Notion is a great tool for creating, planning, sharing, and collaborating with others on team projects. Notion has apps available for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. While developing a Linux app makes sense because of the vast number of people that use it as an operating system, is there an official Notion app for Linux? In this article, we’ll find out.
Is Notion Available for Linux Ubuntu?
Notion is a note-taking app for Windows, macOS, and web browsers that can be used in place of Evernote or OneNote. Notion, on the other hand, is not yet officially supported on Linux based operating systems such as Ubuntu. However, there are third-party unofficial solutions available.
notion-enhancer is one app that has Linux based app for Debian, Ubuntu, Pop!_OS, and Linux Mint. The app has vanilla as well as an enhanced version available. You can do everything with it — from creating databases to collaborating with other members of the team.
You can find the installation instruction, features, app files any other information about the app on its GitHub page.
The other Linux-based app is known as Lotion and it works quite fine just like the official Notion app for Windows. The only thing that’s broken is the support for offline access.
Since it is not an official app, you have to use it with caution. We’ll recommend that you don’t upload any sensitive information using it.
A More Secured Notion App for Linux
If you are looking for a secured solution to run Notion on Linux, there’s a workaround.
If you’re on Ubuntu or can install from .deb files, you can install the app from here. It works flawlessly and comes with basic offline support.
The only downside of this solution is that you’ll have to manually update the app each time there’s an update.
