    Hi! I love your tips for installing ownCloud on Linux Mint. This works and is very easy but it seems to install a rather old version of ownCloud 3.0.0.
    Do you have instructions to either install the the newest version or an easy way to upgrade to it? I really like Mint and I am a Linux newbie but I enjoy learning and I am excited about the possibilities of ownCloud. Thanks!

      Doug add the owncloud ppa and you can update owncloud to latest version easily. Enter the below commands in terminal.
      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jr/ppa
      sudo apt-get update owncloud

      Hope it helps you. Good day.

    Hello again. Thanks for the tips. The repository updated just fine. When I run the last part: sudo apt-get update owncloud I get this message: E: The update command tales no arguments. Thanks!

      Doug try the following command instead. If the repository has new version of owncloud, it will be automatically updated.
      sudo apt-get update

      Hope it helps.

        Thanks. I did some reading on the apt-get command and figured that out 🙂
        I see that I have a newer version 4.0.5 instead of 3.0.0 from earlier. How often do the repositories get updated? It seems a bit behind the current releases. Is that typical for Linux repositories? Thank again for your help!

    Doug glad its work for you. I don’t know how often repositories got updated. Whenever a new version is released you will get notification. Good day.
