If you kindly look above i said and i quote " you can get just about anything working with work-arounds "

To point you in a direction to help though a work around as such, since the variables involve MS would be to look into creating a copy of the ".ics" file to transfer to thunderbird.
That is not a sync solution 😆 Is that your best answer?

So you want an answer on how to make a Microsoft product play nice with an open source one. This is not fixing issues with hardware and Linux. Your other thread asking produced no results either did it. Meaning you have no answers, so I'm not sure what you find funny about that, or are you laughing at yourself as well. Rudeness does not set well with me, especially from those trying to make themselves look like anything other than they are.

My advice was meant to help you not make you look a certain way. Manjaro is an Arch derivative and a stable rolling release one at that. If you would have looked into it further you probably would have gotten that printer working was what I was trying to convey.

You asked for a work around, I just presented one to you. Your welcome.

Import is not a sync. It is as valid and helpful as saying that a workaround for using Linux would be using Windows

No, but thanks for the suggestion. I googled a bit and PopOS looks interesting. I might stay on Mint Cinnamon. Have to see how much trouble branded powerpoints and word documents generate with Libre Office.
Add the latest libre office through ppa so you don't have any errors/ compatibility issues with Ms office docs, XLS and so on.
  • You can install and upgrade to the latest Fresh version using the official LibreOffice PPA. Open a terminal and run the below commands in Ubuntu or Linux Mint.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt update && sudo apt install libreoffice
  • To downgrade LibreOffice and remove the PPA, run the below commands from the terminal sequentially.
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt install ppa-purge && sudo ppa-purge ppa:libreoffice/ppa
