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:

is out of date, difficult to install (doesn't play with the RPM QT environment) and, what is worst, I was never able to make it work.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

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

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 there are the following lines:

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

that in 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:
