You must install FileCloud Sync before you can begin synchronizing documents on your local computer to the FileCloud Server site.

 What if I'm using Ubuntu 17.10?

For Ubuntu 17.10, please follow the steps below:

  • Download the libpng12 package from this site https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/amd64/libpng12-0/download

    Click on any of the mirror sites and double-click to install.  

    After step 1 above, when "./filecloudsyncstart.sh" script is run, if it shows a message "There appears to be no system tray support in your current environment", then your version of Ubuntu does not support system tray icons, and hence needs to be enabled by downloading the extensions.

  • Please go to the site "https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1031/topicons/"

    Click on "Click here to install browser extension.", Click "Allow" and then "Add".

  • When you go back to the site, "https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1031/topicons/", you might see this message : "Although GNOME Shell integration extension is running, native host connector is not detected. Refer documentation for instructions about installing connector."

    Click on the "documentation" link in the message above.

    In this site, choose your Linux version, and execute the corresponding command in the terminal.

  • Go back to https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1031/topicons/ & refresh.
    Click on the "Off/On" button to set it to On state. 
    Click download and install option.

  •  After all the steps above have completed successfully, running the "./filecloudsyncstart.sh" script should start up Sync app.

  1. Download FileCloud Sync App from https://www.getfilecloud.com/additional-downloads/#sync
  2. After successfully downloading the App, extract the zip file filecloudsync_linux_amd64.zip.

    chmod +x filecloudsync
  5. Open terminal, go to the location where the FileCloud Sync files were extracted and then run filecloudsyncstart.sh
