Running insync start --no-daemon results with:

ConfigParser.InterpolationSyntaxError: '%' must be followed by '%' or '(', found: '%java -jar-IY674V.desktop'

@dhux: I need more information in order to look into that. What errors do you get?

@yan12125: That's neat. It looks like insync tries to ship with its own versions of those libraries, but maybe unsuccessfully if it's using the system ones. If it's using the system ones, then I'll need to add some dependencies.

@thenaterhood: I have /usr/lib/insync/, too, and it's an ordinary file (not symlink). Maybe the cause is that I've enabled [testing], which contains fontconfig 2.13.0+10+g58f5285-1. FT_Done_MM_Var is a new function in freetype 2.9 [1], and I guess new fontconfig requires new freetype2.

Builds but won't start, even with yan12125's line added to the PKGBUILD.

yan12125: Thanks for the info! Very interesting; I have that file (and it's not a symlink) so I wonder how it got lost for you. I want to look into this more before I add that symlink to the package since I'm worried that could have side effects later.

I got an issue after upgrading to 1.4.3

$ insync start --no-daemon
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 6, in <module>
  File "", line 128, in <module>
  File "", line 116, in <module>
  File "isyncd/linux/headless/", line 49, in run
  File "", line 25, in main
  File "PySide/", line 26, in <module>
  File "PySide/", line 17, in _bbfreeze_import_dynamic_module
ImportError: /usr/lib/insync/ undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var

I "fixed" this by adding the following line after the libfontconfig line in PKGBUILD

ln -sf "/usr/lib/" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/insync/"

Well, waddya know. At long last, here's 1.4! Seems to have just been a drop-in, but let me know if anything is weird.

I've added sni-qt as an optional dependency for the system tray icon. I'm willing to make it required, but since the tray icon works for me without it, there might be more details there so I don't want to commit just yet.

I also updated the PKGBUILD so that the tar call is not verbose. It saves a little bit of time when untarring the package so it's not taking the time to write to the console.

RE: 1.4. Sweet! I'll start working on updating the package to it. Hopefully, it's just a drop-in replacement and everything will "just work".

Regarding the missing icon I can confirm that installing sni-qt package and restarting my PC made the insync icon to appear. I am using Gnome Desktop version 3.26.2.

Please, update. Thanks in advance!
