Sub_title: Note-taking; information organisation; thesis writing
 

KeepNote is an open-source project for note-taking and general information organisation. http://keepnote.org/keepnote/.
Currently available in Linux as a deb or tarball etc. but I haven't been able to get it running in Puppy (Lucid-lite 525). It needs Python2.5 (or any greater 2.X), sqlite (version >= 3.5.0), PyGTK, gtkspell (optional). I haven't been successful in getting these dependencies to work - could someone in the forums please look at making a pet or SFS of KeepNote for Puppy's repositories, please?

Cheers.

Sub_title: Getting KeepNote to work in Puppy 5.2.8
 

Reviving this thread. KeepNote is a fine program.

Problem: import keepnote - no module
Fix:
Code:
export PYTHONPATH=/usr/share/pyshared/:$PYTHONPATH


Problem: libsqlite3-3.6.12.so.0 missing
Fix:
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libsqlite3.so.0.8.6 /usr/lib/libsqlite3.6.12.so.0


Problem: import _glib - no module
Fix: _glib.so is in /usr/lib/pyshared/python2.6/gtk-2.0/glib/ but setting up a path to it doesn't help. Python is complaining about a missing module, not a shared library. Also, _glib is not a standard part of Python.

This is my 'stuck-at' point. Has anyone gotten beyond this?

I've uploaded keepnote for saluki. That probably doesn't help you but, there it is. Smile

Thanks, Hotdog and jemimah!

I thought that this thread was dead, but there you go - Puppians RULE!

And, now a confession on my behalf Embarassed
In the interrim, the boys at Docear (http://www.docear.org/) have recently released a working beta. It's KeepNote+FreeMind+Osmo+PDF management rolled into one. I've got the *.exe working swimmingly in a Lucid 528 under Wine (Hungarian XP_Puppy528 - thanks skami and kros54). I hope to do My First Compile/Pet this weekend with the Linux tar.gz. Needs Java 6+ (will be following the How To wiki Very Closely. Thanks coolpup). So for many, KeepNote will be a lighter alternative and I encourage the development of a working pet for run-of-the-mill Pupplets, Saluki already been 'filled'.
Cheers!

EDIT: Whups - just spotted my accidental oxymoron - like "Military Intelligence" and "Windows Operating System", there's no such thing as "run-of-the mill Puppy".

jemimah - Congratulations on developing saluki. What will we do when we run out of breeds to name our puppies after! It may be that KeepNote works for you because of the more modern approach of your OS.

Puppyt - Docear is new to me, am looking at it now. Thanks for the tip. Another 'thank you' for mentioning WINE. I got so engrossed in trying to make KeepNote work in Puppy 5.2.8 that it didn't occur to me to try it with WINE. And, I do use WINE a lot for IrfanView.

Good luck with your compile/pet project!

Sub_title: KeepNote solved on Puppy 5.2.8
 

Puppy friends, I was making it more difficult than necessary. Here is what worked for me on Puppy 5.2.8 full HD install:

Requirements: Python (2.6.4 here), python-gtk2, python-glade2 and libgtk2.0-dev (Got all these from the Debian repository. Puppy installs them without question) and keepnote-0.7.7.tar.gz from http://keepnote.org.

Create a directory, /root/keepnote (name and location not important). Move keepnote-0.7.7.tar.gz into it and do:

Code:
tar zxvf keepnote-0.7.7.tar.gz
You will then have a directory structure like /root/keepnote/keepnote-0.7.7/bin/keepnote. Navigate with your file manager to the last 'keepnote' in that directory string and click on the keepnote python icon. That's it. You're now running KeepNote!

KeepNote doesn't have to be 'installed'. You can make a desktop icon launcher and put in a menu entry following the directions found on this forum and other Puppy resources.

Think you'll need all the deps for the listed packages as well.

(for python-gtk2 I counted 15 of them).
