Install Sticky Notes in elementary OS freya / Ubuntu

In Windows, I used to use Sticky Notes very often to quickly note down ‘To do’ things. Some reason it is the easiest way to remember things rather a big dedicated program. I always needed something light, colorful, and always visible on the desktop just like the real paper sticky on Linux too. Elementary OS doesn’t come with Sticky notes installed, and one will definitely miss it, especially who came from Windows world.

No need to search much, Sticky Notes is available for Linux too!

Install Sticky Notes on elementary OS / Ubuntu / Linux Mint

Launch ‘Terminal’ and type the following commands one by one and hit enter.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:umang/indicator-stickynotes
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-stickynotes

The program should be installed. It should be listed as ‘Indicator StickyNotes’ in the Applications list.

The program resembles Sticky Notes of Windows 7/8/10, or rather you can do more. It lets you add categories and each category can have its own color, font, and font size. It has export and import functionality to easily move the notes between PCs.

Other features include locking a note to avoid accidental deletion or overwriting of notes in it and easy to hide and show all note at once. That’s it about the Sticky Notes. Which one do you use?
