Nextcloud Desktop Client AppImage


#1

Today we released the first AppImage of the Nextcloud Desktop Client (2.3.2-beta). For more info see: https://rullzer.com/nextcloud-desktop-client-appimage.html#nextcloud-desktop-client-appimage

Feedback is appreciated!


Nextcloud client AppImage for most Linux distributions
#2

Launches for me, but due to the lack of a Nextcloud server I could not test whether it syncs properly.


#3

It works fine for me. Fedora 25, nextcloud 12.


#4

I wonder what an AppImage is. I’m used to .deb and .rpm packages. A FlatPak would be sexy these days, but I’ve never heard of AppImages.

AppImage has, among others, these advantages:

  • Applications packaged as an AppImage can run on many distributions (including Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, CentOS, elementaryOS, Linux Mint, and others)
  • One app = one file = super simple for users: just download one AppImage file, make it executable, and run
  • No unpacking or installation necessary
  • No root needed
  • No system libraries changed
  • Works out of the box, no installation of runtimes needed
  • Optional desktop integration with appimaged
  • Optional binary delta updates, e.g., for continuous builds (only download the binary diff) using AppImageUpdate
  • Can optionally GPG2-sign your AppImages (inside the file)
  • Works on Live ISOs
  • Can use the same AppImages when dual-booting multiple distributions

How can I solve this issue?
Thanks.

As you left the URL, I went on it and you appear to have a self-signed certificate that could be a reason why it wasn’t accepted, and you might want to add your certificate using the third option.


#11

In my case, I have the same issue than above:

but with a Let’s Encrypt certificate. Any ideas to solve this?
