Bug Description

[follows from bug #495141: different issue, so different bug]
I didn't know that gnote supports dbus. Neat!
I added gnote support to the tomboy plugin. It will not make it in the 0.2 release, but it will be in 0.3 (code is already frozen)
Check it out with:
bzr branch lp:~gtg-user/gtg/tomboy-gnote-for-0.3
cd tomboy-gnote-for-0.3

Sad part of the story. I can't compile gnote with dbus:
- dbus is absent in karmic package and disabled in gnote's ppa
- compiling gnote from git is now impossible due to a bug with the boost libraries (bug is already open for that)
- compiling gnote's ppa edition from source has a problem during linking, also for the boost libraries.

I believe the tomboy/gnote plugin should work if you get gnote working via dbus, since it's a very small modification in the code. You can check you have dbus support if "qdbus |grep Tomboy" returns something.
If you get that working, please report if the plugin is working or not. If someone tells me how to compile gnote, it would be even better :-D

Thank you much! I'll test it and report the results.
P.S. The same here - freebsd did not have dbus-cpp ports so i'll try to compile it manually.

I'm holding this back until someone has a chance to say that it does work.
