Rclone automount in Raspberry Pi 3

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

I followed a tutorial to automount in rpi3 rclone google drive, but i have an issue with systemd

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

rclone v1.49.3

  • os/arch: linux/arm
  • go version: go1.12.9

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION="9 (stretch)"

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

Team Drive ( Google Drive )

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

I'm done with configuration of rclone, infact i can mount with:
rclone mount gdrive: $HOME/mnt/gdrive

I wish to automount drive, at boot.

I followed this tutorial and i hope that is possible, post a link of this.

I create rclone@.service in /home/pi/.config/systemd/user

rclone@.service is:

Description=rclone: Remote FUSE filesystem for cloud storage config %i
ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir -p %h/mnt/%i
/usr/bin/rclone mount
--vfs-cache-mode writes
--vfs-cache-max-size 100M
%i: %h/mnt/%i

But when i launch this command i get an error:
systemctl --user enable rclone@gdrive

The unit files have no installation config (WantedBy, RequiredBy, Also, Alias
settings in the [Install] section, and DefaultInstance for template units).
This means they are not meant to be enabled using systemctl.
Possible reasons for having this kind of units are:

  1. A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's
    .wants/ or .requires/ directory.
  2. A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has
    a requirement dependency on it.
  3. A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer,
    D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...).
  4. In case of template units, the unit is meant to be enabled with some
    instance name specified.

So i can't do that.

Please can you help me ? And if i complete this tutorial, suggest to me, a better flags in rclone, to get more speed ? Anyway i know, is rpi3, so is limit, my idea is if works well, i'll buy a rpi4 that should be full gbit speed.

I wish to use ps3netsrv for that. So my games in cloud and ps3 that read them from google drive.

You appear to be missing the \ at the end of the continuation lines here

ExecStartPre=/bin/mkdir -p %h/mnt/%i
ExecStart= \
  /usr/bin/rclone mount \
    --fast-list \
    --vfs-cache-mode writes \
    --vfs-cache-max-size 100M \
    %i: %h/mnt/%i
