Hi,
idk if i'm alone but after the latest update 1.3.8-1 insync won't launch anymore on Manjaro (Archbased).

Previous 1.3.6 still working just fine.

The symlink workaround suggested by @rzei is still needed AFAIK.

Thanks rzei.

Doing the symlink trick works for me too. Why not changing the published package itself to use the system libfontconfig then?

rzei commented on 2016-04-19 22:09

Another workaround that works for me is creating a new PKGBUILD with

ln -sf "/usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/insync/libfontconfig.so.1"

added in the package() function. This will replace the libfontconfig.so.1 bundled from insync with a symlink to the system one.

Thanks @Arthur. That's all I need, as I never used the gui anyways. Not sure why I didn't think of that, but I appreciate that you did!

insync start --headless

Another workaround is to start insync headless, so you can keep the latest version.

insync start --headless

This support thread mentions a 1.3.7 version to be available:
https://forums.insynchq.com/t/new-insync-version-1-3-6/4503

Although the issue reported there is regarding Qt libraries with Debian in that case but I created a new PKGBUILD using the Debian 64bit version available, packaged it, installed that 1.3.7 version and had no issues starting insync GUI again.

Thanks rzei - I downgraded pango as per that thread and it works. Hopefully insync fixes this soon.
