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-d-x86_64.AppImage $HOME/opt/ chmod +x $HOME/opt/p3x-onenote-a.b.c-d-x86_64.AppImage Then you can run it HOME/opt/p3x-onenote-a.b.c-d-x86_64.AppImage &
It then actually integrates itself into the menus and it will auto update itself.
