  1. If you have installed btsync with the unofficial packages, run: apt-get dist-upgrade
  2. Please try to see what error is thrown when btsync is launched manually. First you have know under which user btsync runs (you have specified it when installing btsync). Then execute the following command: sudo -u <USERNAME> /usr/lib/btsync-core/btsync-core --nodaemon --config /etc/btsync/debconf-default.confwhere <USERNAME> is the user under which btsync will run.
  3. Yes! It was a bug (See Issue #179). I'm just uploading the updated version to the YeaSoft Repo. Launchpad will follow...
  4. According the documentation, the directory_root (and probably also the directory_root_policy statement) must be placed into the webui section.
  5. Ahhh OK - the Launchpad PPA was fully updated only a few hours ago...
  6. Wrong. THis may prevent future updates to work properly. I suppose that the btsync package on your side is still not up to date. Please check that the btsync package has the version 2.0.0-1 with the following command: dpkg -l btsyncWhich repository are you using?
  7. Just update the YeaSoft Repo. Because of an incompatibility between the new BitTorrent Sync executable and the Desktop GUI, I decided to distribute the new BitTorrent Sync executable in a new package "btsync-core". This makes it possible to update the BitTorrent Sync Server Package installations without compromising the BitTorrent Sync Desktop GUI Package installations (they will be updated later on, as soon as I have fixed the GUI). Unfortunately Ubuntu rewards changed package dependencies with yeasoft-gate2 ~ # apt-get upgradeReading package lists... DoneBuilding dependency treeReading state information... DoneThe following packages have been kept back: btsync0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded. This is quite annoying but there are two ways to circumvent it: apt-get install btsync-core btsync or: apt-get dist-upgrade The second way may be dangerous, since it may install also other unwanted stuff... Do it only if you know what you are doing.
  8. Hi Folks, LAST WARNING - LAST WARNING - LAST WARNING - LAST WARNING I will update the btsync package in a few hours from now to version 2. This is your last chance to switch the repository in order to keep your installation on version 1.4. Beware: there is no easy way back. There are some implications due to the new functionality of Version 2.0: since version 2.0 has an automatic synchronisation of shared folders in a 2.0 identity, the directory_root parameter in the configuration file must point to writable directory, if you link your instance to another already configured 2.0 device. If you are operating a default instance maintained by debconf, directory_root is automatically set to the home directory of the user you selected as the user the instance is running. If the default user (btsync) or a user with a UID < 1000 was selected, /mnt is taken as directory_root and the owner of /mnt will be changed to the user. Obviously you can change the directory_root at any time via dpkg-reconfigure btsync. If you have self maintained configuration files, you should make sure a directory_root is specified, if you wish to link the instance to another device. Stay tuned.
  9. Do not do this now. The packages are still on 1.4.111 - if you have installed the latest official release you are on 2.0.83
  10. Just issue the following commands on your machine and you will return to the default repository: $(which sudo) rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tuxpoldo-btsync*.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/btsync.listsh -c "$(curl -fsSL http://debian.yeasoft.net/add-btsync-repository.sh)" Yes. They are preserved and are still supported by 2.0 (you will see them as "1.4" folders). The only thing I do not know is if the 10-folder limit applies also to existing 1.4 folders....
  11. Hi Folks, in a few days (perhaps tomorrow) I will update the packages in the repositories to BitTorrent Sync 2.0. The discussion in the Server Package Topic has shown that there is a group of users that do not want to update to 2.0 and prefer staying on 1.4. In order to make this possible, a new repository has been created. If you want to stay on 1.4, you should read this message very carefully and follow the instructions below immediately, because I will publish the update to 2.0 in the next few days (perhaps tomorrow) and any old version will be updated if you do not change the repository. If you already have any BitTorrent Sync package installed: $(which sudo) rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tuxpoldo-btsync*.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/btsync.listsh -c "$(curl -fsSL http://debian.yeasoft.net/add-btsync14-repository.sh)"If you want to install BitTorrent Sync 1.4 on a new machine: sh -c "$(curl -fsSL http://debian.yeasoft.net/add-btsync14-repository.sh)"
  12. OK Folks, the decision has been taken. BitTorrent Sync 1.4 will be made available in a separate repository. I just published the last update to 1.4 (1.4.111) and duplicated the repository. If you want to stay on 1.4, you should read this message very carefully and follow the instructions below immediately, because I will publish the update to 2.0 in the next few days (perhaps tomorrow) and any old version will be updated if you do not change the repository. If you already have any BitTorrent Sync package installed: $(which sudo) rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tuxpoldo-btsync*.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/btsync.listsh -c "$(curl -fsSL http://debian.yeasoft.net/add-btsync14-repository.sh)"If you want to install BitTorrent Sync 1.4 on a new machine: sh -c "$(curl -fsSL http://debian.yeasoft.net/add-btsync14-repository.sh)"
  13. This was also one of the ideas I took in consideration. But unfortunately it has the same side effect as solution 2: only people that ready the forum will be informed that they have to install btsync2 /btsync2-gui in order to get an update. The internet will be still full of articles that tell the to "apt-get install btsync"
