Alright folks! (@auroq and @techlive in particular). I've added the dependencies suggested after some research. They are not listed in the .deb file I'm pulling from insync, but the insync binaries do expect them. Hopefully that saves some trouble for others in the future.

For anyone updating a working insync who finds themselves surprised by new dependencies that they don't have installed, please comment so I can be aware of anything extra.

@thenaterhood, Thanks for maintaining this package! I ran into the following error which was fixed by installing "libxcomposite". You might want to add that to dependencies.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 6, in <module> File "", line 128, in <module> File "", line 125, in <module> File "isyncd/linux/headless/", line 49, in run File "", line 46, in main File "isyncd/linux/", line 2, in <module> File "isyncd/linux/", line 2, in <module> File "isyncd/linux/", line 7, in <module> File "PySide2/", line 26, in <module> File "PySide2/", line 17, in _bbfreeze_import_dynamic_module ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

techlive: I'm happy to add those as dependencies if they're needed, but I need to look more into that. I'm concerned with the fact that this is the first I'm hearing of a major dependency problem since I adopted the package - which may mean something else is going on, or that nobody else has complained - who knows.

On a fresh installed Arch Linux, no GUI, start Insync in headless mode, get "Insync doesn't seem to be running. Start it first." on every command.

.config/Insync/out.txt says a lot about missing libraries, pkgfile the missing library one by one, trial and error, finally get it working. shouldn't these be added as dependencies?

$ pkgfile

$ pkgfile

$ pkgfile

$ pkgfile

$ pkgfile

$ pkgfile

$ pkgfile

Also, refer to this article for headless setup.

RE: headless mode - I'm in agreement for that. RE: systemd userspace - That sounds reasonable to me.

I'll look into both of those.

blackhole commented on 2018-10-06 13:05

This is right. I personally think that systemd service should start insync always in headless mode.

windmagi commented on 2018-10-06 13:01

I was having trouble getting the service to work on a headless box running insync.

The solution was to edit the service file to point to insync-headless instead of insync.

The proposed insync.service for systemd userspace has a definition. IMHO this should be removed because systemd in userspace does not have these targets (only systemd system has both of them).

Apparently insync switches to Qt5 in version 1.5.1 and the tray icon works without sni-qt now. You may want to remove that from optdepends.

FYI: Insync appears to no longer be building i686 packages. I'm just the messenger here - if this affects you, contact Insync directly.

As Arch itself has dropped official support for i686, I'm dropping support here as well, unless Insync starts publishing i686 packages again. I'm not opposed to creating something like an insync-i686 AUR package as previous versions of Insync for i686 are still available for the time being, if that would benefit anyone.
