Hello friends. We already know how to install a Nextcloud server but now the client is missing. So in this post, you will learn how to get the Nextcloud desktop client on Linux. The process is quite simple.

Nextcloud: a great solution for privates clouds

There are many data storage services in clouds. Technological giants like Apple, Google and Microsoft have them. However, there are people or companies that want to have absolute control of their own data. Nextcloud is there for that.

Nextcloud is an open-source web application that allows us to create our own private cloud. It was created with the primary objective that it is the user who has absolute control of the files.

Many companies install Nextcloud on their servers to create their private clouds. This way they can rely on their own data management. It is even of great help in educational or personal projects.

Getting the Nextcloud desktop client on Linux

The first thing we need to do is to have a Nextcloud server running. About that, we have some posts that can help you.

Install Nextcloud on Debian 10

This server has to be ready for battle. Whether on the internet or on an internal network.

After you already have it or if it already exists, you have to go to the Nextcloud website.

And look in the download section, the desktop client, and choose the version for Linux in AppImage format.

Once you download it, assign execution permissions from the file browser of your distribution.

In case you want to do it from the terminal, you just have to navigate to the folder where it is and assign it the permission.

cd Downloads/
chmod +x Nextcloud-3.0.2-x86_64.AppImage

And then, run it by double-clicking on it.

You will see the following screen

Choose the Login option to start the configuration process. The first thing is to define the server and then click on next.
