XFCE4 notes: Migrate to new system

Postby peter_b » Thu Nov 02, 2017 3:02 pm

I'm a big fan on "XFCE's notes".
Here's how you backup and/or migrate your notes from one setup to another:

1) The notes folder
They are usually located in "$HOME/.local/share/notes".
(Unless the $XDG_DATA_HOME environment variable points somewhere else)

2) The notes textfiles
Your notes are stored as plaintext files in the subfolder "Notes".

Knowing this, you can now easily backup (and migrate) your notes.
You don't have to close notes before doing that: It will display a "reload" icon after a few seconds when it notices that the contents of the notes-folder have changed.
(At least in v1.8.1 / Xubuntu 16.04.3)

Enjoy! 8)
