Terence P.

Posted 1379150394 (Edited 1381766604)
Changelog: 1.0.22
Feature: Added option to not automatically convert Google-format files.
Windows: Installation fixes
Windows: Improvements to shell extensions: removed unused icon, explorer crash fix
Windows: Reduced the number of attempts to fetch the auto-proxy-config after which it is discarded altogether.
Windows: Fix for login browser unable to proceed after the user has selected “No” on the exit pop-up (which is rendered if no account has been added yet and the user attempts to close the login browser).
Mac: Fixed a redirection issue when logging in.
Linux: Deprecated insync-kde-do.
Linux: Added option to run Insync in headless mode.
Linux: Deprecated symlink-cache.json.
Linux: Fixed case of context menu and emblems not showing when accessing Insync folders through a symlink.
Linux: Fixed exception raised when there was an error decoding a file path.
Linux: Added a default APT sources entry for Insync if system is not Debian, Linux Mint, or Ubuntu.
Linux: Added functionality for controlling Insync through the command line.
Linux: Added explicit version dependencies for libc6 (deb) and glibc (rpm).
Linux: Added man pages.
Linux: Added insync-headless package and insync-headless command.
Linux: Improved way of determining if Insync is still running in the package scripts.
Linux: Deprecated insync-cli.
Linux: Implemented closing a dialog by pressing the Escape key.
Linux: Added thunarx-python and python-nemo to the APT repo, so external PPAs would not be added anymore.
Linux: Increased compatibility of package scripts with python 2.6.
Linux: Improved getting the default file manager in Xfce.
Linux: Reversed the --daemon flag. Normal Insync behavior now is to detach from the terminal when started without the --no-daemon flag.
Linux: Added setting of custom Insync folder icon in KDE.

Ubuntu: 64 bit, 32 bit headless: 64 bit, 32 bit
Debian: 64 bit, 32 bit headless: 64 bit, 32 bit
Fedora: 64 bit, 32 bit headless: 64 bit, 32 bit

Instructions and options for headless app.

This is a forums-only build. This is now pushed to live.

Please help test. Thanks.

Hello, glad to see headless support , I was waiting for that to switch to insync.

But sadly it doesn't install on debian squeeze -

insync-headless is afhankelijk van libc6 (>= 2.13); maar:
Versie van libc6 op dit systeem is 2.11.3-4.

Is there a way arounf this or should I just wait till my NSA-distro (openmediavault) upgrades to wheezy ?

Looks like we're missing the option in the business admin panel to force the do not convert option for all users as promised.

No covert support! Brilliant, that's a bucket of licenses to buy now… Oh well, every silver lining...

Hi jack.

Unfortunately there is no workaround at the moment. We'll try to support older distributions soon.

Please make the output of insync-headless get_new_shares script friendly -
right now the command insync-headless get_new_shares | grep ' was shared to ' gives an error.

I was trying to write a script that will automatically accept new shrares from selected contacts

Hi Ajay.

If it's okay with you, could you put here the outputs of the commands "insync-headless get_new_shares" and "insync-headless get_new_shares | grep 'was shared to'"? Thanks.

Anything on the admin panel option for do not convert?

CPU at idle - all sunk - is about 3.7% on a 3.0Ghz i7 - seems a bit higher than it needs to be - I'd cheerfully trade responsiveness to file changes for CPU.

Actually, I'd love if I could configure Insync to only wake up once a minute to sync.

@Donavon - Please see our how-to entry on no-convert here. Thanks.

Donavon, there's no admin panel for do not convert yet, but it's on our todo list.

Luis -
I am not able to redirect or pipe the output of insync-headless

insync-headless get_new_shares > /tmp/shares.txt
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 6, in <module>
File "", line 128, in <module>
File "", line 131, in <module>
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe7' in position 637: ordinal not in range(128)


insync-headless get_new_shares | grep 'was shared to'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 6, in <module>
File "", line 128, in <module>
File "", line 131, in <module>
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe7' in position 637: ordinal not in range(128)

however the bare command does output to screen

insync-headless get_new_shares
some_file_named_FULL_IMAGE.rar was shared to

Hi Ajay.

I see. I was able to confirm that bug as well. The fix will be available in the next release.
