Daily Journal – Journal application for Ubuntu that keeps one page per day

Daily Journal is a journal application for Ubuntu that keeps one page per day. The focus is on letting you take your notes. There is no file management, formatting, or other complexity imposed. If you have a Ubuntuone account, your diary will be automatically synchronized across your computers.

The big change for the 10.04.1 release was that we switched the note navigation from a simple list of dates to a calendar that can be navigated.

Install daily journal on ubuntu

Open the terminal and run the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository rickspencer3/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install daily-journal

    1. PPA given is incorrect:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rick-rickspencer3/ppa
    will work.

    2. Installing on 10.04 gives error message:
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    daily-journal : Depends: python (>= 2.7) but 2.6.6-2ubuntu2 is to be installed (M:2.7 not available for maverick in normal repos)
    Depends: python-quickly.widgets but it is not installable (M: installing quickly-widgets possible but does not remove error message).

    Martin: I ran into the same thing. I was able to get it somewhat working by installing quickly-widgets so I was lucky.

    I had much better luck with Red Notebook which seems to be a more robust app. I was able to have it up and running it a couple of minutes, have played with it for a while and it seems to do all that Daily-journal does and more.

    sudo add-apt-repository “deb https://robin.powdarrmonkey.net/ubuntu lucid/”
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install rednotebook powdarrmonkey-keyring

    If you are on maverick just change lucid above and all else is the same.

    I think you will like it. It’s cross platform and portable. Also well documented. See:

    One point. If you click the download

    continued …

    on the sourceforge page it gives the code for Maverick. So I made the adjustment as above and all worked well.

    I get the following error message after ‘sudo apt-get update’.

    ‘E:Malformed line 54 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse), E:The list of sources could not be read.’

    What might be the problem?

    Just add ppa:rick-rickspencer3/ppa to Software Sources ‘other sources’ tab.
