@ectospasm - I receive the same error when I start from the command line, but it doesn't keep the SpiderOakONE client from running. I imagine your problem is something else. I'd suggest deleting your ~/.config/SpiderOakONE folder, then running the config wizard again.

If you continue to have problems, you should contact SpiderOak Support.

Ever since this update was released, SpiderOakONE doesn't launch for me. It simply prints out the following warning if I launch it from a terminal shell, then a long, long pause before exiting with a zero status:

"sni-qt/22935" WARN 20:42:56.607 void StatusNotifierItemFactory::connectToSnw() Invalid interface to SNW_SERVICE

I figured some incompatibility between my ~/.config/SpiderOakONE and this new version, so I moved it out of the way. SpiderOakONE still gives the same behavior, only the splash screen shows for several minutes, while the terminal output is precisely the same.

Apologies for the delay. Apparently this update has been out for a while, but I didn't know until now.

Update is very minor: they finally fixed the libz error by upgrading the included libz file. I've also had to create a new email, so I've updated my address in the PKGBUILD if any of you need it.

EDIT: forgot to mention that since SpiderOak updated their provided libz package, I've removed the ugly hack I previously had in the PKGBUILD.

Checksum fails.

@blacktav Yeah, I blame gtk3.

@cb474 indeed. The command-line "error" I was getting seems to be fairly innocuous - according to SpiderOak
The real problem is more likely related to system instability as you suggest - not soon after, my keyboard was killed and my xfce effectively died, with both staying dead even after reboots, removing and reinstalling all xfce bins & config. Xfce remains non-functional for one particular user.
However, lxde & even kde appear to be fine, SpiderOak GUI runs OK & even my keyboard works again. Go figure

@blacktav I was having a similar problem where the gui would not come up most of the time, if I clicked on the SpiderOak icon in my notification area. Sometimes it seemed like if I quit Spideroak and ran it again from a terminal then it would work. But it was very inconsistent.

For me it seemed to start when there were a bunch of updates to the Mate desktop, completing the shift to GTK3. (Curiously I never had the problem on a separate LMDE system running the Mate desktop.) Then after a while it fixed itself, which I assumed had to do with some further update.

So I wonder if it's your system and not SpiderOak? Sorry, I know that's not super helpful, but I thought the extra information might be worth sharing.

@blacktav This looks like an upstream issue to me. I found a page that might help: If that doesn't work, you'll need to contact the SpiderOak's support team yourself, but keep in mind that they don't officially support Arch.

Command line error & log file at

Spideroak seems to start spider with an icon in notification bar; when the spider finishes an alert pops-up saying "Backend process has quit"

@blacktav try running it from the command line and paste the output. Use a pastebin service if possible.
