Running Megasync on armhf using Docker

What is this?

Using the image presented here, you can synchronize files with Mega using a Docker container on an ARM device.

Getting Started

Obtian the scripts from Github as follows:

git clone

The image armhf/masysmalocal/megasync may then be built on an amd64 host sytsem using make build.

You can run it as follows:

docker run --restart=unless-stopped -d -p \
            -v ...:/fs/backup \
            -v ...:/home/linux-fan/.local/share/data \

Volumes are as follows:

Map the directory to be synced to this node.
Map a directory to contain the Megasync configuration to this one.

For successful read/write access from inside and outside the container, the files from the shared volumes should belong to user and group with ID 1024. If you want to use a different ID, change the Dockerfile accordingly and rebuild the image.

In order to graphically interact with the client, connect via VNC like this:

vncviewer localhost:0

About the Upgrader

A binary version of mdvl-trival-automatic-update is supplied as part of this repository. It is installed inside the container as to keep a 24/7-running container up to date automatically. Check trivial_automatic_update(32) for further details including a link to the package’s source code repository.
