1.) Copy and paste this command, and run. It adds the stable ppa repository to your system:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vincent-c/nevernote

2.) If you’ve installed Synaptic Package Manager, open it and click Reload button to update package lists. Then search for and install nixnote:

  1. This was useful, thanks.

  2. The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    nixnote : Depends: libssl0.9.8 but it is not installable
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

    I have a newer version of this file (libssl1.0.0) but it is not accepting it. How do I fix this?

  3. On the saucy-based Mint, i’m getting the following:
    $ nixnote
    Exception in thread “main” java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: cx/fbn/nevernote/NeverNote : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

    Could not find the main class: cx.fbn.nevernote.NeverNote. Program will exit.

    although I’ve checked the /usr/share/nixnote folder and it has the jar with the mentioned “not found” class.
