I would like to be able to setup Desktop Sync on my Linux workstation.
Thank you for writing to us. Is there anything specific that you are looking for supporting on Linux. Even though there might be quite a few users on Linux, a majority of the Egnyte users work via Windows & MAC. This significantly reduces the demand of end users on Linux.
But if you can let me know your usecase, I can certainly check with my Product team to see if there are any other options available.
I have to agree. I use a debian based system and have no support to use egnyte. My windows users which I control have the ability to view the online egnyte and directly edit microsoft word documents for example with their local programs, and save. For a linux user I only could see the contents and download the contents. It's quite the headache. Desktop Sync would go a long way to make this easy for me. I'm starting to think now that I should move over our company to Box.com where I can mount a Web folder to my system with, or dropbox which has full linux support.
@JS C GROUP - have you tried out WebDAV with Egnyte? I know that some of our customers use WebDAV to provide desktop access to their files on Linux.
Is this still in the works? Have there been talks? or just meh.... maybe someday?
There has not been any movement on this. But I have written to our Product Team to get a word from them. I will update this thread once I hear from them.
I had a discussion with our Product Team about the Desktop Sync on Linux. This feature request was brought up some time back for discussion, but there were no short term plans then.
Sadly this time around too there are no immediate/future plans to introduce the Desktop Sync to the Linux OS. Rather, the focus is more on improving the Desktop Sync on the existing platforms i.e Windows & MAC.
We thank you for your feedbacks and your interest in Egnyte.
I totally understand where you are coming from. Let me see if there is/can be a workaround for this functional requirement.
I will write back once I get some update.
I had a word with the product team about this request. Although there is no movement on this on our end, we want to look into a possibility of efforts to build a Linux sync client using our public APIs. A couple of questions:
We are still looking into how much of our sync client can we abstract to suport this.
