    I do, but couldn't find it in the repos. I downloaded the source from their website and run a ./installer and it throws an error at me.

    Nevermind, I'm an idiot, found it this morning. I swear I looked last night.

    (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?
    Have you looked at TreeLine? It may be too structured for you, but I thought I would mention it.

    I am just starting to investigate the options and I haven't selected my tools yet. But like many others I want BasKet Note Pads for GNOME!

    What problems do you have running it under GNOME? I am thinking about trying BasKet myself - it seems like exactly what I'm looking for.

    Re: Is there a Basket Notepads alternative for GNOME?

    i use Tomboy and Sticky Notes for all my notetaking.

    i haven't ever used Basket Notepads, but the reason i replied is from looking at a screenshot it reminds me of a windows program called TreePad Lite. i just tried TreePad Lite with wine and it looks like it works, it's also a standalone, none install, program. so eventhough i bet no one wants it it's very easy to try then delete if you don't like it! lol

    I'm trying to avoid KDE apps so I don't run KDE libs in my GNOME session. I have a slow laptop.

    Hardy's version of Tomboy has the actual "notebook" functionality that was BasKet's big one-up over Tomboy until now

    I am running Hardy and I just installed BasKet today. BasKet still looks 100 times better than Tomboy to me.
