    Smile I wrote a program and need user feedback if installation went o.K.

    Hello,

    i wrote a post-it application called "papersavers" that is ready for use, but I am not sure if the install works correct for everybody.
    Could you please install it from my ppa and give feedback in this thread?
    You should use Ubuntu 13.04 Raring, because there are only packages for this version on Launchpad at the moment.
    If it installed, after starting you should see an indicator in the launcher to create new notes.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rusche/projects
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install papersavers

    Thank you very much!

    Now that already 100 people saw this thread, is nobody willing to help me?

    Doesn't look that way at this point. Please wait twenty four hours before bumping your post.

    Most users are not in the habit of installing PPAs from unknown and untrusted sources. It doesn't help that this is your first post. It may help if you give a little detail about yourself and perhaps a link to your website or something else, if you have one.

    Give it time. A fellow dev might be able to give you some tips for the best way of getting it tested (making the PPA accessible from a trusted site might help). Getting involved on Launchpad might also be a good idea.

    Good luck.

    Also I think it would help to give a full description of what your app will do.

    Yes I see your point. It is my first post because I was more active on stackoverflow and askubuntu and thought this place here a better one for my question.

    Let be assured that this package is clean.

    It is a post-it application that comes with an indicator in the panel and aims to deliver a minimalistic visual experience, with a lot of settings to tweak, and offers outstanding features like

    - keep on desktop (no minimize, optional)
    - print
    - hyperlinks (but not blue underlined - hold ctrl and click)
    - secret notes
    - synchronisation (via Cloud, say Ubuntu1 or Dropbox)
    - import/export
    - easy internationalisation
    - multiple cases for startup
    - and the usual ones like lock, change color/font and so on

    Here is a gallery with some informative pictures: http://www.abload.de/gallery.php?key=sM2QaLzB

    Find attached one of the pictures.

    Now I've copied the binaries to other distro series: Quantal, Precise and Saucy, should be running the same like on Raring. Perhaps it takes some time on Launchpad to take effect.

    Yes thanks, I have already made a hint to OMGUbuntu and Webupd8 but they did not post about it yet and perhaps won't.

    When your ppa gets updated I will give it a try.
