Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Synkron is an open source, cross-platform application, written in C++ and using the Qt4 libraries, that enables the user to syncronize files and folders, under Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
It has an intuitive interface, allowing the user to easily sync multiple folders, to exclude some folders from the syncing process or to restore some files that were overwritten during the process. The latest version available is Synkron 1.6.2.
In this article I will show you how to install Synkron 1.6.2 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail and Linux Mint 15 Olivia.
