… I thought I’d start a separate topic on it. Mostly because I’ve taken inspiration, am giving it a go but have questions!
So… I’ve installed Paperless-ngx using Docker on my Mac. All is working well, I have my papers documents stored on the local drive rather than in the container, which means that I can sync them with Google Drive. But the import of new documents from a folder has gone funky. It only seems to work when you restart the virtual machine.
I’ve waited 24 hours! If I leave the same docs in the folder they’ll get picked up when I stop and start Docker.
From a quick google, it’s looking like the folder monitoring service isn’t working for some reason, and the solution seemed to be to add a line to docker-compose.env (PAPERLESS_CONSUMER_POLLING=5) but that doesn’t seem to work either.
This is the missing part of the puzzle so I can invest in a scanner and go #FullPaperless
(Saying that, I also need to get email working and fix the slightly dodgy correspondent matches that are going on right now…)
