  • Ability to add, edit and delete notes.
  • Ability to move notes around
  • Ability to have notes on top of other windows
  • Note text/position should be maintained after restart
  • Should work with Ubuntu 15.10 under Unity.
  • Xpad Been a while since the last time I used ubuntu, but I gess sudo apt-get install xpad

Check out Tomboy.

It has features that allows syncing to all your computers and devices. There are a couple of syncing services but I use the graupel plugin of Owncloud.

Installation is simple:

$ sudo apt-get install tomboy

If you use Chromium or Google Chrome on Ubuntu, you call install the packaged app Whenever.

It meets most of your criteria, except the note text and position after restart.
