Owncloud 2.4.3 Debian 9 client on Devuan Ascii


#1

Expected behaviour

Since Devuan-Ascii is a fork of Debian 9, it is assumed that the owncloud-client_2.4.3 client amd64 downloaded from the Owncloud clients webpage for DEBIAN 9 would properly install on a Devuan-Ascii amd64 install.

Actual behaviour

Client does NOT install on Devuan-Ascii and emits the following errors:

Please advise


#2

Install the required qt5 packages first.


#3

This install of Devuan has KDE5/Plasma and thus should have all qt5 libraries installed. If Devuan/Ascii is a true fork of Debian 9, any needed libraries should already be installed and I’m wondering WHY the owncloud debian9 client has these errors…


#4

I don’t know about the Devuan/Ascii fork. But maybe, the maintainer removed besides systemd also some other packages. :wink:


#6

Hey,

could it be possible that you just have downloaded the owncloud-client .deb file directly and that you’re trying to install this directly? I don’t think that this will work, from my experience with Debian such an installation way won’t pull/install the additional required dependencies.


#7

For a linux user that doesn’t fear to install a somewhat exotic (sorry) fork, it should be no real problem finding and covering the requirements.
Just my 2 cents. :wink:


#8

That would be BAD…Devuan is advertised as being a true fork of Debian, and the Ascii release is supposedly a true fork of Debian 9/Stretch… Guess I’ll hit the Devuan forums and see if that is the
case…


#9

I have a couple of machines that I inherited that have Debian 9 and the Owncloud client installs just fine on those machines, with a simple “dpkg -i Owncloud-Client.deb”…


#10

Hey,

i think it won’t help you if dpkg is doing something different that you’re expecting it to do. :slightly_smiling_face:

If i understand the output you had posted initially your system is currently not providing the packages dpkg is expecting to be there and thus the installation aborts.

I think if you just add the repositories from the link down below (linked on owncloud.org) and use an apt-get install owncloud-client your problem is solved instantly.

#11

Problem is fixed… Apparently, unknown to me, the Devuan repos have the current version of the
Owncloud client. Installed via apt-get and alls good now…
