Today I have mounted a mega drive on my kubuntu 18.04 pc with rclone.
All right (but I believe you should say that there ought be “&” after the folder to mount).
I planned to use symlinks on mega drive trough posixovl, but so far I cannot (permissions error message when I try to create a symlink).
This my code:
rclone mount mega:schede /media/duns/webdav-schede & # --umask int
It’s possibile create a symlink in that way?
Symlinks generally don’t work when you cross file systems. What are you trying to do?
Thank you. Posixovl provide a workaround, at least with local devices. So I created successfully symlinks on my e-reader (vfat): these are small hidden files but in a certain disk partition (mounted via posixovl) they are really seen as symlinks.
I wonder if you can not use posixovl even remotely: with webdav I have already seen that it is impossible, now I’m trying with rclone and I would like to understand if rclone grants permission to posixovl.
In particular I don’t undestand how use (if useful) flag --umask (I get an error message; is correcty the code above?)
You can’t create symlinks on a fuse mount with rclone though so that’s why I’m not sure what you are trying to accomplish.
Umask works the same as in Linux.
on my mount command to give read/group read/write/execute and read/execute for other.
So what are you trying to do?
ln -s somefile someotherfile? Symbolic links or hardlinks?
Symbolic links, as in local with posixovl. I see an interesting discussion: many people want symbolic links on clouds.
I get this error message:
~$ rclone mount mega:schede /media/duns/webdav-schede & --umask 002
 27924 --umask: command not found
The & puts the command in the background so you’d have to put all your arguments before the “&” sign if you want them to work.
rclone mount mega:schede /media/duns/webdav-schede & --umask 002
rclone mount mega:schede /media/duns/webdav-schede --umask 002 &
ops… thank you. Now it’s ok.
But I have already seen that in remote the permissions should be good…
$ umask -S u=rwx,g=rwx,o=rx
So the problem is rclone and symlinks…
Yes, you’d have to wait for the issue to get fixed.
But I downloaded the zip file and I spent some time to modify local.go as here is shown: can you kindly tell me how can now compile rclone from (this modified) source?
You’d have to pull from that repo:
https://rclone.org/install/#install-from-source is how to install from source.
