Synchronise Tomboy Notes With Dropbox

The Tomboy notes app built into many Linux distributions can synchronise across platforms through WebDAV or SSH, but it's easier to set up your notes to be automatically synchronised through a Dropbox account.

The Starry Hope Productions blog explains the relatively simple tweak needed to start up the synchronisation. Open Tomboy's settings, set the synchronisation settings to Local Folder, then change the folder path to a sub-folder in your main Dropbox folder, usually located in your home directory. From then on out, hit "Synchronize Notes" from the Tools menu on any note, and your data is safely shuttled into the cloud.
