JustCloud on Linux / Ubuntu

JustCloud offers a new Linux client for Debian-based systems, e.g. Ubuntu and others.

You can choose to download 32 bit or 64 bit versions. However, what the website doesn’t tell you is that JustCloud client for Linux has some dependencies and you need to install them manually before installing JustCloud. Those dependencies / packages are:

  • rdiff
  • librsync1

So, download JustCloud and do this:

sudo apt-get install rdiff librsync1
sudo dpkg -i ./JustCloud_64.deb

Change the second line to match the path to JustCloud package.

If you don’t install these dependencies on Linux before, you can encounter this error:
