Linux support

I have decided to move from Windows to Linux on my personal computer and unfortunately Linux support is very limited.

There is indeed a version of the portable app, but there is no mounted drive, or sync app, which seriously lowers the experience.

I know there is WebDAV available, but it works very very slow.

Apparently it is also not possible to use bisync from rclone because of issues with time records…

Is there a “sync” app in the roadmap? Otherwise, icedrive is not really a good solution for the linux (and there are not that many available, so this is actually a niche market)

As a work-around, I just published a user-guide on how to mount IceDrive as a virtual drive on macOS and Linux using rclone. If you want to dive deeper, you can read it here.

Why do you want a sync-app? I use the Icedrive AppImage and it works perfectly, even opens a native file editor by default.

Great workaround, that cache bit is going to work wonders, I believe.

will try it later today

I have 75% of my 1Tb occupied, with many (too many, I know) pictures and videos.

In my workflow, I need to be able to have a local folder, where I can edit photos, and later have them synchronized.

The Appimage is ok, but I can’t tell any other programs (picture editor) to look at the appimaage, I need either a mounted drive (which is too slow under webdav), or a sync folder, where I make changes locally that get synced to the cloud.

It seems the previous reply will help me, with a cached mounted drive.

We hear you on this. We know our current support for Linux users is limited but our dev team are aware of this and are working to resolve asap.
