Summary0000676: Owncloud/Nextcloud desktop client
DescriptionOwncloud ver. 8.x works fine on my OS/2 server at home. What I really miss an updated Owncloud client. The one we have:

http://ecsoft2.org/owncloud-client

is out of date, difficult to install (doesn't play with the RPM QT environment) and, what is worst, I was never able to make it work.

If you should find some time to look at it, I think it would be a valuable addition for OS/2:

https://github.com/owncloud/client
https://doc.owncloud.org/desktop/latest/building.html#generic-build-instructions

Just for documentation, a fork of Owncloud exists, named Nextcloud. Currently, the two softwares did not really diverge, and the clients are interoperable:

Despite the build instructions for owncloud mentioning BUILD_WITH_QT4=ON - the latest source appears to need Qt5

Would it be possible to build an older version? Latest versions include just updates for sharing management via GUI, the core function - syncing files - did not change...

possibly - it would be a matter of finding out when they stopped supporting qt4 - for some reason, they don't seem to have archives of the older source releases, so it would be a matter of checking out different git versions...

in https://github.com/owncloud/client/blob/1.3/CMakeLists.txt there are the following lines:

find_package(Qt4 4.6.0 COMPONENTS QtCore QtGui QtXml QtNetwork QtTest REQUIRED )
...

that in https://github.com/owncloud/client/blob/1.4/CMakeLists.txt become:
find_package(Qt4 4.7.0 COMPONENTS QtCore QtGui QtXml QtNetwork QtTest QtWebkit REQUIRED )
...

The above lines are commented in versions from 1.5 up to 2.1 and removed starting from version 2.2.

Link to 2.1 client sources: https://github.com/owncloud/client/archive/v2.1.1.zip
