(Solved) Desktopp App in Kubuntu Linux; how to install it?

Hello,
I downloaded the desktop app for NextCloud. The downloaded file is “Nextcloud-2.5.1-x86_64.AppImage” yet I cannot find instructions on how to install and have it working.

I have Kubuntu 18.04.2 LTS

Regards !

Personally, I hate using the AppImage. Integration sucks hardcore with it (as with all AppImages). I recommend going here to launchpad and installing. So basically, all these commands here if you don’t want to follow the link:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nextcloud-devs/client
$ sudo update
$ sudo apt install nextcloud-client nextcloud-client-dolphin

Enjoy!

If you go to appimage.org, under the heading ‘How to run an AppImage?’, it says:

  1. Make it executable

  2. Run it.

Change the filename they have in the examples to the filename of the file that you downloaded, and you’re done!

Now it works. Thank you !
