pCloud console client v.2.0.1
-h [ --help ] produce help message
-u [ --username ] arg pCloud account name
-p [ --password ] pCloud account password
-c [ --crypto ] arg Crypto password
-y [ --passascrypto ] arg Use user password as crypto password also.
-d [ --daemonize ] Daemonize the process.
-o [ --commands ] Parent stays alive and processes commands.
-m [ --mountpoint ] arg Mount point where drive to be mounted.
-k [ --commands_only ] Daemon already started pass only commands.
-n [ --newuser ] Switch if this is a new user to be registered.
-s [ --savepassword ] Save password in database.
Also there are several commands that the running service can execute. Commands are passed using
or starting the daemon with -o.
Available commands are : startcrypto , stopcrypto, finalize, q, quit
- startcrypto - starts cripto using given password.
- stopcrypto – stops the crypto.
- finalize – stops the running daemon.
- quit, q - exits the current client. Daemon stays alive.
Example usage scenario:
- Start the service manually
pcloudcc -u firstname.lastname@example.org -p -s
Enter password and use -s switch to save the password.
- Verify that file system starts and mounts normally. If you don't have existing user use -n switch to register new user:
pcloudcc -u email@example.com -p -s -n
Notice that a new user may take a while to mount. Please, be patient.
- Start the daemon service:
pcloudcc -u firstname.lastname@example.org -d
Verify file system is mounted.
At that point you can test passing some commands.
pcloudcc -u email@example.com -k
Or starting the daemon with -o. Test unlocking and locking crypto if you have subscription for it.
- Quit the client. Congratulations, your pcloud console client works properly. You can now add “pcloudcc -u firstname.lastname@example.org -d” command in you startup scripts and thous mount the file system on startup.
