The handy standalone app.


Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions about the app are answered below. If you still have questions after reading the FAQ, please contact us.

Which Linux operating systems are supported?

We support Ubuntu and Fedora (both 32-bit and 64-bit).

How do I verify that the RPM is signed by Remember The Milk?

You can import the Remember The Milk package signing key with:

$ sudo rpm --import

Note: the rememberthemilk package sets up a yum repository entry in /etc/yum/repos.d/rememberthemilk.repo which verifies this key before applying any future updates.

How do I enable Smart Add for desktop?

With the desktop app, you can use a keyboard shortcut to bring up Smart Add, wherever you are.

In the Linux app, this feature is disabled by default, as unfortunately it can affect the performance of the rest of the desktop app.

We're looking into a solution for this, but if you'd like to try it anyway in the meantime, here's how you can enable this feature for the Linux app:

  1. Open "/usr/share/applications/rememberthemilk.desktop"
  2. Change Exec=/opt/RememberTheMilk/rememberthemilk %U to Exec=/opt/RememberTheMilk/rememberthemilk --disable-gpu --enable-transparent-visuals --force-enable-global-smart-add %U

Note: You can also copy /usr/share/applications/rememberthemilk.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications/rememberthemilk.desktop and edit that.

Once enabled, you can use Ctrl + Alt + M to quickly access Smart Add.

Prefer a different keyboard shortcut? No problem, head to 'Account settings' then 'Desktop' to change it.
