Desktop OS: Linux Mint 19.2
Joplin Desktop v. 1.0.174
Mobile platform: Galaxy S10e, Android 9
Joplin Mobile: 1.0.311
Sync method: Dropbox
I wanted to start fresh with an imported backup of my notes, since Joplin on my new mobile phone wouldn’t decrypt my notes for days with the above setup. I decided to wipe my keys and start over, which isn’t a problem for me. For some reason, old keys are still popping up and there are duplicate notes and a few still-encrypted files, as if it hadn’t really gotten rid of some of the old informatino. How do I clear these old files and keys as if I’m a truly new user with a fresh install and no old keys?
I followed this process:
- Stop the mobile app, cleared its cache and storage, then uninstalled it.
- Removed any residual Joplin files from the phone via search/delete.
- Removed ~/.config/joplin-desktop file.
- Removed Dropbox App folder locally and made sure that it was no longer lingering on any other machines or in the cloud.
- Imported my jex backup file on desktop; everything seemed in order on the desktop
- Enabled encryption and connected with Dropbox from my desktop machine, then waiting for it to say it had finished syncing.
- Reinstalled Joplin on phone and synced.
- Input key password on request.
Most notes decrypted, but there are duplicates and it’s still expecting old keys along with a few encrypted notes. Also, on a separate note, the mobile app won’t display pictures in notes, despite them being available on the desktop. It only displays a kind of download icon that I cannot select.
Thanks for any help in advance.
