1.4 has been officially released now. @thenaterhood according to all @gmail accounts were given a free upgrade to Prime (all others (@gapps/3rd party) receive a 30% discount).

Installing sni-qt worked for me when using Gnome and not having a tray icon.

Thank you for your work on this package @thenaterhood - appreciate it may be a while before you can make 1.4 available in the AUR (it's beyond my skills)

@yochaigal: I don't have sni-qt installed, and my tray icon works. I'm willing to add sni-qt as an optional dependency once I can confirm that it's required on QT-based environments, since it appears it's not required on GTK ones.

@dahankzter: I'm not sure what you're experiencing. The package takes several minutes to build on a reasonably modern system (i5, 12GB ram, SSD in my case) which is not uncommon for AUR packages. The resulting package is around 200MB, which is a little on the large side for pacman packages, but should install in a reasonable amount of time (couple minutes, depending on the speed of your disk - it's a large number of files). The short answer, I suppose, is "yes it is supposed to take several minutes". There isn't much I can do to improve on that, other than make the decompression not print to the console which might save a minute or so in the build.

Omg is it supposed to take super long time to install?

I'm concerned if something changed, since this is pinned to a version. I'll investigate.

After a recent update I wasn't able to see the tray icon. I installed sni-qt and it started working. Perhaps it should e a dependency?

@notuxius You're welcome!

I'm aware of 1.4. I need to look more into the upgrade path for Insync, since at one point I think 1.3.x users who were given free licenses (such as myself) won't be able to upgrade to 1.4 for free, so 1.3 will be around for some time. Given that, I don't think it would be the right course to update this package to 1.4 - perhaps a rename so this would become insync-legacy, and a new package for the very latest insync once it's released would be the best way to go.

My goal is to make sure that everyone is taken care of. Maybe a insync-beta package would be in order for 1.4, for those who want to be part of the beta.

@thenaterhood Hi. Do you think about adding of current beta package? - Thanks for your work!

@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.
