[SOLVED] Cloud Solution for Mint KDE

Postby bfds89 » Tue Feb 19, 2013 5:21 pm

Hi.
Im using Mint KDE 14, after giving up on Ubuntu's Unity interface.
Altought I really needed a cloud client to access my files everywhere.
Ubuntu had Ubuntu One. And in windows I used Sky Drive. Is there any cloud service for KDE?

Thanks for your help. Hope Im not asking something already answered, but I did a search on KDE forum and found nothing that could help me.

Regards ;)

Seems like Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/) is an option, but with some work to get it to integrate with KDE: http://www.nixternal.com/kde-and-dropbox/. Alternatively, and more secure, is SpiderOak (https://spideroak.com/) which has a Qt client application. So that should integrate very well with KDE I think.

There are probably more options, but depends on what you need also. If you are using Chrome, Chromium or Firefox (but better Chrome/Chromium) as a browser, you can also try Mega (https://mega.co.nz/), which at 50 GB free storage is hard to beat. But currently it only works through your web browser,

Dropbox works fine for me although I did not try tweaking it to use Dolphin. It opens in Nautilus by default when invoked from system tray but the files,per se, can be managed in Dolphin by navigating to Dropbox folder.
Cheers,
If there is a drive, there will be a path

Thanks for the replies. I managed to install Insync which can be used as a Google Drive, since there is currently no linux support natively.
This works very well. :D

There's also no reason at all that you can't instill Ubuntu One. It works fine in KDE - You just have to deal with the Gnome-wallet authorization once (normally leaving the password blank). Works great. There is also an U1 service menu for Dolphin for right-clicking a file and uploading to u1, or to share the file, etc.
