How To Install OwnCloud 1.8 On Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, OpenSUSE And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, OwnCloud is a web service that allows you to upload data via browser or by using a software client (similar to Dropbox, let’s say). ownCloud uses PHP and one of the following databases SQLite, MySQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL (you decide which db you install) and runs on all the operating systems that have support for at least one of this databases.

The latest version available is OwnCloud Client 1.8, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Support Sharing from desktop: Added a share dialog that can be opened by context menu in the file managers (Win, Mac, Nautilus). It supports public links with password enforcement
  • Enhanced usage of parallel HTTP requests for ownCloud 8 servers
  • Renamed github repository from mirall to client.
  • Mac OS: Use native notification support
  • Selective Sync: allow to enforce selective sync in brandings.
  • Added ability to build on Windows utilizing MingGW
  • SQLite database fixes if running on FAT filesystems
  • Improved detection of changing files to upload from local
  • Preparations for the multi-account feature
  • Fixed experience for Window manager without system tray
  • Build with Qt 5.4
  • Dropped libneon dependency if Qt 5.4 is available
  • Keep files open very short, that avoid lock problems on Windows especially with office software but also others.
  • Merged some NetBSD patches
  • Selective sync support for owncloudcmd
  • Reorganize the source repository
  • Prepared direct download
  • Added Crashreporter feature to be switched on on demand
  • A huge amount of bug fixes in all areas of the client.
