Selected Test Results

What works

Installs fine, most things work as expected.

What does not

On the Library Bar - When it is clicked it closes the clipbook. The workaround is to click and drag off the desired library. This happens on all NoteTab Light, Standard, and Pro. This happens on all distributions of Linux.

The issue with the flashing cursor not being in the position of the actual cursor at the bottom of the page is still there. When enter is pressed a new line is added, but the cursor does not appear to moved. This is an issu that only affects Pro.

What was not tested

Full regression testing was not done.

HowTo / Notes


I have the best success with Wine if I uninstall the old version of Wine before installing the new version.

I keep a copy of the install for the version that I know works, so if the new version of Wine introduces new issues, I can easily roll back to a working configuration.

All the user settings are unaffected by uninstalling Wine. All user settings are kept under /home/username/.wine.

If you want to try a completely new install of NoteTab or any other Windows program and preserve your settings, you can rename the .wine directory in your user directory.There have been no issues that have required this for a couple of years.

No special settings have been required to get NoteTab Pro to work.

The best place for questions on NoteTab and Linux is the Yahoo Group.

There is a Yahoo Group for NoteTab users who run Linux.

All Linux distributions are welcome and all version of NoteTab are welcome.

NoteTab on Linux on Yahoo Groups

I run the NoteTab on Linux group on Yahoo.

I am glad to see both NoteTab Light and Pro again in the AppDB. I have not had time to try to be an App Maintainer.

You can find the Yahoo Group Here:


I have been a NoteTab beta tester for years, see Help. I also have a page of my efforts of testing NoteTab Pro on Linux:

I also have a page with older posts on the NoteTab lists:

I look forward to improving Wine support for all versions of NoteTab.
