According to the Treepad page you linked to, they produce a free product called TreePad Lite for Linux. Have you tried that?

It's listed as "Linux/Wine", which might be what Hydruga was talking about.

It downloads as an archived Linux executable though, not as a Windows executable to be run under Wine.

P.S. I'm Hydrurga. The guy who mentioned it in the first place is watchingu.

Should TreePad for Windows not work with your version of Wine/Linux (it is unlikely, but still possible), then you can try updating Wine to a newer release."

TreePad Lite for Linux is not TreePad for Windows.

What the page is telling you is that if you don't want to download and run the native Linux version (which is a beta version), you can run any of the product's Windows versions under Wine instead.

I mostly just see references to it running on Linux through Wine on the site. By the way, on OS X, there's a program called Winebottler which can turn the Windows executable into a Mac executable by putting in a wrapper - that might be what's going on here.

From the page I posted earlier: "Freeware ('lite') version for 64-bit Linux on a regular PC or Laptop (with Intel or AMD processor). Supports plain text. Please note that this still is a beta version, it has been re-created from scratch using a new programming tool: Free Pascal / Lazarus."

I haven't run it on my computer but I'm pretty sure it's native, not a Windows exe in a wrapper.

TreePad Lite for Linux is text only; no rich-text formatting, no storing graphics, etc. If TreePad Lite for Linux is an acceptable choice for others, then I would suggest checking out Cherrytree, which has some similarities to TreePad for Windows. TreePad for Windows is much better than Cherrytree, though, IMO.
