Tomboy alternative on KDE 4
 
I used to use tomboy in Gnome, now a changed to KDE 4, and i want to use tomboy, but it needs a lot of gnome libraries (~300MB), so i don't want to install it.

Is there some GUI for tomboy in qt?, or Is there some kde application that uses the same note files of tomboy and can sinchronize the data online?.

Thanks

Not sure about a qt GUI for tomboy, but you can use Tomboy under KDE, but, as well as the library issue, there seem to be memory leaks (not all that uncommon under kde 4, but whether that's a kde problem or a tomboy problem, in this case, is an open question...suspect kde, but that is only a suspicion).

kjots is the equivalent kde app, but I don't know about synchronisation.

The best note-taking app in KDE is definitely BasKet.

basket seems good, but tomboy has the advantage (for me) that has a windows's version, so i have the same notes on all SO's and in any PC.

I will have to install it (and all of its gnome dependencies), is the only way.

Thanks for the answers.

I hadn't previously had any contact with Basket, but I had a look at the description, and it looks good, but when I went to the package manager to install it, it wanted to grab a few hundred MB of dependencies to install. I'm guessing that it is saying that it wants to update all of KDE, and I'm not prepared to do that just at the moment.

I will try to remember to give it a try the next time that I do a major update, because the website does make it sound like an attractively capable program.
