Python2 depend is wrong. Insync 3 is built with Python 3, see and just review at the files in the distributed deb package.
I haven't tested yet in a chroot but I believe there's no need for the python depend, just the fact that the app didn't break with the Python 3.8 update should tell you that it's self-contained.

@Ludde @iosonofabio Thanks, that worked! Embarrassed that I didn't think of it :)

P.S. The icon wouldn't show up in the top bar until I installed this package and activated with GNOME Tweak Tool:

Indeed, confirm that rm -rf the aur git folder for insync and recloning solved it. Thank you!

@hsseung @@iosonofabio, I had the same issue. It started working after I removed my git-directory and cloned it again from scratch. I also noticed that the size of the package shrinked from ~700mb to ~300mb when doing this.

I'm still getting the same error as @iosonofabio. Does anyone have suggestions?

And just bumping the pkgrel helps with ...?

Something in the recent updates broke my 1.5.3 version. And I have not been able to get a version 3.x running yet. overGdrive has a product that supports Archlinux and priced very reasonable. I will test drive it at least until insync works for me again.

Thanks. This is still not working on my machine. When I debug using

insync start --no-daemon

I get the following error:

You can change the python2 requirement to just python. Version 3 added python3 support. I changed the PKGBUILD to python and it works fine.

Same problem here. Tried some rewiring via LD_LIBRARY_PATH but could not really get it to work.

This is a bummer cause insync 3 supports both GDrive and OneDrive and I would need both.

Thanks anyway for maintaining!
