How To Install Syncthing 0.9.15 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 0.9.15, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Don’t crash on walk error
  • Typo in panic message
  • We have an extra field in compressed messages
  • Make the restart on wakeup configurable
  • Clearfix to not hide Add Node on small screens
  • Fix hit zone for remote nodes accordion

In this article I will show you how to install Syncthing 0.9.15 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
$ sudo wget github.com/syncthing/syncthing/releases/download/v0.9.15/syncthing-linux-armv6-v0.9.15.tar.gz
$ tar -xzvf syncthing-linux-armv6-v0.9.15.tar.gz
$ rm syncthing-linux-armv6-v0.9.15.tar.gz
$ cd syncthing-linux-armv6-v0.9.15
$ ./syncthing

Optional, to remove syncthing, do:

$ sudo rm -rf /opt/syncthing
