A Linux compatible version of OneNote
After downloading the
AppImage, make it an executable.
mkdir -p $HOME/opt
mv ~/Downloads/p3x-onenote-a.b.c-x86_64.AppImage $HOME/opt/
chmod +x $HOME/opt/p3x-onenote-a.b.c-x86_64.AppImage
Then you can run it
It then actually integrates itself into the menus and it will auto update itself.
The app can be found on ElectronJs Apps
You want to install via NPM...

P3X OneNote Linux is, actually, an independent browser window for the online OneNote. You can use this program without having to clutter your browser. The main functions are:
- that is independent from any browser, as it works in it's own process

- The OneNote language is controlled by Microsoft, but the Electron UI is now able to use any language. The default is only implemented now English. If you want to request a new language, there is a
./translation/en.js file, if you create a file like
./translation/zn.js (Chinese) and implement these keys, I will add a permanent setting in the menu (
- Allows using multiple instances (with some quirks, as the config will not be synchronized using multiple instances at once, so it can provide wrong results - to make it to work, configure with 1 instance, exit, then use multiple instances).
- Multiple instances is not recommended (it was requested and provided).
Sometimes, it is possible, that OneNote Online does not load properly, the solutions is to quit and start the program again.
Although the main page's language can be changed, it reverts back when an actual page is accessed.
This is being investigated.
Since Electron v3, the tray left click is executing as the right click, Electron bug.
If you try to build the app with AppImage, you have to change from
devDependencies, this is because it is created to be able to run this app from
NPM instead of an
