Taking Notes Between Linux and Windows

less than 1 minute read

Description:

Saving notes between Linux and Windows can be done easily through a client such as Google Drive installed on both machines, Shared Folders through Virtual Box, or a number of methods. I found the easiest to be to just save to Google Docs.

To Resolve:

  1. Create blah.txt on desktop, paste in:

    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
    [Desktop Entry]  
    Version=1.0  
    Encoding=UTF-8  
    Name=Firefox Web Browser  
    Exec=firefox %u -new-tab https://docs.google.com/document/your/link/here  
    Icon=firefox  
    Terminal=false  
    Type=Application  
    StartupWMClass=Firefox-bin  
    MimeType=text/html;text/xml;application/xhtml+xml;application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml;text/mml;  
    StartupNotify=true  
    X-Desktop-File-Install-Version=0.15  
    Categories=Network;WebBrowser;
    
  2. Save as – Firefox.desktop
