@aradar: Regarding your js: Failed to load https://app.posthog... error, I'm getting that too now. Unfortunately, I don't have any answer for it and neither do the Insync forums currently.

I'm hesitant to swap the package to a different distro base since it appears we're not the only distro having a crash problem with changing the target directory. It does sound like some folks have had luck uninstalling and reinstalling.

For anyone else also struggling with this, downgrading to the latest PKGBUILD with version 3.8.6 resolved the problem for me. I found this solution in the following two posts in the insync forum: [1] [2]

I guess I will stick to this version until the problem is resolved according to the official forums :)

By "Please change the source to Ububtu 2024", I think that @petergdd means to change _dist= from "bookworm" to "noble" in the PKGBUILD. I can replicate the experience of inync crashing when trying to change the target directory with "bookworm" specified.

Please change the source to Ububtu 2024, then the app will no longer crash when you try to change the target directory.

I haven't personally experienced any problems today. Your error sounds like something non package related, maybe some telemetry endpoint insync wants to talk to is/was unavailable. Just speculation on my part though.

If you continue to have a problem you may want to take a look on the insync forums. I do see a post from a little over a week ago that sounds like what you're seeing, but no resolution.

For me, the package suddenly stopped working (the GUI opens super slowly and is not responsive when it finally opens, and it is also not doing any synchronization anymore in this state).

If I run the client with insync start --no-daemon I get a bunch of js: Failed to load<removed>&ip=<removed>&_=<removed>&ver=1.26.0: ... messages but nothing really helpful.

So far tried to solve this by switching the PKGBUILD to the package for debian trixie, but this didn't help.

Is this just on my end, or is it also broken for others at the moment?

Ayyyy that's good news! I've updated the package. Thanks for opening a forum thread.

With the new release of, I can confirm that the issue is solved for me. I only updated the version and checksum in the PKGBUILD, so not sure if the patches affect anything.

makepkg --clean did not work for me either. I didn't enable insync service, but KDE autostart it for me too.
I opened a thread on insync forum:
Feel free to add your information about this issue.

Building with makepkg --clean did not work for me. Still having the same problem. Guess I'll wait on an updated upstream.
