Amazon Cloud Drive for Linux


Using our commercial software product SyncoveryCL, you can back up to (or sync with) Amazon Cloud Drive on any Linux machine, including servers that do not have a GUI.

You can download the free trial version on our Linux Download page.

Here’s a few sample command lines you will want to use:

Create the job to upload to Amazon Cloud Drive:
SyncoveryCL ADD /LEFT="/home/tobias/Documents/" /RIGHT="ext://OptionalAcctID@ACD/Documents" /RProt=ACD /L2R /EXCL=.* /NAME=ACDTest

Run the job:
SyncoveryCL /RUN=ACDTest

For more details and other command line options, please see the Linux download page.

Installation on 64-Bit Linuxes


If you have a 64-bit Linux, you may have to install additional 32-bit libraries.

On the latest Ubuntu or Debian 64 bit (Wheezy), please do:

aptitude install multiarch-support binutils-multiarch
dpkg --add-architecture i386
aptitude update
aptitude install libX11-6:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 
                    libgtk2.0-0:i386 libsqlite3-0:i386

The last two lines are actually one line.

Ubuntu users may have to add the multiarch sources in /etc/apt/sources.list


On older Ubuntu or Debian 64 bit distributions, do:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

 
In addition, you may need:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk

 
See also Running 32-bit Applications on 64-bit Debian GNU/Linux.

If the program says it cannot find the sqlite3 libraries, you can download them from here (choose the i386 version), and install the downloaded file with these two commands at a root command prompt:

dpkg -X your_downloaded_lib_file_i386.deb /emul/ia32-linux     (Enter)

ldconfig     (Enter)
