<SOLVED> Installing Owncloud client
« on: October 20, 2019, 03:31:19 pm »
Hello there,

I'm trying to install the Owncloud client, but so far without luck. I have some experience with Ubuntu, but I'm new to the challenges of Sparky / Debian.

I have found several deb packages and installation guides, but all for debian 8 or 9, not for debian 10. I have found this page: https://packages.debian.org/buster/owncloud-client  but I don't know what to do with it. I have downloaded the .deb package but I can't install it. Is it a page to manually add a repository? How do I do that?

Im running the latest Sparky (rolling release).

Thanks in advance for your help!

On 2019-08-28 Owncloud-client has been removed from Debian testing repo , which sparky rolling is based on.
When I'll find some time I will check what was the reason for the removal.

Edit.
Just checked Owncloud-client from Debian unstable repo on my sparky rolling VM. Installation went fine and it seems to be working ok. Owncloud-client package from Debian Sid will be added to sparky testing repo so you , and perhaps others , will be able to install it with apt.
If you can't wait just add Debian unstable repo to your sources.list , and then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt install owncloud-client

Start here

https://packages.debian.org/sid/owncloud-client

Go here
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?pkg=owncloud-client;dist=unstable

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=933290

appears that the tex-live ... is also missing from testing

https://packages.debian.org/sid/texlive-generic-extra

###
edit added   looking at
https://download.owncloud.org/download/repositories/production/owncloud/

They talk about Debian 9.  The Redhat instuctions appear a bit dated also.

However their git page indicates a very active community.

Thanks for the help. Owncloud is up and running now, but a new problem arises. The application asks for the password everytime I log in. It's the same problem as described here: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1037978/owncloud-client-no-service-keychain-available-ubuntu-18-04

The solution is to install libgnome-keyring0, however, the package is no longer available in Debian 10, as described here: https://github.com/notable/notable/issues/725

How to deal with that?

Thanks in advance..

My guess its to go with Sid-Unstable.  Another guess is that all of the items missing in Rolling-Testing were coupled with the same transition.    Or maybe not
https://packages.debian.org/sid/libgnome-keyring0

No change log for the libgnome... but changelog for gnome-keyring

Looking at the Debian package web page for owncloud...   it looks like it migrated as planned to Buster.  - Sparky6.

Sparky 6 is based on Debian bullseye.

Pavroo added newest Owncloud-client Debian has to offer to Sparky repo. My best guess is that while performing system upgrade you updated your old , manually installed package. That probably fixed your issue
