The Tusk Evernote client is now available as a Snap.
We spotlighted the unofficial Evernote app last year, finding that it added to and improved on the standard Evernote web app in a number of ways.
Through the inclusion of optional themes, keyboard shortcuts, custom tweaks, a tray icon, and more, Tusk integrates the Evernote web app with the Linux desktop in ways a regular browser tab can’t.
A number of improvements have been made to the app since we first mentioned it. This includes the aforementioned addition of a Snap package plus —deep breath:
- New & improved themes
- Improved tray icon integration on Linux
- Option to launch Tusk minimized
- Option to autostart Tusk on login
- Ability to hide the sidebar
- Custom Shortcut Keys
- New Log-out option
- Pdf note exporting
- Auto-night mode
- Continuous note navigation
- Markdown cheatsheet
This list reads as a decent set of improvements that help round-out the appeal of using Tusk versus Evernote in a browser tab.
Install Tusk on Ubuntu
As Tusk is available as a Snap app you can install it from the
Ubuntu Snapcraft Store on Ubuntu, Fedora and any other Snap-supporting Linux distro.
sudo snap install tusk --classic
If you’re a fan of manual install methods you can download a traditional installer — available for Windows, macOS, and Linux, including a distro-agnostic AppImage — directly from the project’s Github page:
