Description Jens Knutson 2009-05-01 11:04:49 EDT
Description of problem:

dbus support appears to be absent from the current gnote RPM - barring some significant problem, it ought to be enabled in the build
Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-01 11:11:26 EDT
The last release I tried, it failed to build. Haven't tried yet with the latest build. What does dbus support give you?
Comment 2 Jens Knutson 2009-05-01 11:44:28 EDT
dbus support offers a ton of really nice desktop integration features, at least in Tomboy.  This is Tomboy's dbus API, to give you an idea of what it can do:

AddTagToNote(string uri, string tag_name): bool
CreateNamedNote(string linked_title): string
CreateNote(): string
DeleteNote(string uri): bool
DisplayNote(string uri): bool
DisplayNoteWithSearch(string uri, string search): bool
DisplaySearchWithText(string search_text)
FindNote(string linked_title): string
FindStartHereNote(): string
GetAllNotesWithTag(string tag_name): array string
GetNoteChangeDate(string uri)
GetNoteCompleteXml(string uri): string
GetNoteContents(string uri): string
GetNoteContentsXml(string uri): string
GetNoteCreateDate(string uri)
GetNoteTitle(string uri): string
GetTagsForNote(string uri): array string
Introspect(): string
ListAllNotes(): array string
NoteExists(string uri): bool
RemoveTagFromNote(string uri, string tag_name): bool
SetNoteCompleteXml(string uri, string xml_contents): bool
SetNoteContents(string uri, string text_contents): bool
SetNoteContentsXml(string uri, string xml_contents): bool
Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-01 11:57:19 EDT
The upstream developer has confirmed that dbus option won't work yet. I will enable it when it is actually supported upstream. I am going to close this for now. 

Meanwhile you can find the latest build at

gnote 0.6.1 is now in Rawhide with Dbus support enabled. Let me know if you want a Fedora 11 update.
