As Nevernote 0.97 has been released, I decided to build a debian vm and see if it worked (if I was being strict about a test regime I should of course tested against Ubuntu 10.10, but I wanted to see what Debian was like these days).
After a minor struggle during which I discovered (a) I didn't know how to drive KDE anymore (b) java wasn't installed by default, I installed NeverNote 0.97 and it basically worked. A few minor display issues on some webclippings, but basically it worked.
So my advice is this:
- Try installing 0.97 on linux, there is no reason why it should not work for you
- If it hangs with Qt.Jambi errors try the 0.92 version - this one works for me
