Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Syncthing is an open-source software that allows the users to easily synchronize files and directories between different computers in a secured and encrypted manner. The application has only a Web UI, so we need the browser to do our Syncthing tasks.
The latest version available is Syncthing 0.10.1, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:
- Folders queried by the REST interface might not exist in the model
- Introducer should default to false
- Reinstate ignore permissions
- Restarting monitor process is still considered a restart
- Better version change detection
In this article I will show you how to install Syncthing 0.10.1 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Syncthing 0.10.1 on Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems, all you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the syncthing package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ytvwld/syncthing
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install syncthing
Optional, to remove syncthing, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove syncthing
