  • Presentation
    • Evernote freezes when trying to make a "presentation on another screen"
  • Restart after changing the language
    • The evernote's window closes, but some process keep running in background and that prevents the application from starting again. I have to manually kill every evernote process before restarting it (also manually).
  • The menus' shortcuts are very weird. For example, Alt+U selects (and doesn't open) the "Files" menu.

Additional Comments

The version tested was To make note edition work, you must use wine in 32-bits and "windows XP" mode, and install ie8 with winetricks. Sometimes, the note title text field doesn't work properly, and clicking on it will make the evernote's window lose focus for one or two seconds. If it really annoys you, you can fix the problem by using a virtual desktop.

HowTo / Notes

How to install evernote in wine

To make Evernote work properly, you must use wine in 32-bit mode and install ie8 with winetricks.

Here's how to do it:

  1. Install winetricks with your package manager if it's not already installed.
  2. Run the following commands in a terminal:
    1. export WINEPREFIX="wineprefix_path"
    2. export WINEARCH=win32
    3. winetricks -q ie8
    4. wine "evernote_installer_path"
  3. Follow the installer's instructions
The evernote executable is now located at "wineprefix_path/drive_c/Program Files/Evernote/Evernote/Evernote.exe"
How to install evernote in q4wine

Here is how to make Evernote work with q4wine, a gui for wine.

Preparation steps:

  1. Make sure you have winetricks and q4wine installed (look for them in your package manager).
  2. Make sure that your terminal is properly configured in q4wine:
    1. Opens the options menu: File > Options
    2. Select "General" and opens the "Utils" tab
    3. Enter the path of your terminal, for instance "/usr/bin/gnome-terminal" if you use gnome.
    4. Enter "-e" as an argument (without the quotes, as always), so that q4wine can execute command just after opening a terminal.
  3. Download evernote for windows, from the evernote website.

Installation steps:

  1. In q4wine, create a new prefix with architecture "win32"
  2. Right click on the prefix > console > open console in prefix directory
  3. In the terminal window, type "winetricks -q ie8" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Wait for the ie8 installation to finish.
  4. In the prefix, run the Evernote installer.

Information for creating a launch icon:

The program's path is Program Files/Evernote/Evernote/Evernote.exe

Evernote and PlayOnLinux

Installing Internet Explorer 8 with PlayOnLinux doesn't make Evernote work: the note edition panel remains blank.

You really need to use winetricks to install ie8. Follow the instructions of the how-to for wine.
