I have had my Box working for quite a long time and its great, but…
I have always had trouble with the Desktop client not starting:
I have to start it, then open browser (I use Firefox) and open nextcloud via ubuntu-standard.local and mydomain.com, then close the browser pages, click on the Nextcloud client and it finally opens
I dont know if all the above is required but it more or less works like that
(Edit- I just had to try to open it many times after doing my Firefox thing, so it might just be a red herring)
After it opens all is absolutely fine,
Also, ticking ‘Launch on System startup’ does put an entry in my Xubuntu startup thingy but Nextcloud client doesnt start with the system
Now I am on 18.04 Xubuntu, but I had similar probs on 16.04
I installed the client via ppa:nextcloud-devs/client
Its version 2.3.3
I know this might be a Desktop client problem (so I moved this post) but I also think it could be something about the way my Box is set up
I am a ‘low tech level’ user by the way
I have the desktop client set up connected with ‘ubuntu-standard.local’ as I figured this would keep it ‘internal’ wrt my network and be quicker to sync than using ‘mydomain.com’ (I could well be wrong here )
When I open ubuntu-standard.local in my browser it tells me that connection not secure and I have to make a security exception
I have the following in my config.php:
'trusted_domains' => array ( 0 => 'ubuntu-standard.local', 2 => 'mydomain.com', ),
So, my questions are:
- Is this difficulty in starting up my Linux client likely to be because of this security certificate?
- If not, any ideas what is?
- If so, how could I fix this?
- Should I change the connection in the client to ‘mydomain.com’ ? will this reduce sync performance?
- Any other thoughts &/or advice?
Any help most gratefully received
