How to: Back up your XPad notes with Dropbox

XPad is my go-to sticky note application on Ubuntu. By default, notes are automatically saved to ~/.config/xpad, and if you want to back your notes up with Dropbox, you can make a link in your Dropbox folder to where the stickies are saved (credit to MathUHenry).

This command will back up your stickies by syncing them to Dropbox:

ln -s ~/.config/xpad/ ~/Dropbox/xpad/
