On the forum they announced v 3.0.17.

Edit : 3.0.18 now

@teacher4711 I've been getting the exact same error for months. Also on xfce. I, however, can't get insync to run, no matter what I do.

@erikdubois When I start insync via the icon from the start menu or the console (insync start) under xfce I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "isyncd/linux/headless/", line 108, in ipc_insync

File "", line 228, in meth

error: [Errno 111] Connection refused

i3 works.

xfce only works for me after (tray icon appears and insync window appears) after starting the service sudo systemctl start insync@<user>.service

I noticed a possible issue : when I click on "local selective sync" the program crashes (using manjaro testing).

@NoSync No, it is usable. I have been using it on Linux since the first beta of version 3 (which really was a hot mess). Few versions later, however, and it's perfectly functional. I have used it on Mint for months, and more recently Manjaro. It seems to work fine, however, as someone else commented, it is missing some features (e.g. symlinks).

I thought I had read some comments about Insync 3 here, but they seem to have been removed. Is it still so unstable as to not being usable?

Thanks for the insync 3 PKGBUILD. It's working on Manjaro. But the main problem with insync 3 is that it doesn't support symlinks (they say it will but this is a major regression for me).

@erikdubois Thank you for the new pkgbuild. It works out of the box with manjaro kde.

@erikdubois Thanks. So this works well for me (on Manjaro). Installs without issue. Everything looks present and correct. Will keep it running for a few days.
