Found a decent application to publish articles on WordPress from the Ubuntu desktop: gnome-blog. Not too feature-rich but OK for quick posts. Available in Synaptic Package Manager.


  • Simple to use interface
  • WYSIWYG styled text support
  • Panel popup allows entries can be written gradually over the course of a day
  • Spell checking
  • Drag and drop support for images

To install on Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install gnome-blog
