How to set up the client on Linux?

To install the client on your Linux PC, do the following, depending on your distribution:

Ubuntu

For our client there is an official PPA, which you can add to your system using the following commands in the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:seafile/seafile-client
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install seafile-gui

If you only want to install the terminal client (without GUI), run the following command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:seafile/seafile-client
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install seafile-cli

After installation, the client is immediately available. You can continue with step 2 (below).

Debian

For Debian there is our own repository, which you can add with the command:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 8756C4F765C9AC3CB6B85D62379CE192D401AB61

Add the appropriate repository to your apt sources by using the line that corresponds to your Debian version:

- Für Debian 7 
echo deb http://deb.seadrive.org wheezy main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yoursecurecloud.list
- Für Debian 8 
echo deb http://deb.seadrive.org jessie main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yoursecurecloud.list
- Für Debian 9 
echo deb http://deb.seadrive.org stretch main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yoursecurecloud.list

Finally, use this command to install the client:

sudo apt-get install seafile-gui

Alternatively, only the terminal client (without GUI) can be installed, this works with:

sudo apt-get install seafile-cli

After installation, the client is immediately available. You can continue with step 2 (below).
