Pair Firefox29 with Owncloud mozilla_sync

  • Go to your Owncloud installation https://myowncloud/remote.php/mozilla_sync and accept the SSL Certificate
  • Open about:config
  • Create: services.sync.username <string> The value should be a hash not the username itself. (You only need the hash if the sync was setup with a pre FF29, if you start from scratch the string doesn't matter)
  • Restart Firefox
  • Go to: Preferences → Sync → Setup Firefox sync (you should see the old UI now)
    • 'I Have an Account'
    • 'I don't have the device with me'
    • 'Account' - again use the hash NOT the actual username!
    • 'Password' - …
    • 'Recovery Key' - Get the right key from an older browser, you can find it in the sync settings

To generate the hash:

import hashlib,import base64 print base64.b32encode(hashlib.sha1("user@server.tld").digest()).lower()


Add AwesomeWM to LightDM session list

Looks like it's a bug, but can easily be fixed. Edit /usr/share/xsessions/awesome.desktop and change NoDisplay= from true to false.
