OK, it’s time to start cleaning the mess around the desktop client in AUR.

This package should be a merging of itself and The theming repo is deprecated, this git package should build from the actual git tree for the NextCloud client.

@friendofarch sorry nextcloud client has not reached version 2.5, the owncloud client has a tech preview to that version.

friendofarch commented on 2018-07-22 20:46

Nextcloud-Client 2.5 is out on Github which solves a couple of issues.

@ArchangeGabriel you are right I will change it

ArchangeGabriel commented on 2018-04-08 20:25

You should remove that v at the start of the pkgver (I did not look at the code you used in pkgver() yet, but I guess the issue is there).

Additional steps to get this going on Nemo:

The following works with PKGBUILD 520a0da and /client_theming.git a358076 (the last push before the /client.git consolidation). You'll have to comment out the _version= line in the PKGBUILD to fetch this automatically.

  • Ensure indicator support is off: gsettings set org.cinnamon enable-indicators false. To verify, check the melange log after completing the remaining steps. Among the last few entries should be one saying something like systray: nextcloud.
  • Instead of enabling the included service unit, as mentioned in the makepkg install step, symlink the system's Nextcloud.desktop file to your XDG_CONFIG_HOME/autostart. On first launch, General > General Settings > Launch on System Startup should already be ticked.
  • In /usr/share/nemo-python/extensions/, change the only occurrence of appname = ownCloud to appname = Nextcloud. The 2.4 client (/client.git) already does this.
  • Log out and back in, check icon overlay, system tray.

A quick note in the pkgbuild would do wonders for users just trying to install the Nextcloud client but unsure of this PKGBUILD.

This AUR package installs the Nextcloud desktop client using the instructions from Nextcloud's client.theming repository on Github, which pulls source from the Owncloud client (please correct me if I'm wrong)

There is another repository named "client" in Nextcloud's github page which is the "authoritative repository maintained by the developers". I am unsure of the difference between the two repositories "client" and "client.theming".

I believe some explanation is due from the package maintainer cgenogo, or someone else who understands what's going on?

One more question: Why is the installed falling into the GIT 'detached HEAD' state within which it starts to download:

Submodule 'client' ( registered for path 'client'

We really do not want to install OwnCloud's client and we want to go with NextCloud's sources, or don't we?

Hi, I wonder, why does the "post_remove()" function call the "post_install" instead of:
post_remove() {
echo ================================== Important =================================
echo Stop the nextcloud client daemon with:
echo systemctl stop --user nextcloud-client.service
echo ==============================================================================
echo Disable the nextcloud client daemon with:
echo systemctl disable --user nextcloud-client.service
echo ==============================================================================
xdg-icon-resource forceupdate --theme hicolor
systemctl daemon-reload

It does not make sense, does it?
