Storj with Rclone and Linux

Can someone PLEASE help me with a step by step guide on how to install Rclone with storj on Linux mint.
I really need a step by step guide on this. I am LOST, Im new with Sotrj and Linux. Please help :slight_smile:
Thank you all in advance

I would like to have my storj bucket mounted as a drive on my desktop.

For storj setup:

for rclone mount - this example is for google drive but it is exactly the same for storj:

Spend some time reading rclone docs:

  1. Install
  2. Amazon S3
  3. rclone mount

Any issues - provide specific problem you are having and somebody will try to help.

This does not seem like it would be mounted on linux mint desktop as a drive or will it? I dont want it to mirror everything on a drive or folder just make it , its own drive that i can save to or drag and drop files to etc.

Yes - I have updated all steps including mount.

In general:

configure storj bucket -> install rclone -> configure storj rclone remote -> run mount

Ok I will try to follow the directions. Thank you

Getting this error:

Have you followed all below steps:

configure storj bucket -> install rclone -> configure storj rclone remote -> run mount

As it looks you try it backwards... and run mount as your first step

I have a storj bucket already
and already install Rclone

"configure storj rclone remote" probably missing

All details in the first link I sent.

Getting this error now:

This is whats in the config file / Less the the access grant for obvious reasons :


Is there something wrong with this file?

as per rclone docs, Remote names are case sensitive

Ok now i get this error :

please, copy/paste the text, not tiny, hard to read screen snippets.
very hard to read!
need to copy/paste the text only, ok?

now, run this command and copy/paste the full text output of
rclone ls Storj: -vv

Sorry for that, Here is the text it kicks out with the error :

diamonddog@diamonddog-desktop:~$ rclone ls Storj: -vv
2023/10/16 20:44:22 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.64.0" starting with parameters ["rclone" "ls" "Storj:" "-vv"]

2023/10/16 20:44:22 Failed to create file system for "Storj:": storj: access: uplink: invalid access grant format

now, the text output of rclone version

diamonddog@diamonddog-desktop:~$ rclone version
rclone v1.64.0

  • os/version: linuxmint 20.2 (64 bit)
  • os/kernel: 5.4.0-164-generic (x86_64)
  • os/type: linux
  • os/arch: amd64
  • go/version: go1.21.1
  • go/linking: static
  • go/tags: none

ok, i think i see the problem.

how did you create the remote, using rclone config or what???

yes I ran rclone config

this is very confusing, hard to read, and not complete.
really, can you just post the text itself.
if you are worried about revealing something, just change a single letter of the access_grant

hmmm, i am not sure about that?
your config does not look correct and does not work.
whereas my storj remote works just fine
