Tomboy and Dropbox, the Dynamic Duo

Filed under
Linux

I just saw an article headline about Tomboy and it's strengths. It made me think about all the reasons I use Tomboy and perhaps my favorite reason for using it.

I use Dropbox because I like having access to files regardless of what computer I'm using or where I'm at. It is extremely helpful to me.

I use Tomboy because I am always keeping notes and information I want "at hand" while I'm working on any number of tasks.

One of my favorite abilities of Tonmboy is keeping the Tomboy folder in which all one's actuall note content are stored in a folder in Dropbox.

Not only can I use Tomboy and keep my same notes on any computer I'm using that has both, but if I ever have something go awry with my computer, such as installing a different distro, hard drive crash, etc..., I can have my notes back in a flash.

It's like having my Tomboy notes backed up and centralized all in one.

It's pretty easy to do too with the synchronization tools that Tomboy provides.

I gotta admit, it gets the job done for me.

How to Upgrade from Ubuntu 17.10 or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Before we go through the upgrade process in more detail, there are a few things you should know. First and foremost, make sure you have a recent backup of your most important files on an external drive, do it now! Second of all, if you're upgrading from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, you'll have to deal with some major desktop changes if you use Unity. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) uses the Unity desktop environment by default, but Ubuntu 18.04 LTS uses the GNOME desktop environment with a highly customized interface to make it look like Unity, which Canonical said it won't be removed during the upgrade process and will remain available as an alternative if you still want to use it.
