Linux AppImage Instructions:

An AppImage is a self-contained instance of the application. Upon download, please move this file to a more permanent location on your system. You will need to keep this file for as long as you intend to use Standard Notes.

We'll move this file from your downloads to your home directory:

mv ~/Downloads/standard-notes-2.3.13-x86_64.AppImage ~/standard-notes-2.3.13-x86_64.AppImage
cd ~

Now, make the file executable:

chmod a+x standard-notes-2.3.13-x86_64.AppImage

Finally, run the application:

./standard-notes-2.3.13-x86_64.AppImage

If you're prompted to create desktop shortcuts, choose Yes.

Why 5 years?

The 5-year plan is our take on a sustainable, long term plan. It provides you with all of Extended’s benefits for a long time to come, and also helps support Standard Notes develop a secure application, both technically and financially. Our revenue source comes exclusively from our customers, and not from advertisers or venture capitalists. This ensures our priorities are always aligned with yours. We’ve marked the 5-year plan at a steep initial discount as a sort of short-term “capital raise”.
