Joplin for PopOS

Hi,

Do you guys think PopOS supports Joplin? Will it work? I'm thinking of changing my main OS to Pop. I'm tired of Microsoft's data BS. :joy: Especially when you log on to your Microsoft account if you want to do simple things. The security redundancy is crazy. They ask for your username and password so many times! The only way to stop it is either giving away your mobile information and more for the company. It's freaking crazy! I also don't like the shift of Windows 10. I remember back in the day with XP and W7 you don't really need an online account to run the OS. But now creating an online account is mandatory just to run the OS and when you do, your data will be watched and you have to go through a difficult/long task on finding under settings to turn of this stalker data option. Anyway...

Peace,
A.H.

Pop OS is built on top of Ubuntu, which I can confirm works with Joplin! I can’t guarantee it will work, but I don’t see any issues either.

@a_hermann, Pop OS is basically a clone of Ubuntu with a different theme, some drivers baked into it and some default settings different. As @CalebJohn said there should be no issues. Anyway, welcome to the Linux community. You can PM me if you want help regarding Linux or its usage!

Using the Joplin Linux installation script on PopOS! works fine.

No it isn’t. I don’t have a Microsoft account and use Windows 10 just with a local account. Disconnecting from the Internet when installing Windows 10 allows you to proceed with just a local account. I don’t know if you can backtrack once you have an MS signon without reinstalling.

Yes you are absolutely right. In fact if you are familiar with regedit then you can pull off even cooler stuff. :wink:

Or use O&O’s ShutUp10.

IIRC Win10 Pro still lets you create a “local account” whereas the home version does not and so the network disconnection trick is required.

I am familiar with Regedit but it's too technical for me to understand. When I start running the program. I don't know where to start! :rofl:

People like me don't know if what you did is possible. You proved me wrong. I think ordinary people like me wouldn't know that you can create an account offline or disabling programs in regedit. Hope I get to learn these soon!

I think you are mistaken about one thing. Everyone over here are ordinary people. We have just gathered a different skillset over a period of time. You can gain those skills too! And YouTube is also a great place for collecting knowledge of this sort although it does take a bit of experience to distinguish between spam and the real things
