Problem mounting onedrive on Linux Debian

I am trying to mount onedrive locally in my machine running with Linux MX (Debian Stretch) and using rclone 1.48.

I followed this tutorial:

When I get to type this command:

rclone --vfs -cache-mode full mount onedrive: /media/VM520/Onedrive/

I get this error:

Error: unknown command "writes" for "rclone"

Also replacing writes to full (according to tutorial) does not change the result.

Any advice?


It doesn't seem you are sharing the right command as the error indicates you used writes but your command has full.

Can you share the full command you are using and the error ?

If you want to use full caching which does a complete download and upload every time, it would be:

rclone mount onedrive: /media/VM520/Onedrive/ --vfs-cache-mode full 

or writes

rclone mount onedrive: /media/VM520/Onedrive/ --vfs-cache-mode writes 

What does rclone version show?

[felix@gemini ~]$ rclone version
rclone v1.48.0
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.12.5

Solved with your command.


rclone mount onedrive: /media/VM520/Onedrive/ --vfs-cache-mode writes 

it works.

The command in the tutorial:

rclone --vfs -cache-mode writes mount onedrive: /media/VM520/Onedrive/

was returning the error.

I tested both commands, writes and full and both gave the error with the tutorial's syntax.

Version of my rclone:

$ rclone version
rclone v1.48.0
- os/arch: linux/amd64
- go version: go1.12.6

Now I can see Onedrive mounted in Thunar, so all is ok. Thanks much.
