P3X OneNote is a cloud-based note-taking application and is considered as an exact alternative to the well known Microsoft OneNote application. I’m using the term exact alternative because you will be using your Microsoft account in the P3X app.
it is actually a browser window to Microsoft’s OneNote application and so can be termed as an unofficial Microsoft OneNote client for Linux system. We shall discuss three methods that we can use to install P3X OneNote on your Linux system.
Install the P3X OneNote using
But before starting in the installation process, we need to make sure that your system is up-to-date using the following commands:
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade
Installing P3X OneNote Using Snap
Step 1. By default, the snapd package is already installed on Ubuntu. Use the following command to make sure that snapd is already installed on your machine.
In case the snapd package is not installed on your machine, you can install it using the next command:
sudo apt install snapd
To install snap on Debian:
sudo apt install snapd
To install snap on Fedora:
sudo dnf install snapd sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
To install snap on Arch Linux:
sudo pacman -S snapd sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket
Step 2. Use the snap command:
sudo snap install p3x-onenote
Next, the installation process will begin, as shown in the below screenshot.
After installation finishes successfully you will get a message like the below one.
Step 3. Now from the left dock open the show applications button and search for p3x OneNote, and then open it.
Step 4. Use your Microsoft account to sign in and start taking notes.
Installing P3X OneNote Using AppImage
AppImage is similar to Snap, but it is a self-contained application that can be executed on almost all Linux distros.
Step 1. First of all, we need to create a new directory.
mkdir -p applications
Step 2. Move to the newly-created directory.
Step 3. Download the application.
If the “wget” package is not installed, use the following command to install it:
sudo apt install wget
When the download finishes successfully, you will get a message like the below one:
Step 4. To be able to start p3x OneNote, you have to change the permissions on the downloaded package using the following command.
chmod +x P3X-OneNote-2019.10.253.AppImage
Step 5. After updating the new permissions successfully, you should be able to launch the application.
Step 6. Now you can use your Microsoft account to login and start taking notes.
Installing P3X OneNote Using NPM
Besides the previous two installation methods, there is the npm method. In this method, the p3x OneNote will be built up from scratch using the npm tool. But be careful the npm version contains some bugs. This may lead to some errors, and it may not work correctly.
Step 1. To install the npm on Ubuntu:
sudo apt install npm
To install the npm on Debian:
sudo apt-get install npm
To install the npm on Fedora:
sudo dnf install npm
To install the npm on Arch Linux:
sudo pacman -S npm
Step 2. Next, use the npm tool to install the application
sudo npm install -g p3x-onenote --unsafe-perm=true --allow-root
Step 3. When the building process finishes successfully, use the following command to open the application.
Step 4. Finally, use your Microsoft account to login and take some notes.
Congratulations you have just installed the P3X OneNote.
