@hsantanna huh, indeed it isn't! That's out of my control since that's a file provided by insync. I believe a bug report would need to be filed with them.

/usr/share/doc/insync/changelog.gz is not a changelog.

@Nefelim4ag Thank you! I'll have a look at those changes and see about incorporating them.

May be you will found that useful

I could see insync.service using insync-headless, but I'm not sure I want to change that behaviour for insync@.service if people are now expecting it to provide a tray icon.

blackhole commented on 2017-09-04 09:52

I think that systemd service should use insync-headless, since insync is working fine only in this case and is more logical. If you want the tray icon, you can start it at boot with autostart options in your Desktop.

Apologies for the delay; package is now updated to

Hi, thank you for the solution! It works now as expected. Dirk

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!
