MyNotex is a free software for Linux useful to take and to manage textual notes, also a large number of them. Notes are gathered under different subjects and are made by a title, a date, a tags (keywords) list and a free-length plain text; up to the present version of MyNotex, this cannot be formatted (no italic, bold, etc.), but the software can manage bullets and numbered lists, although without automatic indentation. A single file of MyNotex contains various subjects and notes.

The main features of the software are:

* various attachments (files of every kind) for each note, zipped and stored in a directory with the same name and path of the MyNotex file in use and automatically managed by the software; the number of attachments is limited only by the available disk space;
* search for subjects and notes (also in the text) and for tags (keywords);
* moving a note from a subject to another;
* importation and exportation of single subjects with the related notes and attachments from and to another file of MyNotex;
* direct importation an OpenOffice Writer file;
* export data in HTML format, which can be easily opened with a word processor like OpenOffice Writer.

Finally it is possible to synchronize two different files of MyNotex so that the new, the changed and the deleted subjects, notes and attachments in each one of them are mirrored in the other; at the end of the process, the two files and attachments directories are identical. This feature allows to modify two or more files of MyNotex offline and then connect to the LAN or the Internet and synchronize them, also through a cloud services like Dropbox or Ubuntu One.

Install MyNotex in ubuntu

download .deb packages from here once you have deb packages you can install them by double clicking on it.

    Would be nice to see how it compares with Zim.

    @Jason, I’ve been looking for Evernote for Linux for the longest time. Thanks for the heads-up.

    The print process is controlled by a process called lpd.
    The Quadruple Inverted Backflip vulnerability could allow any remote user to gain access
    to the system with the privileges of user
    bin. By this access, it is often trivial to gain root access.
    Thus, a remote user could execute
    arbitrary code on a properly configured print server.
    The problems being exploited here are four-fold.

    • LPD allows remote machines to print files without having access to LPD, because LPD
    compares the reversed-resolved peer name of the accepted socket’s address, with the
    gethostname () name returned by the machine, and if they’re the same, grants access
    without any query. Hence, if you’re the master of your own DNS, simply make your IP
    address reverse-resolve to the same hostname as the LPD server, and you have access to
    it.

    •LPD allows you to send as many data files to the printer spooler directory as you want.

    These files can be binaries, text, or otherwise.

    •LPD allows you to specify anything you want in the ‘control
    file’ (often named
    cfBLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH in /var/spool/lpd// ), even host names
    and other
    things that don’t exist.

    •LPD allows you to specify an argument to /usr/sbin/sendmail and execute it.
    This is done
    by specifying that LPD should send mail back to the print job owner
    when the print job is
    completed (‘M’ in the cf file). However, the sendmail argument in the LPD c.f.

    file
    doesn’t have to be an email address, it can be a
    sendmail option, such as ‘-
    C’.

    So, we have the unfortunate result that one can send
    several data files to print, including a
    disguised sendmail configuration file, after which a cf file is
    sent along, requesting that sendmail
    be invoked with the configuration file that
    is sent over.

    Systems affected and Fix: RedHat Linux 4.x,
    5.x, and 6.x. If print service is not needed, disable
    lpd. Otherwise, the vulnerability can be fixed by applying the appropriate patch by downloading
    the fix
