Fresh install of Kubuntu 22.04. I tried the owncloud-client in the Ubuntu repo but it wouldn’t start so I downloaded the client ver. 2.10.1+oc-7389 from your website using the instructions at https://download.owncloud.com/desktop/ownCloud/stable/latest/linux/download/. I already have an owncloud folder on this computer that I’d like to keep. When going through the software setup, it detected the fact that the folder I wanted was named “owncloud” and it refused to use it, insisting I choose a different folder. I could always delete it and download everything from the server again (or just rename it and rename it again later) but that is not the preferred route. The version of owncloud that comes from the Ubuntu repo for ver. 22.04 does not have this restriction. Please remove it so that we can use our existing data folder.
Tell us what should happen
Owncloud should sync whatever folder I specify, even if it’s an existing owncloud folder. This is going to be the case for OS reinstalls.
Tell us what happens instead
Owncloud refuses to use the existing folder when choosing it in the client setup.
- Install Ubuntu 22.04 in a new partition.
- Install owncloud-client from owncloud’s repo since the one in the Ubuntu repo is broken.
- While going through the setup process, choose the existing owncloud data folder that I already have in a different partition. The client refuses, saying the folder already exists. Yes, I know, and that’s the folder I want to use.
