  1. What a nightmare. I synced a folder from my Windows PC and got the secret, so I can do some work remotely on an Ubuntu laptop. I'm new to Linux, so this is where things get all out of whack. I've gotten it to work before, but I screwed something up starting today: - I forgot you had to run btsync manually through terminal, so I accidentally reinstalled after assuming it wasn't there. - Reinstalled (where I screwed up?) and it is running. - Using 127.0.0.1:8888, GUI password comes up with some saved password. I didn't record it, but I have a good system of passwords. All combinations failed. - In etc/btsync, there's a conf file. I don't think that's the right one, but it did have a user and one of my frequently used passwords in plain text. That did not let me into btsync. I've been Googling for hours. Lots of mentioning of the config files. I still don't understand the Linux file system. I have no clue where the default btsync directory is, where I'm told to put the config, and I still have no idea why debconf-default.conf has one of my passwords, but effectively it does nothing.
