Details

Description: Cloud providers (currently only Nextcloud) can support the libcloudproviders DBUS API. This allows them to be displayed in file managers (currently only Nautilus). To use the API libcloudproviders needs to be included as a dependency to gtk3 and it needs to be compiled with the --enable-cloudproviders flag. See screenshots in this blog post: https://csorianognome.wordpress.com/2015/07/07/cloud-providers/

I have provided an updated AUR package for libcloudproviders which would need to be included in the repository (and would need a maintainer): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libcloudproviders/

I have also recompiled gtk3 and Nextcloud with the appropriate flags myself to find out if this actually works and it does! Probably nobody would actually go through the hassle to recompile all these packages themselves for such a small feature but it could be a nice addition if it was included out of the box. It also has the potential to include some more features in the future.

Additional info:
* gtk3 1:3.24.8-1
This task depends upon

Sounds a nice feature! However, there was an attempt to enable libcloudproviders in gtk3 [1], but it's soon reverted due to crashes in multiple GTK+ or Qt applications like musescore [2], libreoffice, chromium, transmission-qt [3], and so on [4]. Not sure if it's still an issue with the latest libcloudproviders.

After a quick test this unfortunately still seems to be the case. At first glance this could likely be related to upstream bug https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/issues/33. We'll see what upstream has to say about it.

It looks like the upstream bug has been fixed. The crash no longer happens is Musescore, Libreoffice, Chromium, Qtransmission with a fresh build with libcloudproviders enabled. It would be great to have this enabled by default.

This works for me too without any problem so far. I've also tried the given apps + telegram, firefox, glimpse, of course nautilus for a week now.

I've added a AUR pkgbuild to test: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gtk3-cloudproviders/
