In this video I walk you through how to set up microsoft office (especially onenote) on you ubuntu linux device

I'm really fond of this software and couldn't find anything that even closely resembles it on linux. Keep in mind that several features don't work. Here are the ones that I'm aware of that don't work 

  • Synching with onedrive
  • Copying-pasting whilst preserving formatting

Debugging/Known Errors

  • DW20.exe error whilst copy-pasting --> Go to playonlinux, click close and then run again.
