Same problem here. Tried some rewiring via LD_LIBRARY_PATH but could not really get it to work.

This is a bummer cause insync 3 supports both GDrive and OneDrive and I would need both.

Thanks anyway for maintaining!

I'm getting this error message. Setting QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland yields pretty much the same message. Any suggestions?

I run Insync headless on a home server and CLI and headless support were dropped in v3. I've created a separate aur package called insync1 from the last commit of this package pre-v3. The official word on this package is that it's community supported and it wont receive any updates.

Insync say they might add CLI/headless support in the future. Until then, we can use 1.5.7 until it stops working. I've added a pinned comment on the package to explain its purpose.

Seems to work fine on my fresh Manjaro KDE. However, it turned out that the tray icon wasn't shown, though it was responding to mouse clicks. The tray icon appeared only after the installation of lib32-libappindicator-gtk2. Maybe this package should be included in the dependencies of Insync?

The latest update broke insync on my Manjaro KDE. The insync tray icon is not responding, and files are not being synced. Please help! Thanks.

Thx for the update !

@Kr1ss, yes, still it would be cool if that fix was included in the PKGBUILD from the AUR already…

edit 1:

I made it work after applying the following diff:
