In this tutorial I’ll show you a lightweight sticky notes software for Ubuntu users. It’s indicator-stickynotes which allows you to jot down thoughts, lists, and reminders on your desktop. This simple tool works on Unity, Gnome Shell, XFCE/Xubuntu, with partial support for KDE/Kubuntu and Linux Mint (MATE and Cinnamon).

  3. es una mierda en 13.10 cuando abres otra ventana y vuelves al escritorio se borran automáticamente, no sirve para nada

  4. There may be problems in step 1 of installing sticky notes if you are using a proxy.
    “Please check that the PPA name or format is correct”

    In this case you need to export your proxy environment variables using

    export http_proxy=http://username:[email protected]:port/
    export https_proxy=https://username:[email protected]:port/

    and then tell:

    sudo -E add-apt-repository ppa:umang/indicator-stickynotes

    Enjoy :)
