btw, 0x47: this package is not binary, it's versioned source-based package. A binary package (one based on, for instance, other distro's package) should in fact be a separate -bin package which you can commit alongside this one.

(to clarify, by "this package" I mean k0ste's AUR package, not my previously mentioned one)

Package not building:

CMake Error: The source directory "/home/share/arch/build/makepkg/nextcloud-client/src/client_theming-2.3.3/client" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt. Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

I've put together yet another PKGBUILD, this time a one heavily inspired by Alpine's APKBUILD. Works for me but ymmv:

Please note that my PKGBUILD is source-based, not binary-based.

@spsf64 no, there are no -bin packages. there are normal ones (no suffix), created from binaries and there are {-git,-svn,...} created from VCS sources. this is the package supposed to use binaries if possible.

@0x47 maybe you create a new bin package? Like: nextcloud-client-bin I tried your pkgbuild and works fine, thanks!

I created a PKGBUILD (based on this one) using the official .deb binaries:

Hope someone finds it useful. You can also use and alter it to your liking for this package.

@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
