I’m using Kde 5.21.5. Trying to mount an rclone remote on startup. The bash script is:
export RCLONE_CONFIG_PASS='xxx' && /usr/bin/rclone --vfs-cache-mode writes mount media:"" /home/jshm/mediafolder
Script is located /home/jshm/.config/scripts
When I click this manually it mounts the drive fine. But when I add it to the autostart scripts via System Settings, nothing happens at startup.
I can see the system added a link in .config/autostart-scripts pointing to the script, which works as well when I click it manually.
Is there any way I can view the logs of this script? Or can I add any lines to the script that will print out logs so I can see what’s going wrong?
I have another script which already mounts a different rclone remote without any issues at startup, which is why this is confusing me.
Any help would be appreciated.
Never even heard of rclone before (just had a quick look at the man page though).
How about showing the working script? If one works and the other doesn’t look at the differences, including how they’re run.
Perhaps try with
#!/usr/bin/bash. I assume you’re using the full path to the script.
You could add
-vv to the rclone command, and/or read
man rclone. Upon further reading, there’s also the –syslog flag.
export RCLONE_CONFIG_PASS='xxx' && /usr/bin/rclone -v --vfs-cache-mode writes mount media:"" /home/jshm/mediafolder > /path/to/log 2&>1
Where’s the remote path?
So - what’s the difference between the working one and the non-working one?
Got this working, but not because I figured out what was actually wrong.
After reading the man pages as recommended by @dmt I wondered if this was a cache issue and so changed the cache option from
Don’t know why this should make a difference but now the script is working at startup.
Thanks @dmt and @freggel.doe for your responses.
