I'm aware insync has a new version, but it appears to have some stability problems, based on their forums and the fact that I can't get it to run.

I'm working on it, and I'll post it once there's some semblance of stability.

@JuniorTonny If insync otherwise works, I'll venture that what you're seeing is a problem with insync, and not one I'm able to address, unfortunately. I'd take a look at the insync help center ( and if that doesn't give you any answers, email their support team.

it does not upload very large files via g suit's shared drive, but by the browser does normally, I don't know if it's a problem with my distro or Insync, I haven't tested it on another distro yet sorry for my typos friend, i'm brazilian and i am using google translator to communicate

@JuniorTonny what exactly is the problem you're having? Keep in mind that I am not a developer of insync, I just maintain the AUR package. Depending what your problem is, you might need to contact insync directly. I also recommend against allowing random people on the internet to access your computer - not a good idea.

You can make the payment with permission to have shared access, and I have a shared drive with it and am trying to reach about 300gb, is it because of the size? if you want the step a teamviewer for u see my machine my facebook is: my whatsapp/telegram is: +5547988717595

@JuniorTonny: This should work fine on XFCE (in fact, that's where I use it). Assuming, of course you're not running into the same problem as soundscape.

@soundscape that's...interesting. I tried to replicate that, but I didn't run into it. By any chance, what version(s) of Python are you running? Insync appears to provide its own Python, meaning that there might be some room to experiment with either removing the system Python, or removing insync's Python (and symlinking to the system one).

@thenaterhood Can confirm that it only crashed while syncing with the GUI open.

  • GUI closed, sync in progress - No crash
  • GUI open, no sync/sync complete - No crash
  • GUI open, sync in progress - CRASH

@taflaj awesome! glad to hear it!

@soundscape that's very strange.

@thenaterhood Today I got the update. Installed it without any issues. Insync is working fine. Thank you!

Build 1.5.7-3 is crashing with coredump:

/#18 0x0000560acd7a4807 n/a (insync)

/#19 0x0000560acd78f2e6 PyObject_Call (insync)

/#20 0x0000560acd796b66 n/a (insync)

/#21 0x0000560acd78f2e6 PyObject_Call (insync)

/#22 0x0000560acd7490cd PyEval_CallObjectWithKeywords (insync)

/#23 0x00007f8f88754509 n/a (

/#24 0x00007f8f887547af n/a (

/#25 0x0000560acdb39d80 _Py_NotImplementedStruct (insync)

Fresh build & install.

Edit: Seems to only crash with the GUI open, possibly only during a sync. Sync with the GUI closed seems to run fine.
