    Check out the Scrapbook Firefox extension. Even though it's not a complete alternative, you may be able to replace BasKet by using it together with some other apps (such as Tomboy or another wiki).

    Re: Is there a Basket Notepads alternative for GNOME?

    I've no idea if this is of interest, but... I've been on the hunt for a heiarchial notes app myself after having been used to the late-great old open-source Win prog, KeyNote, which like BasKet, is also unfortunately unique.

    (My keynote thread)
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3146207

    And now I'm running the formerly blazing fast KeyNote as a semisluggish WINE app until I can migrate to the next best thing I've found for the express purpose of being a tree-type writing app, NoteCase. It's lacking the multi-tree tabs, but it's light, cross-platform and works as well on my xubuntu PC as the kubuntu PC. Similar and of good performance on my setup:
    Gjots
    Kjots (KDE)
    Desktop wiki sorts:
    Zim
    Tomboy (Gnome)
    Not-so-actively maintained:
    Tuxcards
    Newton
    If you're into Java there's a couple Java note apps. They weren't my bag.

    If you want a whole 'nother approach, the LaTeX-based LyX can do a lot. If you use the multi-format attatchment capabilities of BasKet, nothing will match it. The closest thing may be kdissert, a mind-mapping app?

    In the unlikely event anyone is interested ...strike NoteCase off the recommended list. Has a wittle, minor issue: It spontaineously dumped all of the text on every note except the very first paragraph without warning.

    *sigh.

    Until now, nothing beats Basket Notepads. It still is my most favorite app. LOL

    Re: Is there a Basket Notepads alternative for GNOME?

    although im not quite sure what basket-notes is..
    aside from tomboy, Zim wiki notes are really cool
    as the name suggests it writes down notes with wiki like functionality that recursively link to each other.. i thought it was pretty cool haha

    Dropping in a note that NoteCase has been vindicated; the problems enountered were with version 1.5.8 and now having tested subsequent releases 1.6.5 and 1.6.6, both versions work perfectly. So it's back on the note-taking app list, and has an edge on most in being cross platform (works in ubuntu and windows), offering encryption and is reasonably light and straightforward to use.

    KeyNote is still the best though, even via WINE, and after looking a bit further, nope there is no other like BasKet Note Pads either.

    I rather like zim, but honestly Basket beats it out of the water in some areas

    I can't get basket notepads to install, it keeps telling me missing dependancies and I look through the config.log and I can't make sense of it all.
