@cirlo I contacted their support when I had trouble running pCloud in Sway with GDK_BACKEND=wayland (without ",x11"). Their response was: "Unfortunately, we are having troubles updating the app to the latest electron versions because of inside security libraries that we are using. Our devs know about this issue and electron version update is already planed."

warthan07's workaround works for me too.

In case anyone needs it, here's the patch.

@warthan07, I encountered the same error today... I applied your bypass (I'd not find alone) and it works for me too... I needed to install debugedit to solve other issues in my last updates... Probably a link, for sure.

Not sure how reproducible this problem is (only tested on my own laptop and desktop computers in updated arch systems), but recent installs of this package seem to give a malformed appimage that cannot be executed:

This doesn't look like a squashfs image.

Cannot mount AppImage, please check your FUSE setup.
You might still be able to extract the contents of this AppImage
if you run it with the --appimage-extract option.
for more information
open dir error: No such file or directory

Indeed, the app image in the pkgdir after running makepkg weighs much less than the source appimage (which executes just fine, so it is not a fuse problem imo). Fortunately, adding the option !debug after !strip solves the problem for me. This would suggest the problem comes from debugedit (maybe a recent makepkg update changed the default option?), but I did not investigate further.

1.14.5-1.AppImage has been failing the validity check for me for several days.

I just asked pCloud when they are going to upgrade there app to support Wayland and the following is the response I got back and I wanted to share: Thank you for the e-mail.

Currently we have no plans to support Wayland, but I have forwarded your request to our developers, and when enough people ask for this, we might start supporting Wayland.

If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Kind regards, Jacko Leenders pCloud's Technical Support

After installing the recently released version 1.14.3 of the package, the application still indicates that its version is 1.14.2.

Dependency on appmenu-gtk-module is missing

@DiV21dSREL I ran a debug version for pCloud support, which allowed them to fix the issue. Confirmed resolved for me in a debug release, and I guess the bug-fix will make it into the next full release.

DiV21dSREL commented on 2023-06-08 07:44 (UTC)

@DiV21dSREL I contacted pCloud support who got me to reproduce the crash with a debug version and then told me:

Your case was forwarded to the developers and we'll probably have a fix with the next pCloud Drive version for Linux. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.
