Deskbar makes friends with Tomboy

Hi there, again. Recently I've been working on my first deskbar plugin and now is the time to finally give it some freedom!
As you can guess it's a tomboy plugin for deskbar, so you can search your notes in your favorite place.
There's still some work to be done, but it's usable at the current state. For those of you who love screenies here's a sneak peek:

So yes, it does a search by title and tags. It doesn't work with history yet, and won't open your notes if tomboy is not running (it uses dbus).

Get it while it's hot

You can download version 0.1 here. Tested only on Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon.


There are 2 places you can copy the plugin to. You can copy it to /usr/lib/deskbar-applet/modules-2.20-compatible/ if you want it system-wide (requires root) or to .gnome2/deskbar-applet/modules-2.20-compatible/ in your home directory if you want it just for a single user.


Please leave your wishes/bug reports/whatever as a comment and I'll try to look into it and improve the plugin.
