  • I tried installing the package onedrive and it works just fine

    sudo apt-get install onedrive

    post install, run command


    This will provide a URI and ask you for a URI in return. Click the URI and login to your onedrive account (this package works only with personal onedrive for now). Good thing is it also works with two factor authentication - no app password is needed.

    The URI will show a blank page, copy the web URI and paste it into the terminal where the onedrive command prompted for uri.

    That's it. The tool will download entire Onedrive contents to $HOME/OneDrive directory.

    The drive can be sync'ed in real time with

    onedrive -m

    I found the above command useful.

    Any time simply run onedrive to sync the files. Use manual to find much more options to configure the sync to your need

    man onedrive
