Ok, maybe I can try to install this app under pure xfce environment at some time to see the error for myself. But as a first
guess, I am afraid you are running the app with some dependencies missing. Can you try to install libappindicator3 from AUR
before running the app again?

replace with zip in rpm-package cannot work out too.

Another question is: from which command you get the IOError message?

xzy3186 commented on 2012-09-17 05:47


So you have tried to replace local with the file from amd64.deb directly, right? Hm, I can not reproduce
your error quickly as there is no x86_64 archlinux around me at present. I have one suggestion: instead of getting from amd64.deb, could you have a try with rpm from following
or KDE:

By the way, which DE are you using?

frat commented on 2012-09-17 05:21

really weird. i replaced the with original file in the amd64.deb packgae,error stay the same.

i checked /usr/lib/insync permission and ownership ,all files are set to root permission and ownership,and the size is 5.3m.

xzy3186 commented on 2012-09-17 04:25

It sounds very weird. But fortunately, 5.4m means the zip file itself is not corrupted.
Then could you check permission and ownership of all the files under /usr/lib/insync?

frat commented on 2012-09-17 03:16

ls: cannot access /usr/lib/insync/,: No such file or directory

but when i use ls /usr/lib/insync,output show : insync py exits.And i can see the file in the file manager too,size of the is 5.4m

Could you paste your output of: ls -lh /usr/lib/insync/, please?
