Just to make sure, did you try the native gnome options orjust some third party apps from the repo? The way gnome works for me is this:
Log into your google drive or nextcloud account in gnome online accounts
Profit. Your Google drive/next cloud now appears as in the left panel of file manager, Nautilus. No need to sync anything, it just mounts the drive over the network so you can treat everything like a normal external drive.
Is this undesirable behavior, or did you just not try this yet?
I’ve been using tresorit for several months and quite like it, in the terminal or via the GUI. I originally installed it via AUR, and now see what you’re saying about it no longer being supported–I’ll have to come up with a script to download the tresorit script and run it periodically.
Tresorit is no longer being actively maintained–supported–in AUR. Tresorit the company is actively supporting and developing the application binaries. I believe this is what you were saying–at least it’s what I said you were saying–but I hadn’t realized that the AUR maintainer had given up. Despite that, I like the service well enough that it’s worth putting up with the administrative hassle of updating the binaries myself.
Yes, it’s package is orphan. That’s because it’s difficult to install from a package manager. The executable is intended to be installed in the home directory with no root privileges (default to ~/.local/share/tresorit) while most packages are installed in /usr/lib/
The installer says that the app needs a location where it has write access, maybe to save some local config even if a config directory is also installed in ~/.conf/tresorit. That way, if you want to install from a package manager in /usr/lib, you would start it anytime with su, which is not a good idea for a closed source app that is managing your files.
So installing from their binary in the local home folder starting it with no root privileges seems the best decision.
