I noticed that the Fedora Insync repo isn’t yet accepting F22.
I had to make the following changes:
–> previously: baseurl=$releasever/
Fedora 22 will be widely released in a few weeks, so it would be a very good idea to fix this…

For 1.2.8 Plasma 5 Insync status notifier is still not showing. More information on the changes
for Plasma 5 can be found here:

When can we expect to get this fixed? Thanks!

Just heard that you’ve removed the requirement to access our contacts, so downloaded the Windows version and started my trial.

I’ve encountered an odd bug. After I complete the setup, I navigate to the sync’ed folder on my local drive, and press right-mouse button because I want to paste some files, and the windows explorer dissapears (ie. it has crashed in some manner). This happens consistently.

If I press ctrl-V to paste then it is OK - I just can’t get away with right mouse button.

I’m on Windows 8.1 64 bit.

@Tom Can you send your logs to Thanks.

Looked at ‘how to find the log files’ but there is no ‘support centre’ in the pop-up on my machine.

Looked for the program files in all the usual places but couldn’t find it - was looking for something starting with ‘insync’.

@Tom Do you see a :heart: on the Insync top bar?

No, nor do I really see anything that could be called a ‘top bar’.

On th left side are feed, progress, incoming shares, actions required, and errrors, and there is nothing under errors. There is also a pause sync’ing option.

@Tom Sent you a private message.

For the Linux build we enabled the FULL synchronous option for sqlite: ( This could cause extreme slowdown for some users. Please test if this occurs in your system. To revert to the old setting, please run Insync with the --synchronous-normal option (insync start --synchronous-normal).

@gbcox We just enabled the repo for F22, thanks for pointing it out.

For the tray icon in Plasma 5, we’re still looking into how to resolve it. In the worst case you can try installing wmsystemtray in the meantime:

I’ll pass on wmsystemtray… insync is the only application I’ve encountered that seems to have issues with status notifier.
