Installing SpiderOak on Debian 7


Hi from Amsterdam

I'm trying to install SpiderOak onto a Debian 7 VM to test its functions. As a newbie to Linux the practice is good too; that's why I've got a VM. Installing it to Debian is not as straightforward as SpiderOak would like you to believe. I've made the appropriate directory and extracted the downloaded files into it using the Terminal. Now I need to edit the startup script. The problem is, I can't find the startup script it is not where they say it is. Sorry for sounding vague, as I've said, I'm still very new to Linux Has anyone else experienced difficulties like this while installing SpiderOak to Debian? Any help is much appreciated.

Hi,

to help you you need to tell us exactly what you did to install spideroak. A link to the instructions you are following would probably be most useful.

Solved . It was a corrupt download. Downloaded the installer again and the startup script was there. SpiderOak is installed on Debian 7.
