Oh, Thanks a lot :D

The 'issue' you told that, talking about opening documents locally, just open the app and in the home page (where we see greeting and recent docuements etc), just drag and drop the local file to the main page and it will automatically open in that app according to the file extension

Also talking about saving to OneDrive, just open OneDrive from the sidebar on the right and just drag and drop the file, it'll upload itself.

Both things work perfectly fine for me, on both Windows and Linux

Also talking about installing it on Zorin OS, Just go to the GitHub repo, and in the releases tab, download the deb file :)

Hi mate just recently purchased a new laptop for my son for university and installed Zorin OS, you might have just solved a massive problem for me. He is using Libreoffice comfortably but was struggling regards Powerpoint, I am testing this out now on Arch it runs fantastic great job. Only 'issue' I can see is you can download documents locally but cannot open documents from your local folders (or just save it to onedrive) You have my vote!

Actually was busy, but fixed now! Do you think something else is wrong?

You could probably do the ln in the actual $pkgdir to $pkgdir as that is what is going to be present in the filesystem afterwards. When writing PKGBUILDs make sure to not touch the actual host filesystem.

@dr460nf1r3 I have fixed the sudo thing, but

Also symlinking outside of $pkgdir is to be avoided!

Actually i am new to AUR so can you please tell where is that issue/how to fix it?

Sudo should not be used in PKGBUILDs. Its breaking the build in chroots completely. Also symlinking outside of $pkgdir is to be avoided!
