Nextcloud Desktop keeps being started by Dolphin

For a few days now, Nextcloud Desktop will randomly start at some point when I open Dolphin. I’m wondering what the proper way to stop this is without resorting to removing Nextcloud. I’m not using it now, but maybe I will later.

There is a setting to launch it at startup, but that is unchecked, and I haven’t noticed it start at login, just at some random point during a session.

Edit: I’m not sure it’s even Dolphin after all… it seems to keep happening randomly and when I close something there’s the stupid Nextcloud window under what I was working on. This is too annoying, I’m going to have to uninstall it.

This is old but rings a bell: The Nextcloud desktop client keeps restarting / Newbie Corner / Arch Linux Forums and perhaps this also explains the behavior Add option to disable file explorer integration · Issue #1982 · nextcloud/desktop · GitHub which also mentions libcloudproviders.
I have no idea though. And you did not post the inxi.

  • Show us the results of your searches, and what you’ve tried
  • After rebooting, post the FULL output of garuda-inxi in the body of the post (not linked externally, or collapsed with the “hide details” feature)
  • Format terminal output (including your garuda-inxi) as a code block by clicking the preformatted text button (</>) , or put three tildes (~) above and below the text



Yes this popped up out of nowhere after the last updates. Was not overly amused to do a restart and have the login box pop up out of nowhere and have to navigate a few windows to figure out what it was. I don’t know if this was installed by the Garuda installer out of the box and is just now misbehaving, or if an update dragged it in. I had it happen on both machines here and once I figured out what it was uninstalled it on both machines.

meanuse, SGS is right we shouldn’t provide help til OP fixes their post.

Nope, IRRC, nextcloud is not installed by default.

We also have no influence on Dolphin or Nextcloud :slight_smile:
I think a workaround is included in @ meanruse’s post and I’ll mark it as such.

Thanks, I thought as much. I wonder what took to liberty of installing it without the end user’s express permission, cause I know I read EVERYTHING. If I figure it out I’ll post who is responsible here and then go to where their software is hosted and BLAST them.
