How To Install Syncthing 0.10.26 on Raspberry Pi: Raspbian, Arch Linux ARM Or Pidora

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 0.10.26, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Silence discovery warnings when v6 not available
  • Make sure we start scanning at an indexed location
  • Add missing translation strings
  • Allow not to limit bandwidth in LAN
  • Remove red if we managed to report to atleast one discovery server
  • Compress only metadata by default
  • Don’t yell about discovery listening and resolving
  • Fall back to %AppData% if %LocalAppData% is blank

In this article I will show you how to install Syncthing 0.10.26 on Raspberry Pi: Raspbian, Arch Linux, Pidora.

Because Raspberry Pi uses ARMv6 architecture, we have to download the proper tar.gz archive, extract it and run the syncthing file:

$ sudo mkdir -p /opt/syncthing
$ cd /opt/syncthing
$ wget
$ tar -xzvf syncthing-linux-arm-v0.10.26.tar.gz
$ cd syncthing-linux-arm-v0.10.26
$ ./syncthing

Optional, to remove syncthing, do:

$ sudo rm -rf /opt/syncthing
