Hello @jfinas.

i've been working on a fix that is self-contained (no need to add files into system /usr/local/bin) and auto-detects QT installation paths (previous workaround took for granted that your QTLIB path was /usr/lib and your QTBIN path was /usr/bin)

1.- must be patched to add QSync bin dir to path so it can find new added /usr/local/bin/QNAP/QsyncClient/kde-open5

2.- New /usr/local/bin/QNAP/QsyncClient/kde-open5 script that autodetects QT prefixes needs to be added.

I will send you an email with patch details if you want to add them to package.

Ofcourse i'll be glad to be added into credits!

Hey, @djkork sorry for the slow response... I added your fix. Thanks for your help! Do you want me to credit you in the source?

I've found what's the issue when running under kde. This package includes QT 5.12 libraries in path "/usr/local/lib/QNAP/QsyncClient". But, if you are using kde, you probably have another version of QT libraries at your default lib paths "/usr/lib"

When you click buttons from app, it tries to open "system browser", "system file manager" using kde-open5, so it tries to open dolphin (as filemanager) from your system using QT 5.12 instead of your system libs (as changes LD_LIBRARY_PATH). And as QT versions mismatch (in my case QT 5.12 vs QT 5.14) symbols cannot be loaded.

Docens of errors like these are shown and app is not opened.

  • kde-open5: /usr/local/lib/QNAP/QsyncClient/ version `Qt_5.14' not found (required by kde-open5)
  • kde-open5: /usr/local/lib/QNAP/QsyncClient/ version `Qt_5.14' not found (required by /usr/lib/

I have found a workaround. Writing a shell script under /usr/local/bin called kde-open5 that restores LD_LIBRARY_PATH before calling true kde-open5 will say ld to load correct system QT libs.

====script /usr/local/bin/kde-open5====

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib
/usr/bin/kde-open5 $@

@djkork sorry to hear that... Those functions seem to work fine for me(i use gnome):

  • The "open sync folder" opens nautiulus, so you could try to install that.
  • the open sync folder seems to open the standard browser set in the gnome settings(but i don't know what package would be responsible for that).
  • the help buttons also open in the browser, so same problem as the previous point.

Sadly i don't really have time to debug this. But if you find a solution i will be happy to include it!

App doesn't work very well for me. It syncs :). But help buttons, opening folders or browser does nothing. I'm using kde, not gnome. Perhaps some packages required?

Anyway... good work. qsync is needed in arch by Qnap owners.
