Hi, I’m ubuntu user.

If I install this version with dpkg, apt-get will continue updating further versions?


Thanks for fixing it this fast!

@Manuel_Quinteiro Yes, that is correct.

thanks for the quick fix!

i have a problem with the new version. i have been using it without any problem, but today i got “can’t download- part missing” error. and now can’t use your app anymore. how can you help me ?
and now it wants me to sign in. if i sign in, it will download the same document to another folder. and they are almost 500gb…

@fotografkaresi Please send your logs to for investigation: How to find the log files. You can compress them before sending to save space.

i already uninstalled the app and reinstalled. and delete all my files. then resync… thx

The new version does not support anymore “how to remove custom folder icon” ?
p.s. Using Ubuntu 14.04 and “Exec=insync start --no-custom-folder-icon” option.

@France Do you mean that the custom folder icon is still being shown? What file manager are you using?

Hello @lpugoy! First of all thanks for help… I’m using ubuntu 14.04 - nautilus :smile:

@France In my test the --no-custom-folder-icon still works. Please confirm if it was set when Insync is started by running ps -ef | grep insync after starting Insync.

Hello back… :slight_smile: Well I uploaded few pictures… The “blue” icon that I don’t want :slight_smile: . I also added where and how I changed the files:

sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/insync.desktop
gedit .config/autostart/insync.desktop

insync ver -

france 2284 1791 1 20:09 ? 00:00:03 ./insync start --no-custom-folder-icon
france 3204 3190 0 20:15 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto insync

Where I do wrong? :smile:

@France Hmm, does the custom folder icon still show even if you stop Insync? If it does please try this: gvfs-set-attribute /path/to/your/Insync/folder -t unset metadata::custom-icon.

@Ipugoy :frowning: still not working

@France What’s the output of the command gvfs-info /path/to/your/Insync/folder?

Hello @lpugoy!

I reinstalled insync and now is working. I have regular font icon. As I remember the difference is that this time I run insync using the dialogue that appears. Last time I just run it from unity. Maybe that was the trick. Thanks for your support and help!
