@k0ste: The caja- and nemo-extension doesn't seem to work. The source includes a patch file that address the problem (see ../linux/debian/nextcloud-client/debian/patches/fix-syncstate-appname.patch). But it does not apply. Is there something missing in the PKGBUILD?

Hello, I cannot build the package

CMake Error: The source directory "/tmp/makepkg/nextcloud-client/src/client_theming-2.3.3/client" does not exist. Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

@sleeping: Thanks for your feedback. Nextcloud's Github comes with two repositories: one with this re-branded Owncloud client and one named "client" which is the "authoritative repository maintained by the developers".

Anyway, this package does pretty much the same thing as the "nextcloud-client-git", hence its existence is doubtful. I would expect it to be a pre-built binary without the need for AUR users to go through the GIT process each and every update again. We really need some feedback at least from the package maintainers.

zeroflag's comment is misguided.

  1. nextcloud-client-git uses exactly the same 're-branding' of owncloud's client (client folder links to owncloud's client)
  2. It should, because that is what Nextcloud recommends on their page

WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL THIS PACKAGE! This is a re-branded OwnCloud's client. The only currently available NextCloud's client is the GIT version (nextcloud-client-git).

REASON: This package does not install a binary version of the NextCloud client software tested and distributed by the community. In fact, it downloads one of its parts from Owncloud's and the other from NextCloud's GIT repositories trying to mix them both somehow together. That's THE WRONG example of a PKGBUILD and AGAINST the KISS principles of Arch Linux.

arch=('x86_64') # there is not an official i686 version, but this one may work
#... and so on, and so forth

@k0ste, thanks, that did the trick.

@DonHugo, something with your system. extra-cmake-modules depends on cmake. cmake depends on jsoncpp.

Anybody else encountering the same error?

==> Beginne build()...
cmake: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
==> FEHLER: Ein Fehler geschah in build().

Seems like jsoncpp is missing, should this be added as a dependency or is it just something on my system?
