I'm not seeing the same problem. There was a Qt issue before that resulted in a core dump that was solved by running qtconfig-qt4 and choosing a different GUI style than GTK+. Try giving that a shot.

another issue:

insync does not work (strace output: +++ killed by SIGSEGV (core dumped) +++)

insync-headless works!

Anyone having the same issue. I just completely remove the ~/.config/Insync folder and than it started working again. This started happening after I updated insync version

Strange thing is that

> sudo insync start --no-daemon works fine.

So it should be an issue related to local configuration or file permission

Insync is not starting since my update. It seems ZLIB version 1.2.9 is not found. My current zlib version is 1.2.11

> insync start --no-daemon

Very strange: systemd service is running fine, but no sync. Only if I type "insync start" from a terminal this is working.

@LiamPowell is there anything package-side I can do to avoid that being a problem?

The issue is caused by QGtkStyle, run qtconfig-qt4 and change your GUI style to something other then GTK+

I haven't encountered any problems myself, but I can look into it and see what I come up with. If it's an issue with Qt we might be stuck waiting for an update from insync or from Qt.

Hopefully it's something I can fix here.

Same issue here, no idea what's wrong.

Message from coredumpctl
Message: Process 7825 (insync) of user 1000 dumped core.

Stack trace of thread 7825:
#0 0x0000000000001250 n/a (n/a)

backtrace says it's Qt related problem
