What is the problem you are having with rclone?

mentioned in the title

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

its 1.36 even though i downloaded the latest 1.56

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

google drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone config

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Nothing because remote wasn't created.

A log from the command with the -vv flag

You have to run rclone config to generate it the first time and make your remote.

When i create it it says couldn't create permission denied

You'd want to fix the permissions on the file / home directory.

etexter@seraphite ~ % rclone config file
Configuration file is stored at:
etexter@seraphite ~ % ls -al /Users/etexter/.config/rclone/rclone.conf
-rw-------  1 etexter  staff  1943 Jul  5 16:30 /Users/etexter/.config/rclone/rclone.conf

You can check and validate the permissions are right. Are you using a different user? Did you run it as root or something?

i will message after shower. Water is ready

That's not a rclone issue per se as you have a linux permissions issue on your home drive.

You'd have to figure out / fix that.

okay thank you!

You may have two versions of rclone on your computer with the oldest being first in your search path.

Try this:

cd /folder/with/rclone1.56
./rclone version
rclone version
