    Thanks for sharing these instructions. I’m trying to install FreeFileSync on Ubuntu 13.10 (64 bit). I’m running into the following error message during the third (installation) step:

    Unable to locate package freefilesync

    Am I in the wrong folder? But if so, where is the package stored? Or is this a problem with 13.10?

    Followed the instructions and had no problem in Ubuntu 13.10.
