OwnCloud Setup

For background information on OwnCloud <- click here

The latest sync clients can always be found at: http://owncloud.org/sync-clients/
You will need to install a sync client in order to sync data over multiple machines.

Windows client

Download and run the ownCloud YYYY.M.D Windows Client (.exe) (under "ownCloud Desktop Clients", click on "Windows", click on "Download")
You will need administrator privileges to install the Windows client.

Then follow the notes at OwnCloudUsage

Macintosh client

Instructions here are taken from the ownCloud website.
To install ownCloud, you will need a 64-bit Intel Mac, with OS X 10.5 or higher.
How can I tell if my Intel Mac is 64-bit?

Installing the ownCloud client on your Mac is as easy as ABC:

  • Download the latest installation file, Download and run the *ownCloud YYYY.M.D Mac OS X Client (under "ownCloud Desktop Clients", click on "Mac OS X", click on "Download")
  • Click ownCloud-X.Y.Z.dmg, a window with the ownCloud icon opens
  • In that window, drag the ownCloud application into the "Applications" folder on the right hand side
  • From "Applications", choose ownCloud

Then follow the notes at OwnCloudUsage

Ubuntu client

For Ubuntu, we have provided a setup script to install the ownCloud client.
This script should work on recent Ubuntu versions(up to 12.10), but will not work on nettops.

Setup instructions

Start by downloading the setup onto your computer.
By default, Ubuntu will not run newly downloaded programs or scripts.
We will tell Ubuntu to let us run the setup, by using chmod +x in a terminal:
chmod +x owncloud-1.1.1-setup.sh
You need to use the terminal in the same folder you downloaded the setup, in my case it's in ~/Downloads.
You can open the terminal by going to the dash and searching for "Terminal" or using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Alt + T.
By default, when you open terminal you will be in your home directory ('~'). You can move to the Downloads directory by using the command cd Downloads.

You may also try running the setup by double-clicking on it and selecting "Run in Terminal".

Next, when you run setup, it will ask you for your password.
When you complete this step, setup should finish the rest on its own and close the terminal:
password prompt

Then follow the notes at OwnCloudUsage
