Hi guys,

since I'll be starting to journal (noting down) things for my study project within the next days

I've looked for an suitable program to take notes and found it in KeepNote:

http://code.google.com/p/keepnote/

unfortunately there's no ebuild yet

would someone be so kind to write one ?


Many thanks in advance

I wanted to have the ability to take notes and easily include screenshots and keepnote seems to fit the bill. To me, the convenience of taking a screen shot (Alt + Print Scrn for the current window in focus) and then Ctrl-V is a real time saver. I've used several wikis and find that after capturing the screenshot, I'd have to open an appplication, e.g. paint.exe, save the file locally, then upload the newly created file into a wiki, then reference the newly uploaded file within the wiki enough trouble to discourage me from capturing visuals. Keepnote runs on Linux, Winows, & Mac. I've been using Keepnote for about a week now on Windows 7 and am going to install it on my Gentoo laptop.

I tried cherry tree and found it mangled the images if I resized them, so if I start with an 800 x 600 and reduce it to 400 x 300 and then resize it back to 800 x 600 there is a loss in quality, so it looks like they actually change the images themselves rather than alter a display mechanism. From the keepnote documenttation:
Quote:
KeepNote will display the image at its new size, while keeping the original image file unaltered (original size).


There a new (7/4/2012) ebuild out now: keepnote-0.7.9.ebuild

Where does one save on the tree ebuilds not slotted within Gentoo's structure? /usr/local/portage/misc or /usr/local/src?

Looks like it's not a simple matter of arbitrarily selecting any directory:
Code:
themis misc # ebuild keepnote-0.7.9.ebuild  digest
Appending /usr/local to PORTDIR_OVERLAY...
!!! /usr/local/portage/misc/keepnote-0.7.9.ebuild does not seem to have a valid PORTDIR structure.
themis misc # pwd
/usr/local/portage/misc
themis misc #


It would be helpful if people offering ebuilds also include a recommend place to save the ebuild in that conforms to whatever standards. I do this so rarely that whatever rules apply are not remembered (I have about a two week retention policy) and then I have to go look it up.

I'm on a new build of Gentoo, so I did the following:

    unremark the line "PORTAGE_OVERLAY=/usr/local/portage" in my /etc/portage/make.conf file

    create directories /usr/local/portage/app-text, /usr/local/portage/app-text/keepnote


    place keepnote-0.7.9.ebuild under /usr/local/portage/app-text/keepnote


    cd to /usr/local/portage/app-text/keepnote and run:
    Code:
    ebuild keepnote-0.7.9.ebuild digest
    emerge app-text/keepnote
    keepnote &

Excellent.

Thank you. I've continued to use KeepNote (on Windows) and have not run into any problems, it's working as advertised.
