Multiple Microsoft Onedrive install methods - which do you prefer?

Post by Eclipsenow+ »

Hi all,
I found this video interesting but a little beyond me.
Maybe it's quarantine-brain.
Uses tool Rclone
(It's terminal but he's running Arch / Manjaro terminal so we'd use "sudo apt install rclone" instead - any other terminal changes to what he does because I'm a total newb.)

This one was more specifically Linux Mint and seemed a little easier to understand.
(Covers Drop Box and Google first so I timed it at Microsoft.)

Which do you prefer? Any other guides on this?

I prefer not using Microsoft products if I can help it.

Sure but:
  • my home business has this anyway
  • It will reduce my psychological dependence on Apple's Time Machine backup
  • 1 terabit storage for free!

I use the app "Onedrive" from the software repository. It installs like any app, but need setting up in the terminal.
- Go watch the hompage linked to it.

The 'skilion' repo appears to have been abandoned in 2018 and contains many defects that put you at risk of data loss and corruption if you use it. The original author is totally uncontactable despite numerous efforts by myself and others.

If you wish to use the latest code which contains numerous fixes and enhancements you need to clone & build from this repo: https://github.com/abraunegg/onedrive

To be notified of new releases / bug fixes please also watch the new repo.

Major differences / Enhancements:
- Existing bugs with 'skilion' client fixed
- File upload / download validation to ensure data integrity
- SharePoint / Office 365 Shared Libraries added
- Desktop notifications via libnotify
- Dry-run capability to test configuration changes
- Prevent major OneDrive accidental data deletion after configuration change
- Support for National cloud deployments (Microsoft Cloud for US Government, Microsoft Cloud Germany, Azure and Office 365 operated by 21Vianet in China)
- Support for OneDrive Personal and OneDrive Business Shared Folders

Not specific to OneDrive but I've used rclone for years for my Google Drive integration and it works very well.
For custom Nemo actions, useful scripts for the Cinnamon desktop, and Cinnamox themes visit my Github pages.

Didn't know that. Thanks for the info.

If I use the ppa, the dependencies will follow? (excuse me, nooby question)
