I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and found that Evernote is a powerful note taking software.
But I can't find a Ubuntu (linux) version of this software.
Is there an Ubuntu client for Evernote? Or perhaps a similar program which works on Ubuntu?

There are several possibilities to chose from. If you want to stick with Evernote and its service, some clients are available to use. Andruseto already mentioned Nevernote, but there are also:

  • Everpad. Available from one of Ubuntu's PPA repositories. Will sit in your system tray and stand-by to be used:
    Everpad in the tray (click for larger variant)
    If you're using Unity, Everpad even offers its own lens.
  • Nixnote. Hm, a dupe it might seem – AFAIK this was previously named "Nevernote", so it might overlap with Andresuto's answer. Never mind, here it is:
    Nixnote (click image for larger variant)
    As you can see, this looks very much like the "official" Evernote on Windows ;) And again, it's available via PPA, see below.

Install hints:

# Everpad
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install everpad

# Nixnote
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vincent-c/nevernote
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nixnote
  • @Andruseto As I wrote: AFAIK this was previously named "Nevernote" – so I assume so and pointed to your answer (I'm not using Evernote myself, and neither the mentioned clients, so I cannot tell for sure). And though it's a comment, and it seems we're sharing the same native language: Please remember this site uses English ;)

There are other clients too such as


  • Laverna - link
  • Everpad - link , already mentioned :p
  • Springseed - link
  • BasKet Note Pads - link , although originally for KDE but you have SVN repository access too

IMO try Paperwork and Laverna , they are mature enough so you won't have to try anything else.

  • I need a feature that is not present in BasKet, I need ability to search inside all notes simultaneously. Feb 8, 2015 at 11:27
  • A nice collection of links indeed. But if you check with our guidelines for answers, maybe you could add a little description to each? With that (maybe at least a short pro/cons for each), that would make a pretty useful answer. Thanks a lot!
