[solved]OneDrive under Debian 10 Gnome

Postby Heliosstyx » 2020-02-05 12:16

What is the best way to use Microsoft OneDrive under Debian 10 Gnome? There is no Debian 10 package for OneDrive. I would prefer the easiest way to use it automatically, whenever something has been changed. Thank you for your advices. :mrgreen:

There is an 'unofficial' client available and the installation process seems straightforward:
https://github.com/abraunegg/onedrive/blob/master/docs/INSTALL.md

Don't know if it suits your needs ...

Another alternative is to backport the package from sid:
https://packages.debian.org/en/sid/onedrive

For backporting see: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=38976

Thank you @ChrisDB for your help. I have never done this before, what are the common pitfalls when I do this, following your instructions to build this "onedrive"-package from Sid for Debian 10?

The 'SimpleBackportCreation' link is a good start.

I'm afraid it will be a trial and error path, but it'll be worth it in the end.
Common pitfalls? Depends on the package. Tackle the obstacles when they occur. I myself searched the web and this forum for answers. In case of doubt, you can still ask the forum members for help. :D

Thank you Chris for your great help. I will build the package in the next days and I will report back the results. :mrgreen:

Thank you Chris. I promised to report my results building OneDrive from SID: It works fine and all works very well. The two mentioned guides are correct, only the Debian wiki with switch -t is not working for me, without switch -t all is ok. :mrgreen:
