What is Insync?
Insync is software that can be used to sync Google Drive on a Linux system.
Can it run when I start the computer?
Let’s get started:
First make sure the setting “Start Insync on login” is ticked in the Preferences section.
Second, put the following script in $HOME/.config/Insync/ and call it launch.sh
#!/bin/bash # Sleep the script for 30 seconds to allow the computer to boot # Then start Insync sleep 30 && $(insync start)
Third, make the script executable:
chmod 755 launch.sh
The last step is to edit your i3 config file. Mine is in the default location:
Add this line to the config file:
exec_always --no-startup-id $HOME/.config/Insync/launch.sh
That’s it! Now the program will launch when i3 Window Manager is started. This works with i3 and i3-gaps.
