With C6 Gnome and C7 Mate you can right-click on a file icon, select Properties, select Notes, and write notes about your file.
Does anyone know if those notes can be directly transferred between C6 Gnome and C7 Mate? I’m looking into upgrading someone’s desktop machine to C7 and she has a lot of notes attached to her files that she doesn’t want to lose.
After doing a bit of experimenting, I think the notes are actually stored in a file named ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/home
Can I just copy that “home” file into the new C7 Mate desktop and have the file notes move in automatically, or do I have to somehow extract the notes and re-import them?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
