I had to install python2-unity-singlet from the PKGBUILD here -

I still don't understand what else I have to do to actually get into the application. I can load all three programs but the tray icon doesn't give me an option to create anything. I can go into setup and authorize everpad. I can see everpad being authorized in the evernote site.

What am I missing here?

I believe I need to add python2-unity-singlet as an optdepends because I think it's supposed to work without the -lens. I haven't been able to get mine to authorize correctly, either. I am able to authorize it, but if I close out, and start it back, it will be unauthorized, again. My biggest issue with debugging it at the moment is that I can't start everpad-provider by itself. It throws an error: QWidget: Cannot create a QWidget when no GUI is being used. I'm still trying to figure that one out. everpad-provider seems to run for me when I just start everpad.

Installed python2-unity-singlet with the PKGBUILD at

Then installed libunity from AUR. I can now start everpad, everpad-lens and everpad-provider with no problem. However, I still can't get into the program itself. I see the everpad icon. When I click on it I get two options "Settings and Management" and "Exit". I can go into the settings and authorize the app which does work (I verified on evernote site).

How do I actually open the GUI?

I was confusing myself because I was trying to install everpad from the git repository. I've removed that and installed everpad from AUR. Turns out I was missing python-magic.

Now I can start 'everpad-provider' and 'everpad' with no errors. However, when I run 'everpad-lens' I get the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/everpad-lens", line 9, in <module>
load_entry_point('everpad==2.3dev', 'console_scripts', 'everpad-lens')()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 343, in load_entry_point

from singlet.lens import SingleScopeLens, IconViewCategory, ListViewCategory
ImportError: No module named singlet.lens

Any idea?

Okay. I'm a little further along with this. Turns out that we need python-regex which doesn't appear to be available in aur (although there is a package called python2-regex-hg but I'm not sure what that is).


$ yaourt -S python2-pip
# pip2 install regex

Now everpad starts but all I get is an icon in my tray but I can't seem to get the app to open. The tray icon gives me "Settings and Management" and "Exit". I can go in and authorize the app but that's it.

Just tried installing and getting the same error as snovik.

I've taken a look at the dependencies mentioned here and I think I have installed what I should:

aur/python-magic 5.10-1 [installed] (23)
community/python2-beautifulsoup3 3.2.1-1 [installed]
extra/python2-dbus 1.1.1-2 [installed]

I updated with new dependencies. Still have the same problem

Ok ia had the same issues as karlinux, I needed after wards to insstal python- magic and python2-keyring, python-magic should be for python3 but it is a pre compiled version for python2 if you look at the pkg it is a bit messy but works. maybe swithch teh dependancy over to that or we need to sort out python2-magic to work.

snostorm commented on 2013-01-11 04:08

snovik, I am working out issues as well do you have python2-keyring installed, that might be part of the problem below. I still have a problem with python2-magic but it should get you over the current hurdle

snovik commented on 2013-01-10 02:34

I have another problem. Is it you or me now? :)
