Install insync without root premission


#1

Hi Insync team,

I am using a CentOS Linux 7 system. I would like to install Insync on my home folder without root permissions. Is it possible? Could you tell me the steps?

Thanks a lot,
Best,
Esin

Hi @esin_karahan,

Sorry for not responding sooner! Please try installing our Insync Portable build found here: https://www.insynchq.com/downloads

Shoot me a message for any issues. :slight_smile: Thanks!

Hi @miamoran thanks for the reply.

Which portable build are you referring?

I downloaded the package for CentOS 7 (insync-1.5.4.37362-el7.x86_64). But I was not able to install without root permissions. I want to install the Insync in my home folder not in under usr.

I guess I need to something like this:

apt-get source package
cd package
./configure --prefix=$HOME
make
make install

But I could not find the configure file of insync.

Thanks a lot!
