If I am not wrong, Tomboy comes with gNS...
Recently rms has suggested avioiding mono and, also If I am not wrong, I
remember a discussion about the mono issues here, so maybe Tomboy will
be romoved in next gNS releases...

Anyway, I have uninstalled Tomboy and replaced it with gnote.

Both are available in the gNS repositories.

Finally let me suggest you using GNU Icecat (a free version of Mozilla
Firefox)! Here some tips and tricks to improve GNU Icecat:
