    You can use the `gvfs-info` tool from the `gvfs-bin` package to query files, e.g. to retrieve all metadata:

    $ gvfs-info -a “metadata::*” .
    metadata::annotation: This is the note.

    Thank you so much. I was stumped on this for a bit until I found your blog, using the big “G” :) Now I just have to figure out how to back them up to dropbox so that when I restore an ubuntu install in the future, all my notes come back. I wonder if I have to allow dropbox 777 access to the “gvfs-metadata” folder. You saved me so much time though. Thanks again!
