Setting up rclone

rclone is an opensource tool for syncing to various forms of cloud storage.

The 32bit ARM binary works on the reMarkable, and with just a little bit of effort it is relatively easy to sync the device with your Google drive from the ssh shell.

  • Download the binaries
  • Unpack the binaries
    (xenial)kimbotha@localhost:~/Downloads/src$ unzip ../rclone-current-linux-arm.zip 
    Archive:  ../rclone-current-linux-arm.zip
       creating: rclone-v1.38-linux-arm/
      inflating: rclone-v1.38-linux-arm/README.html  
      inflating: rclone-v1.38-linux-arm/rclone  
      inflating: rclone-v1.38-linux-arm/rclone.1  
      inflating: rclone-v1.38-linux-arm/README.txt  
  • Copy the rclone binary to the reMarkable
    (xenial)kimbotha@localhost:~/Downloads/src$ cd rclone-v1.38-linux-arm/
    (xenial)kimbotha@localhost:~/Downloads/src/rclone-v1.38-linux-arm$ scp rclone root@10.11.99.1:/usr/local/bin/
    rclone                                                                          100%   13MB   4.4MB/s   00:03    
  • SSH to the reMarkable with a port forward of 53682
    (xenial)kimbotha@localhost:~/Downloads/src/rclone-v1.38-linux-arm$ ssh -L 53682:localhost:53682 root@10.11.99.1
