[FIXED] InSync crashing when "open window app" is selected in tray button (Debian 11)

Insync seems to be working correctly, except when I try to open its window. There was no problem two days ago.

insync show also fails.

I’m running Insync 3.7.7 (from apt repositories) in Debian 11.

This started happenning to me, too. Out of nothing. Ubuntu 18.04 with upstream kernel and Mesa 22.

Here’s more info: 20.04 Insync GUI (version crashes . It is a known bug. Downgrading to 3.7.6 should help.

Hey @peci1 and @jander,

A fix has been lined up for the Debian 11 crashing issue on 3.7.7! We’re running a few more tests to ensure that we have a smooth release :slight_smile:

Same here (Insync version on Ubuntu 20.04)

Hi @spyrostheodoridis !

Could you send the output of:
lsb_release -c
apt-cache policy insync

Thank you!

FWIW, I am having the same problem with Debian Sid.

$ lsb_release -c
Codename:       sid
$ apt-cache policy insync
  Version table:
 *** 500
        500 http://apt.insync.io/debian buster/non-free amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Downgrading to 3.7.6 works.

Hey all, please give these builds a try and let us know if the crashing issue persists:

Insync 3.7.8 for Linux users

Hi Mia,
here’s the output:
$ lsb_release -c
Codename: focal
apt-cache policy insync
Version table:
*** 500
500 http://apt.insync.io/ubuntu focal/non-free amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Hi Mia,
the problem still persists even after the 3.7.8 update.

The newer builds still crash in Debian 11.
Version 3.7.6 working fine.

@jander @spyrostheodoridis Thank you for the feedback and my apologies for the persistent issue on 3.7.8.

Could you please email your logs.db and out.txt files to support@insynchq.com with the link to this post, if you have not? We will look into the crashing issues so we can line up a permanent fix for it.

Hello! For Debian 11 (Bullseye) users who tried the v3.7.8, could you please download this again? https://www.insynchq.com/downloads

For reference, the previous release I posted provided a Buster build instead of Bullseye, and this might be a factor as to why some users have reported that it’s not working as expected. We truly apologize for overlooking this detail.

Let us know how it goes! @jander @finotti

I got insync_3.7.8.50362-focal_amd64.deb from here and it is working fine on Debian 11. The packages for xenial and bionic still crash.

I didn’t send the logs… Where can I find logs.db and out.txt? If they still matter I’ll be happy to help.

Anyway, the issue seems to be solved.

Can we get an rpm to test this? I’m on opensuse tumbleweed.

Hi @klm,

I’ll raise this to our engineer. Is it related to openSUSE Leap 15.4 Support by any chance?

Hi @jander,

You may still send your logs.db and out.txt files. Apologies for not including this in the previous replies; the logs can be found in ~/.config/Insync.

Doesn’t seem like it. My error is pretty much like this one, insync will load into the tray but will crash if I try to open it. I’m using the insync repo (http://yum.insync.io/opensuse-tumbleweed/rolling/) but it’s still at 3.7.0.

@klm Gotcha, will update you once I have more info from our team :slight_smile:

@klm Btw, could you run insync start --no-daemon and send the output either here or via email (support@insynchq.com)? Thanks :slight_smile:
