Hi all, I have tried unsuccessfully many times to use OneNote in PlayOnLinux.
Got as far as installing it, and when I try to open it I Get this Error.
Not sure how to get past this point as I have not installed Windows, but trying to run OneNote without it.
Do I have to install Windows for it to run?
Hoping there is a simple way to sort it out
Did you actually do what it says?
this page indicates that wine compatibility with onenote isn’t great:
Hi cordx, I also saw that on winehq, so I have uninstalled onenote from playonlinux. No way could I get it to work, had it working a few Linux distros back but can’t remember which one. I also tried using a virtual box but also ran into problems. Guess I’ll just have to rewrite all the info using Libre or Cherrytree.
Thanks for the response.
i’ve not used either, but cherrytree has some good reviews on this site so hopefully that will be a good fit
There might be a way around it if you try installing it via flatpack which usually has the latest packages. I don’t know if wine is available through there as I don’t use wine. I used to use it, but I don’t use anything from Microsoft apart from fonts. I did come across these the other day as I was looking for something else and in my usual way got side tracked - don’t know if any of these will help. https://www.linuxlinks.com/onenotealternatives/
Thanks for the replies, I am using Cherrytree for the moment, and also will take a look at Tree Sheets to see how it compares.
Maybe I should leave the topic open in case someone finds a way to open onenote files so I can get my info back. Here’s hoping.
Good idea. It will be interesting to see if someone does and adds to our knowledge base about things.
OneNote seems to be very particular for Windows systems, because
that uses Desktop Experience, and others dozens things
