Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Csync is a lightweight tool used for performing synchronizations, between folders on the same computer, or on different ones. It uses the the smb and sftp protocols and it does not require root privileges.
The latest version available is Csync 0.44, which has been released a while ago.
In this article I will show you how to install Csync 0.44 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Csync 0.44 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the csync package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:markhannon/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install csync
