@yan12125: that's a good question, I never tried! From your experience it seems plausible. I'll play with it - if I can ditch a dependency that's never a bad thing.

Is python2 required to run insync? Apparently insync comes with its own python executable (/usr/lib/insync/py), and it works if I remove the python2 package forcibly.

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.

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.
