I'm also getting the "Could not connect to server" error when trying to open Evernote for the first time. It's worth noting that this is on a FRESH Arch install. I have tried twice, on two different machines, each with fresh arch installs with nothing installed past KDE on one, and Cinnamon on the other. Same error on both.

When launching from the command line, here is what it spits out:

I researched this weekend for a solution to get Evernote running.

First, it is recommend (and I can confirm) to use version 5.8.x instead of 5.9 because of various issues including crashes when opening a note. If you want to use 5.9 disable the dwrite (?) library in "winecfg".

Second to get Evernote running I used winetricks to install the "ie8" package. After installation open "wine control" and open the "Internet Settings". Disable in advanced options the marker at SSL3. After that run Evernote.exe and it should open the login window. Be careful though, if you have a lot of images it can crash Evernote.

This is a bug with Windows XP and Evernote that it will try to connect to evernote with SSLv3 if available. Of course the connection is rejected by Evernote since it does not support SSLv3 (as it should). This is not a bug by Evernote alone but by how Windows XP handles encrypted connection. Since Windows 7 does not use SSLv3 by default this is not an issue for Evernote since they simple don't support Windows XP
My guess is, since OpenSSL supports SSL3 by default, wine allows it to use. I don't know how to disable SSLv3 in wine or OpenSSL without patch.

Hope this helps.

This even gave me an Evernote desktop icon!
How wonderfully Windows-esque!

I have all of them also with same version..

gnutls 3.4.9-1
ldb 1.1.24-1
libgcrypt 1.6.5-1
libldap 2.4.43-1
libsasl 2.1.26-7
nettle 3.2-1
openssl 1.0.2.f-1
pam 1.2.1-3

I'll update the deeps soon, after we further investigate and find all of the culprits :)

I strace'd evernote, found out used libs owners and narrowed down to the following suspects:

gnutls 3.4.9-1
ldb 1.1.24-1
libgcrypt 1.6.5-1
libldap 2.4.43-1
libsasl 2.1.26-7
nettle 3.2-1
openssl 1.0.2.f-1
pam 1.2.1-3

Can you test out if installing those solves the issue? An if it does, which ones didn't you already have installed?
I can't go about removing them without going over dependency hell over here :/

waitandbleed commented on 2016-02-20 10:13


$ pacman -Q |grep openssl
lib32-openssl 1.0.2.f-1
openssl 1.0.2.f-1
python2-pyopenssl 0.15.1-2

I tried also to remove ~/.evernote to get clean wine config and still same error :/

Btw. then lib32-openssl and openssl should be in dependecies, right? :)

brunowowk commented on 2016-02-19 23:01

Try installing openssl and maybe lib32-openssl to see if it works

any idea why I am getting "Could not connect to server." error message?

brunowowk commented on 2016-01-03 11:26

Don't flag it out-of-date, people. It's as up to date as it can be, as long as is the latest version that runs well on wine (Platinum rating on Wine HQ, while 5.9.x builds are bronze rated).

It works now!

I had used aurget initially to install. It looks like the wine config got corrupted. I uninstalled, removed the ~/.evernote folder, and did the package install by hand instead of using aurget and it worked.
