    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.
