when using git clone all worked well.

the latest update does not work because of the linked source:

@papa33: I was in fact experiencing similar problems, and even some more, like inconsistent files across different machines on the pcloud-drive. After I was clearing the cache and re-logging in, things would be ok for a while, but then same would happen. (Eventually reverted to dropbox for critical sync needs, and only use pcloud more for storage.) I also contacted them - they indeed give generic feedback. The problem is that the development does not seem to be open-source, and there is no way to reach the developers directly. It is too bad, because it is otherwise a great service in terms of fuse speed capability - easily overtakes everything else I have used.

I have (it's not new) a major problem with pcloud-drive. After a few hours of use, it simply stop syncing local and remote folders (as far as I can say, it is more a problem of sync local-->remote, the remote folder is not updated any more, whatever change I do locally). I have contacted them but they avoid really answering and just keep me asking the same questions like how do you sync? --> well, I use pcloud-drive, no? what files do you sync? --> well, the usual stuff... Like duprezjm they asked me to install the debug version, but it was totally useless... Question : Anyone else with similar problems? I would like to know if I am alone (or not) with this issue. Thanks.

HI, I got a problem of synchronization with the last version of pcloud-drive (1.4.5) I wrote to pcloud support and they sell me a debug version to install.... But I don't know how to write (or modify) the pkbuild... Can you help me ? If, you are ok, I can ask pcloud if they are ok if I send to you the link of the debug-version... JM

pcloud-drive (1.4.1-1) will not start if libxss is not present. Maybe it should be added as a dependency?

If dependencies are installed first and it resumes trying to build pcloud-drive, it attempts to download pcloud instead of pcloud drive the first time and fails. Starting up makepkg again builds successfully. Thank you for the convenient package. Not complaining, but thought I should let you know about this issue.

Fix for me: install sni-qt.

coxackie commented on 2018-09-17 16:48

Same here - tray icon always missing after update to 1.4.1, even if it starts. (Also getting "init failed" sometimes.) Even when the pCloudDrive is mounted, any changes there do not seem to be saved to the drive.

Edit: Suddenly, the problems disappeared. Not sure what changed.

papa33 commented on 2018-09-17 16:41

Same problem, although "sometimes" it starts. But the tray icon is always missing (Cinnamon).

Edit : I removed /home/user/.pcloud and /home/user/.config/pcloud folders. Then it started normally (I had to login of course). But then I quit/restarted and it did not start again ("init failed").
