What is the problem you are having with rclone?
I want to configure any other headless Raspberry Pi with rclone for Google Photos. I used to follow this guide which worked fine.
However, the long URL that I used to get is now just a short one
If your browser doesn't open automatically go to the following link: http://127.0.0.1:53682/auth?state=od2GwGrDDzqIpMSeQAIwJQ
But when I paste this into my Mac's browser, I can't reach the connection.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
- os/version: raspbian 10.13
- os/kernel: 5.10.103-v7l+ (armv7l)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: arm
- go/version: go1.19.4
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
Choose N when asked for auto config.
Follow the instructions rclone gives . You'll need a copy of rclone on your mac to run rclone authorize .
That procedure will work.
Google disabled the very convenient copy a URL method of Auth (OOB) which is what you used before most likely.
Correct, if I/we hadn't rephased the "auto config" question a week ago. Now the questions says:
Use web browser to automatically authenticate rclone with remote?
* Say Y if the machine running rclone has a web browser you can use
* Say N if running rclone on a (remote) machine without web browser access
If not sure try Y. If Y failed, try N.
Here is an up-to-date guide to setup authentication on a headless system:
