Using OwnCloud sync client on Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela

Update, 2016-03-19

Sus!!e has changed repos and the Client isn’t available on the posted address anymore.
As I don’t use it anymore (switched to a private, nas-based, cloud) I didn’t check if there is a new one available and removed the link here.

The owncloud sync client supplied in the standard repos of Linux Mint is quite old (1.5.0 at time of writing this). The current one is 2.0.1.

The old client cannot connect to an owncloud instance running 8.1 or higher. it keeps on telling that one uses the wrong login-credentials.

After some hint on the owncloud chat-rooms I deinstalled the client from the official ubuntu / mint repos and installed the one supplied at the opensuse pages.


I’m using this repo:

deb /

This one works like a charm. I can connect and sync.

  1. Yeah, well, would be nice if you had mentioned which of the clients you installed. Did you add an Ubuntu repository or did you grab the binary directly, and which Ubuntu distro did you use for which Mint distro?

    First day on Mint, and if I don’t get the owncloud client working, it will be my last.
