Linux distribution packages for the desktop clients - help out!


#73

the distribution does - and yeah, that’s what we would like to see :wink:

The PPA is a great step forward for this, I now link to it from our install page.


#74

Can i use this ppa for debian jessie?
If yes, which ubuntu-version should i choose?


#75

The new location of the Nextcloud client PPA is ppa:nextcloud-devs/client. To start using it, issue the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nextcloud-devs/client
sudo apt-get update

You can remove the old one by:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:ivaradi/nextcloud-client-ppa

I am going to update only the new PPA and will delete the old one in some time.


No Nextcloud icon in panel on Mint
#76

AFAIK the PPA is not usable for Debian Jessie. However, you can try the following repository:

deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ivaradi//Debian_8.0/ /


Nextcloud-client on Debian 8
#77

This deb did it, thank you.


#78

Nice, how would I get this? As in: download the code, build it, start application… or can I download the AppImage itself somewhere?


#79

Thanks.
Having a PPA regularly updated is great :gift:.

The desktop sync client did not really work for me @ivaradi . I use Linux Mint 18 x64 and Nextcloud 11.0.1

It worked about for half a day. I just uploaded a lot of files with the client and after a while it quit working, while uploading (!). I always had an “can not connect” error although i can connect by ssh and browser from the same machine.

Then i uninstalled and reinstalled it, it worked again for a (short) while and then again: “can not connect”.

That was too much for my nerves then and therefore i switched back to the Owncloud client of SuSE repo. That worked for me, since months.

PS: I don’t understand why Nextcloud is not offering an official repo for the Linux client. For example, Webmin is also open source and they provide an official repo.


#81

Sure, you can download the AppImage once https://github.com/nextcloud/client_theming/issues/61 has happened.


#82

It is strange, since, AFAIK, the actual code should be the same for both versions, only the icons and some names have changed. Maybe the developers working on the code can look into it.


#83

Are there any plans to do a rebuild for zesty? It just hit Beta 1. Likely it would just be a rebuild. I could potentially help with packaging.


#84

I have uploaded the Zesty packages into the PPA and had them built. The building was OK, so it probably even works. Please, give them a try and let me know the results.


#86

Is it still this?

sudo apt-get install nextcloud-client


Help us test upcoming client releases!
#87

yes, more infos here :slight_smile:

For some distributions, there are already sources to install the Nextcloud sync client via packet manager. @jospoortvliet posted a summary of all available distros:

People start to post their individual problems on this topic. If you need help building packages for your distribution or already existing packages have bugs, please open a new thread.
