[Solved] Rclone and encryption

  • Hi,

    I saw some posts that rclone mount for GDrive is working on Libreelec with encryption. How can I install rclone and mount my Drive on LE 8.2.5?

    Thanks

  • Rclone is not a stock LE application, nor (AFAIK) is there an add-on for it.


    The standard .deb, nor running the install script will work, as LE is a read only file system. However, rclone is a single file and has no need for additional dependencies, so it can be installed on LE.


    1. Download relevant zip file


    Where xxxx = amd64 or arm or arm64 depending on your hardware


    Code
    wget https://downloads.rclone.org/rclone-current-linux-xxxx.zip


    2. Unzip file


    Code
    unzip rclone-current-linux-xxxx.zip


    3. Create executable directory

    Code
    cd ~
    mkdir bin


    4. Edit profile

    Code
    nano
    /storage/.profile
    PATH=/storage/bin:$PATH


    5. Copy rclone into bin

    Code
    cp rclone-current-linux-xxxx/rclone /storage/bin


    Logout and log back in again


    6. Check rclone in PATH

    Code
    which rclone


    Should say /storage/bin/rclone


    ----------- You’re ready to go -----------

  • Hi!

    I know this is old, but I discovered rclone recently and wanna use it in my rPI. This tutorial still work?

    Because when I try cp rclone-v1.51.0-linux-arm/rclone ../bin it shows:

    Code
    cp: can't create '../bin/rclone': Read-only file system

  • Hmm, looks like there may be an error.


    Try cp rclone-current-linux-xxxx/rclone /storage/bin


    I've changed the original

    Worked like a charm! Thanks Iridium
