    Hi antiXians

    I have just installed antiX a couple of days ago. It looks really awesome, and my old laptop, which have served me for more than 10 years now, have got its youth back 🙂

    So now I am moving into it so to speak, and part of my furnishing is to install Nextcloud to share my files between my laptop and my computer. Unfortunately Nextcloud does not work with antiX’s filemanager.

    I used to use Nextcloud with Caja, but if I try to install Caja I also get Mate desktop.
    Have any of you successfully been able to use Nextcloud with antiX?


    Why not try Thunar. It does not (to my knowledge) force a desktop install. You can also try nemo…

    Unfortunately Nextcloud does not work with antiX’s filemanager.

    Try SpaceFM (already installed in antix) first, as it is not clear that you have tested it out.

    Also, does NextCloud not have a client App that helps you set up a folder for sync? It should be independent from the File Manager (sorry if this sounds stupid; I have no experience with this cloudsharing software).


    Thanks for your ideas. I did try with SpaceFM, I just couldn’t remember it’s name at the moment. But thanks to your suggestions I discovered that Webdav should be helpful. I have no experience with that, but I will have a look at it one of the next days.


    nextcloud-desktop client is installable from official debian repos these days… no need for file-manager integration.

    $ apt policy nextcloud-desktop
    Installed: 2.6.1-2
    Candidate: 2.6.1-2
    Version table:
    *** 2.6.1-2 500
    500 testing/main amd64 Packages
    500 sid/main amd64 Packages


    I found screenshots for nextcloud-desktop here
    but none for the {caja,nemo,nautilus} filemanager integration packages.
