Main Features

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
  • it provides a tray, that allows you to close your browser while it keeps running in the tray
  • the data is cached and is faster than always opening a new window
  • it allows you to sign in with the corporate or the personal login
  • when there is a new update, it auto updates itself (Only in the AppImage version.)
  • the program allows to use other Microsoft online applications, but the dedicated purpose is to use OneNote

Verbose feature info

  • You are able to set a proxy in the settings menu.
  • There is now a menu called Corporate home
  • The OneNote language is controlled by Microsoft, and we try to work with Oneline OneNote, but we are getting a hard time, but the Electron UI is now able to use any language.
  • 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).

Downloadable installer

AppImage

https://github.com/patrikx3/onenote/releases

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
$HOME/opt/p3x-onenote-a.b.c-x86_64.AppImage 

It then actually integrates itself into the menus and it will auto update itself.

The app can be found on ElectronJs Apps
