  1. Back from my travels. @iswrong: thanks for pointing out that Sync hadn't started, I totally misread what the message said. I tried executing the "sudo systemctl status -l btsync" command and got the same returned message as running "sudo service btsync status" and the "/home/osmc/.btsync/data/.syncsystem" directory is empty. @Moe: running either of your commands returned the below however btsync is present in the "usr/bin" directory. osmc@osmc:~$ sudo /usr/bin/btsync --nodaemonsudo: unable to execute /usr/bin/btsync: No such file or directoryosmc@osmc:~$ sudo /usr/bin/btsync --nodaemon --config /etc/btsync/config.jsonsudo: unable to execute /usr/bin/btsync: No such file or directoryBefore I had started this post I did some Googling and found a post in the OSMC forum regarding the need to link the below files which I had done under root but this hadn't worked at the time. This morning I tried linking these files again and after rebooting all is working now. I don't know why this didn't take the first time but stranger things have happened in my Pi adventures. ln -s /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ /lib/ is now running (if not a little slow but that's for another time to investigate). I think you both for your help and will link Moe's Sync script in the OSMC forum post for others to try. This is going to be a great holiday present for some lucky person! Cheers!
  2. This is also something I have been interested in. While working on some rather large spreadsheets, Sync is always busy. I have gotten into the habit of pausing Sync while I'm working on these but once in a while I forget to unpause it. I'll look through the Feature Request subforum to see if this solution has been requested but it would be cool if there were some time intervals under the "Pause syncing" command like I've seen in other systems that you could select then after that time it would automatically kick back in. Pause for 1 hour Pause for 2 hours Pause for 8 hours ... Pause indefinitely [EDIT] Well that didn't take long, there are a number of Feature Requests like this. But more importantly I found a solution to my spreadsheet issue here that I either didn't read or glossed over. You can set a user-editable "FileDelayConfig" for certain file types. I'll be looking into this!
  3. I'm also a Pro user with my initial license on my Mac Air. 3 days ago I installed Sync on a Raspberry Pi using Moe's automated script and before doing anything else I copied the Pro license link from my laptop to the Pi via the Manual Connection link. It took less than a minute before all the folders, 8 parent and ~20 child folders started syncing in full. After everything finished syncing I added a couple new folders on my Mac and they appeared with files on the Pi in a relatively short amount of time.
  4. @Moe, because of my daughters particular major it requires her laptop to be always ready to go. I've used TeamViewer a lot in my biz and I've experienced some issues then so I can't take the chance to screw up her laptop without it being close by. The Raspberry Pi I'm putting together in the other tread I've posted in is for her and once I get it all up and running I'll send it up to her and probably remove Sync from her laptop. Also based on @iswrong's comment above; "... This allows them to solve any unnoticed bugs that come up. ..." I won't be updating until it's been cleared for auto update. In the past I always wanted to be ahead of everyone else but I'm getting over the need to be first after all these years of rooting and running custom ROMs on my Android phones. I quite content to hang back and let the younger crowd take over and I'm happy with my non-rooted phone (with the exception of all the bloat that VZW puts on it!). Cheers!
  5. @iswrong & @Moe, Thanks for the suggestions. I will check these and report back at the end of the week when I return from my biz travels. I mistakenly shutdown down this particular Pi before leaving so I can't access remotely. I don't know what I was thinking!
  6. Now that I have Sync running on two other Pi2's using this great script I thought I'd give it a go with OSMC on another Pi2. The script runs with no errors after updating line 5 in with the user as "osmc" and then setup autostart at boot with "sudo update-rc.d btsync defaults". After rebooting and checking "sudo service btsync status", all seems swell: osmc@osmc:~$ sudo service btsync status‚óŹ btsync.service - LSB: daemonized version of BiTorrent Sync.

Since OSMC is based on Debian I thought this might be easy enough to install even though I had notice in other forums there were some issues. Cheers!
  7. The output from the script said it couldn't create items (sorry forgot what they were) in the pi user directory which I immediately saw. I figured it had to be something I could change in the script so I opened it and it was right there staring me in the face. I changed the pi user to my user name, reran the script and all is well. Then i went back to read your instructions and there it was again staring me in the face, "Prior to running this script you want to verify that the user variable on line 5 is correct."! LOL.... glad to see that you thought of everything!
  8. I''m running an instance under Mac OS 10.8.5 and Sync 2.2.5. When I open the Sync panel then click "Check Now" for Updates the response is that 2.2.5 is the latest release. [Edit] I had also checked this last night before sending my daughter back to college this morning so she'll have to wait until her next break to upgrade. We've agreed that she won't do any upgrades of certain software while away at school since being 9 hours away makes is more difficult to fix things when they come along.
  9. Thanks Moe! I have Sync running on several Pi's and added another one this morning so decided to try out your script. It worked really well and I had Sync up and running under my Pro license within a few minutes. Like many users I attempted to run the script without fully reading then rereading the install instructions but knew right away where to look for the fix when the script bounced me the error "Could not create installation folder /home/pi/.btsync". I delete this account after setting up the Pi but the fix was quick and easy. Cheers, Billy
  10. Selective Sync needs to be added to the Linux version especially for the Pro license. I too am using a Linux based laptop with several Raspberry Pi's and I don't want to keep large files all over the place, especially videos. I'm a Pro user and really not too keen on having to pay for the API to add this one single but "major" feature. Is there a page where the folks at BTSync keep up to date that will let us know what might be coming in the future? I haven't found one as of yet and it would be nice to know what's in the pipeline.
  11. @Moe, installing yet another file sharing program isn't necessarily the best answer since this is a Feature Request topic. Also OwnCloud has it's own share of issues, I run it myself. Back in 2013 there was a Bittorrent hack called BitBox built on the Sync API that would provide you with a public link to share similar to Dropbox's public share link. I doubt that hack will work for Sync 2.0 but this is something I would like to have on Sync and that I would pay for. Sharing files with other workers to work on then having the ability to push the latest update to someone without Sync would be priceless especially not having to upload to Dropbox or OwnCloud. In essence, being able to generate a public link with a set expiration or a number of file accesses would be a great addition.
