gnote - A simple note-taking application for Gnome


gnote [OPTION] ...


This manual page documents briefly the gnote command.

Gnote is a desktop note-taking application for Linux and Unix. Simple and easy to use, but
with potential to help you organize the ideas and information you deal with every day.

Gnote's usefulness lies in the ability to relate notes and ideas together, using a
WikiWiki-like linking system.

When run without any options, either a Search All Notes window or the Gnote note menu
appears in the notification tray area depending on configuration. Selecting a note from a
list in Search All Notes or from the menu from notification area displays the note's
spatial window.

Changes to notes are saved automatically. Links to URLs, files, and other notes are
detected as you type. Rich editing such as highlighting, bold, italics, undo/redo, and
variable font sizes are supported.

Global keybindings exist to allow fast access to Gnote notes and dialogs. These
keybindings are set in GSettings (see below) and may be activated from any application.


The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with options starting with two
dashes (`--'). A summary of options are included below.

--note-path PATH

applied instantly to any running Gnote instance. A summary of the GConf settings and their
purpose are described below.
