How To Install CherryTree 0.34.0 On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, CherryTree is a text editor, with the features of a modern editor, such as syntax highlighting, spell check, export to html, password protection, and many others. The latest version available is CherryTree 0.34.0, which has been released recently, coming with changes:

  • implemented the possibility to embed files of any type in the cherrytree documents: a clip icon image is inserted in the rich text and right clicking on it the file can be saved to a disk location. the clip icon size is configurable in the preferences dialog
  • implemented the possibility to associate links to the images through right click menu item. when the image has a link associated, a colored arrow is visible over the image
  • added right click menu item to insert newline in table cell and restored functionality of the shortcut Ctrl+period
  • added shortcuts for text Foreground and Background color Shift+Alt+F and Shift+Alt+B
  • added shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+1, Ctrl+Alt+2 and Ctrl+Alt+3 for lists bulleted, numbered and todo
  • added shortcuts Ctrl+Plus and Ctrl+Minus to increase/decrease the font of tree and text
  • the number of backups to keep is now configurable
  • added import from EssentialPIM HTML file
  • fixed several bugs
  • handling of cases when dbus is not working properly causing cherrytree not to start, this happens so far only on windows in some cases and may be a firewall related problem. in these cases the centralized instances control is disabled and cherrytree still works

In this article I will show you how to install CherryTree 0.34.0 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Pinguy OS 14.04, Pinguy OS 12.04,  Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, Linux Lite 2.0, LXLE 14.04, Debian Jessie, Debian Wheezy, SparkyLinux, Kwheezy and their derivative systems.

Because it is available via PPA, installing CherryTree 0.34.0 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the cherrytree package. Like this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vincent-c/cherrytree
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install cherrytree

Optional, to remove cherrytree, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove cherrytree

For Debian, we can download the deb package from the official site and install it, via the command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

$ wget www.giuspen.com/software/cherrytree_0.34.0-1_all.deb
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ sudo gdebi cherrytree_0.34.0-1_all.deb

Optional, to remove cherrytree, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove cherrytree
