To Install OneDrive on Ubuntu


Solution 1

After a while till today, I've just tried again and everything's fine, It's running. I think, there's a difference here, I installed the java7 by following from the instruction: ORACLE JAVA INSTALLER CONFLICTING WITH APT BUG FIXED [UBUNTU 14.04]

Solution 2

I've written a Java Client for OneDrive which might be a good alternative if you continue to have problems.

    To install OneDrive on Ubuntu, I've followed the instruction from here: OneDrive-D Syncs Files to and from Microsoft

    The installation seems right, till the end, when the "preferences" window appear, I clicked on the "Connect to the" buttion: enter image description here

    An error occured:

    :~$ onedrive-prefs NOT SANDBOXED [ERROR:flash/platform/pepper/common/pep_process.cpp(19)] CHECK(g_process_type == PROCESS_TYPE_UNKNOWN) failed java version "1.7.0_55" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.7) (7u55-2.4.7-1ubuntu1) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode) Aborted (core dumped)

    How to solve it?

      The install script does not mention Java. I think it would be best if you asked the devs directly:

      Do you have java installed?
