Connecting to Swift with KDrive

SAME TOPIC (but better formatted, I hope)


I discovered this very practical tool for managing local and Cloud files. I manage to configure several Cloud backends, such as: AWS S3, Google Drive, OneDrive, ..., but I stumble on Kdrive (Infomaniak) with Swift.

My actions are as follows:

$ rclone --version
rclone v1.64.0
- os/version: raspbian 9.13
- os/kernel: 4.19.66-v7+ (armv7l)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: arm (ARMv7 compatible)
- go/version: go1.21.1
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

$ rclone config show kdrive
type = swift
env_auth = false
user = @mail
key = ******************
auth =
auth_version = 2

$ rclone lsd kdrive: -vv
2023/09/27 09:49:56 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.64.0" starting with parameters ["rclone" "lsd" "kdrive:" "-vv"]
2023/09/27 09:49:56 DEBUG : Creating backend with remote "kdrive:"
2023/09/27 09:49:56 DEBUG : Using RCLONE_CONFIG_PASS password.
2023/09/27 09:49:56 DEBUG : Using config file from "/home/patrick/.config/rclone/rclone.conf"
2023/09/27 09:49:56 Failed to create file system for "kdrive:": invalid character '<' looking for beginning of value


I think my error is in the settings, but I can't find it.


This page shows you how to download your swift config

This has all the info you need in.

You can set the environment variables from the file then use

type = swift
env_auth = true

Or you can copy the values from the enviroment file into the rclone config - see here

Thanks (Merci) :cowboy_hat_face:
