Clstryn: That might be a question for the insync forums. If you're feeling brave you could try looking through the insync library directory

Tried installing Insync from here on my GPD Pocket 1, and upon running the start command:

$ insync start
/usr/lib/insync/insync: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: g_memdup2

I still do not understand why it is referring to libwacom. Is there anyway to bypass libwacom dependency and run directly?

$ insync start --no-daemon output also shows the same output.

checkrebuild complains about => not found

Also, does anybody else have a problem of the tray icon not showing when launching from user service? I've tried removing DISPLAY=0 and adding After graphical-target but that did not work.

@adamis unfortunately I don't have any suggestions. Sounds like it could be an insync bug, you might want to take a look at the forums and possibly start a thread.

I have been having an issue with Insync when syncing many large video files to my Google Drive account and it crashing after ~24 hours. I am running Arch with KDE. Everything works fine but the insync GUI crashes roughly once a day. I have dozens of mp4 files that range in size between 4gb to 30gb. I have been trying to get these uploaded for over the last two weeks now. Because Insync insists on spreading my limited upload bandwidth over 12 files, I can only get partial file uploads across 12 files with only a couple successfully finishing before the daily crash happens. Restarting the GUI usually means resuming where the files were left off so all is not entirely lost but still having to manually restart daily.

Any suggestions?

@Schatzs, thanks for figuring this out! I've also been updating the insync AUR package in place for a while now. I guess there's a reason why the wiki page for makepkg says to use makepkg --clean before updating a package! :D

Following the workaround from @Schatzs, I realize that I haven’t the libdrm file. But after I followed the idea that there was some left files making troubles I:

Uninstall insync clean my insync AUR local repository, start a new fresh one package and install the last version and the UI start working again.

@thenaterhood - Yes, on my system the causing the problem is in /usr/lib/insync. If it is not part of the current package contents then it must be left over from an older version. I've had insync installed for a long time.

@Schatzs thanks for the followup! You're referring to ${pkgdir}/usr/lib/insync/ as the location of

On a clean makepkg I don't see that file on my end. Is it possible there was something cached somewhere?

Since it doesn't seem to exist for me I have no problem updating the PKGBUILD to move it if it happens to exist if it will help other folks too. If it's something cached maybe there's a better fix, maybe I can do some reading on PKGBUILD directives to make it less likely to happen again if insync drops a .so from the package.

The insync GUI has been crashing for a few months now on my KDE/xorg setup. I found today that if I rename to (in addition to the fix) the GUI no longer crashes. I was getting gl/mesa/drm errors on startup prior to this additional change.
