This is how I got OneNote 2010 up and working on Ubuntu 14.04 without any issues.

1) Install using PlayOnLinux, option Office 2010.
2) When trying to open OneNote 2010, the "Desktop Experience" error message pops up.
3) Download and Install via playonlinux (on the same drive as MsOffice 2010) the MS Office 2010 Service Pack 1.
4) I couldn't install it completely, an error appeared. However, now OneNote 2010 opens up.
5) If I close OneNote and tryed to open again, an error appeared saying that it was already open. This is because the ONENOTE.EXE program is still running.
6) I opened up the PlayOnLinux Shortcut for OneNote 2010 (with gedit) and added a line that kills any "ONENOTE.EXE" running.
7) Now I could open and close, and open OneNote again whitout any issues.
8) In Spanish the "ñ" letter appeared, but the áéíóú didn't.
9) I added (with gedit) a line in the PLayOnLinux shortcut to fix that.......
export LANG=es_CL. UTF-8

Summing it all up:.......
The PlayOnLinux OneNote 2010 shurtcut is located at:
~/.PlayOnLinux/shortcuts/Microsoft OneNote 2010

The content that worked for me is:
[ "$PLAYONLINUX" = "" ] && exit 0
source "$PLAYONLINUX/lib/sources"
export POL_IgnoreWineErrors=True
export env XMODIFIERS='' WINEPREFIX="/home/andres/.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/Office2010"
export WINEDEBUG="-all"
export LANG=es_CL. UTF-8
#POL_Log=Microsoft Office 2010
#ScriptID=Microsoft Office 2010
cd "/home/andres/.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/Office2010/drive_c/./Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office14"

From the linux terminal I executed the "locale" command in order to know what to put in the "export LANG=" line. Change the "/home/andres/" content with your user folder.

I hope this helps you all!!!
