"E: Unable to locate package owncloud-client" Ubuntu

Postby rdpbinns » Sun Sep 08, 2013 11:18 am

Hi, I'm having trouble installing the owncloud-client for ubuntu 12.04.

I follow the instructions here http://software.opensuse.org/download/p ... oud-client

The relevant package is mentioned in the file owncloud-client.list my sources.list.d directory;



I've also tried installing the package with Synaptic. Any help greatly appreciated.

What happen if you use the command:
apt-get install owncloud-client

That's what I tried. This is the precise wording;

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package owncloud-client

Thanks

I had trouble with the new owncloud client (1.4.0) too.

You can try once agein to use the command apt-get update and then apt-get install owncloud-client

I am afraid, that this doesn't work.

Then you can try to download all *.deb files from the repository (if you use 32-bit Ubuntu):
http://download.opensuse.org/repositori ... 2.04/i386/

After that you use the Ubuntu software manager to install the *.deb (right mouse click on the file).
You should start with the lib*.deb
the second to last should be the ocsync_0.90.0-1_i386.deb and the last one the owncloud-client_1.4.0-1_i386.deb
After that you should start the owncloud client in the GUI.

Could you report this on the mailing list?

Initially, I had some small problems installing the 1.4 version too (see here: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=15503), but it was promised that something would change to resolve that (see here: http://mail.kde.org/pipermail/owncloud/ ... 10481.html). Maybe during trying to fix that issue, something else was broken which is causing the problems you see?
