Gnote and GNOME Shell
 
Hi

Gnote was one of the default icons in the GNOME Panel and in GNOME
Shell, the sidebar doesn't have it and it seems that starting it
manually puts it in the bottom (message tray?). How do I make it start
by default and what is the recommendation for it to integrate with GNOME
Shell properly? It seems that in the overview mode, sometimes the icons
are not easy or impossible to click (applicable to Gnote, Xchat etc) Is
it intended design that it be visible only in the overview mode?

Also, Gnote package includes the applet. Should this be split up from
Gnote and not installed by default since GNOME Shell doesn't support
applets?

I'll ask Jon to give his thoughts too, but I think the basic
recommendations are

- don't use a statusicon
- make it a real application
- don't start it by default
- integrate the hotkeys properly with the control-center key bindings
- arrange for gnote to be activated when the keybindings are used

I think we probably don't need the applet anymore, even in fallback
mode.

Thanks for that. Filed a note upstream at
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=640430

I think I can continue including the applet as long as it is supported
in the fallback mode. I expect there will considerable users of it for
systems that don't support GNOME Shell or out of preference. I will
look into splitting it up for the time being.
