It looks like you're out of luck. This from the Evernote website:

Evernote is currently not available for Linux
You could use wine or run windows in a virtual machine.
The only package I could find relating to Evernote is this:

There is, or at least was, an Evernote clone around, originally called Nevernote, then Nixnote. ISTR that I installed it some time back, but never used it much. I think there were some issues with it, but I can't recall what they were. I've been using an Evernote extension in Chrome browser for a long time, and that works for me.

RedNoteBook

I found "RedNoteBook" in the standard apps for my LMDE/MINT17 and loaded that, just to see how it worked.

It is certainly an interesting little app,-- I don't think it holds a candle to just using the regular Linux File system with the RECOLL search tool- but -- what the hey!!

I was researching this in response to a query from by illustrious brother--- who is a great advocate of mobil computing -- and is running around with a pocket full of 3x5" note cards -- on which he has trouble finding items he needs to find --

I tried to help him with that -- using the address book, appointments calendar, and to-do list in his e/mail system and the bookmarks feature of his browser. or possibly installing a password manager such as the one offered related to Norton/360

Still there will be notes not related to these run-of-the-mill items that he may wish to record -- in a manner accessible to all 3 of his mobil devices: iPhone, tablet, & note-book. Google/Keep comes to mind -- as he is a GMail user.

Evernote has a Web portal (www.evernote.com for info) that works well with Firefox and Chrome running on a Linux host. I've been using it for three years and it has become one of those thing's I'd hate to do without. iPhone/iPad app works great, too, for instant access from anywhere there's a cellular or wi-fi connection.

The possible downside is that suing the web portal puts everything in the cloud. You need Internet access to get to your notes and notebooks. That's not a problem for me, but it is a consideration.

thanks for the tip; i'll definitely check this out!! personally I use only my studio computer, + a little flip phone is my only mobil device. my brother does iphone, ipad and notebook though and will want his notes synched to all 3 devices.

i think the key to success in a note pad app though is in ease of entry,..... I've kinda wondered how it would work with a Galaxie/Note -- where one should be able to scribble a note with that stylus thing and have it turn into text. voice to text would be the Ultimate method of making an entry.

after that the next issue is finding stuff -- the search tool has to be very good .
