learn this

Open terminal as root and execute:

Code: Select all

usm -g xfce4-notes-plugin
Install it with all dependencies and at the end execute something like this (for i486 architecture):

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib && ln -s libxcb-util.so libxcb-util.so.0
For x86_64 probably similar symlink is required.

Follow tome's instructions as you have a 32 bit installation. In addition, it seems more straightforward.

Hi I did what you asked and a xfce note bundle xzm had appeared I ran it but the only thing new I found in it was an app called glade I am not sure but I think that this only works for the xfce environment and I use the KDE environment

You are wrong here - it is made for Xfce DE but works in all DE. I use it for example in Openbox and LXDE. I will try upload it later.

The reason is that there is no knotes in the slackware reporisitory but there is knotes in the debian repository so the that we can take the .deb file and convert it .xzm for use

For testing purposes just activate it wherever you have it. Just point file manager at it, right click with mouse and choose activate.

Once tested, it can go in /porteus/modules if you want it always activated when system comes up. For occasional use it could go in /porteus/optional. Thereafter it could be manually activated, or at system start (Please see website info on optional)

I know that part I have been using porteus for the last two months what I am trying to tell is this app is a sticky note app which means it looks like a small note stuck on the desktop like the yellow notes stuck on your fridge or walls in knotes you would access these from the widget menu that is you would pull the note from the icon what I am saying is how do you access this note. Since the only new app that has come after installing this module is the glade app and I think it is for developing work

For i486 arch download xfce4-notes-plugin-1.7.7-i486-bundle-2tm.xzm from https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7elwcgmk5mwtmme/FmFMsdUIO8
When you have set it remove once xfce4-notes icon from tray to be sure your settings are saved.

Another way is to install notes extension for firefox or chrome. For example to start quickfox notes I use this qfn.desktop launcher:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=firefox -p 'Default Profile' -qfn
# -chrome chrome://qfnotes/content/openEditor.xul
Icon=qfn
Type=Application
Categories=Utility;
Name=QuickFox Notes
I don't know why kde-i486 doesn't contain knotes, kde-x86_86 should have it (but it is hidden somewhere in settings).

EDIT:
xfce4-notes-plugin-1.7.7-i486-bundle-2tm.xzm ~ 0.6MB
After activation re-login or launch notes from Applications Menu.
kde i486 and x86_64 don't have knotes
Changing some xfce4-notes settings may not work.
