Create a Linux OneDrive client
It would be good to have an official OneDrive client that would allow us to sync files to Linux based machines in the same way as is possible for Windows/OS X.
We appreciate the interest but are not doing this at this time.

This should have been released by now
Microsoft has released Microsoft teams Skype on Linux yet still no one drive or M365 how long must we wait should we just leave the Microsoft echo system it was bad enough when Microsoft killed off windows phone
is there a bata for one drive
I too would find it very helpful to have the OneDrive sync available for Linux.

Here is a more active Linux client request, with more than 4000 votes so far:
Consider voting here as well.

How about 5 years latter, Are you plan to make a Linux Client?

Since it has been five years from your reply and the thread has been locked preventing upvoting for who knows how long, about about another look?
Hi, so there is already native MS Teams client for Linux. Any plans for OneDrive ?
Is here actually anybody from Microsoft, who sees what people ask for ?
I would love to vote this up, but it seems blocked.
I would love this too. My school uses OneDrive, but I end up using Google Drive more since I am able to easily link it to Linux and isn't platform dependent. It's a shame, since the school offers it for free. I tried to use it, and found it frustrating in comparison to other options for group projects.

Yes, please. And while you are at it, please add password protection support to .odt files.

It would be great if we linux users had OneDrive on our computers.
there are so many packaging alternatives today, such as snap, flatpaks, appimage in which you would work across multiple distributions.

It seems, this is an option

The lack of a Linux client (compared to Google and Amazon offerings) continues to impede adoption in research and education areas where Linux is predominant (HPC, bioinformatics, etc); this is unfortunate as it would make sharing results considerably simpler in these areas.
At time of writing (Apr 2019), there is at least one open source implementation of a OneDrive client for Linux, and is readily available through typical Linux software distribution channels (apt / yum / etc) over multiple Linux distributions. The API key must of course be authorized by a domain admin before the application can be used, which makes adoption difficult under managed environments. If an official OneDrive client for Linux continues to not be in the cards (4 years since last post on this thread), perhaps this could be adopted as a semi-official alternative until such time as an official client can be put forward.
Dropbox figured out how to sync to Linux... can't Microsoft keep up with a small company like Dropbox?
There are already two open source clients that cover this: rclone (https://rclone.org) and onedrive (https://github.com/abraunegg/onedrive). The former is good for mounting OneDrive to a user folder on disk, the latter installs as a systemd service and keeps a local folder in sync with what's up in the cloud.
+1 Também me dava jeito!
+1 for a Linux client. MS needs to step up and show us the love they keep talking about.
Access for Linux Web clients to OneDrive and Office 365 is needed. I don't really see the need for the OneDrive APP in Linux if the web client is made available, this would increase collaboration in large organizations with a substantial mix of both Windows and Linux users.

Lack of conditional access for Linux web client is what's preventing us from being able to use MS products on Linux.
I also would like this.

PLEASE ADD ONEDRIVE APP FOR LINUX - IT WOULD FETCH LOTS OF CLIENTS AS WELL AS POTENTIAL CLIENTS.
+1 FOR A LINUX ONEDRIVE CLIENT APP - THEN WE CAN USE LIBREOFFICE OR WHATEVER TO ACCESS OUR FILES AND STORE THEM SAFELY WITHOUT WORRY OF POTENTIAL RISKS.
+1 for a Linux OneDrive client. This should help drive subscriptions. I've been comparing storage costs recently and OneDrive is very competitive pricewise, but the lack of a Linux client is a blocker for a lot of potential users.
