Asus Webstorage Application -SOLVED
« on: January 27, 2015, 06:21:17 pm »
I downloaded and installed the .deb file of this application but it does not show up in any menu folder.  Please advise how I can find it or add it to a menu.  This application is for cloud storage like dropbox.  I can access it via a web browser but the application is much easier.  Thanks for any help.  Jeff

Hi jlschwartz,

if I am not mistaken, after the installation there should be two files for starting and stopping the app: start.sh and stop.sh are their names. The start.sh file can be run from a terminal session with a command like this:
Code: [Select]
start.sh <UserID> <UserPassWord> <MountPoint>
where you insert your appropriate UserID, UserPassWord and desired MountPoint. An actual example could look like this:
Code: [Select]
sudo ./start.sh jlschwartz33 mySuperPassWord /tmp/ASUSCLOUD
These two files need to be made executable (NO, I do not mean that you should shoot them in the head with a 9mm hollow point  8) -- if you are not sure how to make them executable then ask back here again). If you do not know how to do any of this then someone here can help you. If my tip has solved the problem, then please go to your original posting and mark it as SOLVED.

Regards,

OK, you *can* get it to work, but you're going to have to install mono-complete (which has a LOT of dependencies), and then modify its 2 aws-autostart.desktop files (to use the mono 4.0 runtime profile as the mono 2.0 profile will not work with libraries compiled for mono 4.0)

Instructions:-

Install mono-complete:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mono-completenow run:
Code: [Select]
nohup mono --runtime=v4.0 /usr/lib/ASUSWebStorage/ASUSWebStorage.exeif it starts and has an icon in the system tray, open another terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/aws-autostart.desktopand make it read:
Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=ASUS WebStorage Sync
Comment= ASUS WebStorage Sync
Exec=mono --runtime=v4.0 /usr/lib/ASUSWebStorage/ASUSWebStorage.exe
Icon=/usr/local/share/ASUSWebStorage/ASUSWebStorage.png
Categories=Application;Network;
SAVE the file and exit gedit

Now run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/xdg/autostart/aws-autostart.desktopand make it read:
Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=ASUS WebStorage Sync
Comment= ASUS WebStorage Sync
Exec=bash -c "sleep 20 ; mono --runtime=v4.0 /usr/lib/ASUSWebStorage/ASUSWebStorage.exe"
Icon=/usr/local/share/ASUSWebStorage/ASUSWebStorage.png
Categories=Application;Network;
SAVE the file and exit gedit.

Now log off/on (or reboot) to see if it starts 20 seconds after your desktop comes up.

There should also now be a menu item at:-
menu > Internet > ASUS WebStorage Sync

PCNetSpec,  Thanks for your help and detailed info.  However, when I see that something like 162 files are being added to my system and the complexity with this I have elected to just stick with the accessing Asuswebstorage via my web  browser and will mark the topic solved.  Jeff
