I installed the 184.108.40.206179 headless version on Linux Ubuntu Xenial amd64.
I started Insync with
insync-headless start --no-daemon and I created a new account specifying a local
/mnt/mount path which is a smbmount to a Samba share I have to bidirectionally sync to Google Drive:
//localhost/share on /mnt/drive type cifs (rw,relatime,vers=1.0,cache=strict,username=drive,domain=DOMAIN,uid=0,noforceuid,gid=0,noforcegid,addr=127.0.0.1,unix,posixpaths,serverino,mapposix,acl,rsize=1048576,wsize=65536,echo_interval=60,actimeo=1,user=drive)
The path is correctly mounted and I can list all files and directories into it.
I added a new account with the following command:
insync-headless add_account -a [my_key] -p /mnt/drive/ -e "ms-office"
and I waited for long (30 minutes), but nothing is synced on Google Drive (which is actually empty).
I also tried with the command
insync-headless force_sync / but nothing happened.
I investigated to find out if I have errors or something like this, and I ran these commands:
root@server-z1:/mnt# insync-headless get_status
root@server-z1:/mnt# insync-headless get_errors
root@server-z1:/mnt# insync-headless get_sync_progress
No syncing activities
If I run
insync-headless manage_selective_sync [account_email] I get a very long “Loading” message and nothing happens in the Ncurses interface. If I type CTRL+C to end the interface I get the Error communicating with Insync process.
If I try to stop Insync with
insync-headless quit it doesn’t stop and I don’t get any result on the command line.
Could you help me to better understand how it works, please?
Thank you very much!
