So, I'm working on Word Online, and I want to be able to open the .docx files in LibreOffice on Linux while still storing them in my OneDrive.

When I go to hit the "Open in Word" button, it tells me that I need a browser plugin to make it work. Of course, when I go to get the browser plugin, its a Windows executable, because Microsoft.

So, has someone hacked the system and written a plugin that will make this work, or do I need to do it myself?

I'm running Xubuntu 14.04 (made for an i386 processor arch, which dates my computer a bit), with LibreOffice 5.0 and Firefox 40.0 + Canonical mods and Chromium 44.0.2403.89.

An equivalent question might be, is there a way to set up a OneDrive as a network drive or remote server on Linux?

    You can map OneDrive as a network drive. See link for details: eightforums.com/tutorials/… The link is for Windows mapping, you would just need to map the address in Linux – InterLinked Jun 6 '16 at 10:17

Here you go:

I wouldn't say it's perfect, but it is very useful especially if you don't want to download the file even on windows computers
