Cannot start insync in wsl2 ubuntu

I am trying to use insync in my wsl2 ubuntu setup. After I install it, I give the command - insync start, but when afterwards I type - insync show - the error says that insync hasn’t started. I want to use insync in this setup is because my programming setup is in ubuntu and I want to update the code to my google drive account. Is there a solution to this problem?

Hi @Ahsanur_Rahman! Could you share the input of insync start --no-daemon? Let me know as well the output of apt-cache policy insync.

Thank you!

Sorry for the 30 days late reply. Here is the output for

insync start --no-daemon

No worries @Ahsanur_Rahman - thank you for writing back! I have sent the output to our engineers and will update you accordingly :slight_smile:

Hi @Ahsanur_Rahman

Can you send us the output of apt-cache policy libegl1?
If it isn’t installed, can you install it by running sudo apt install libegl1?
