  1. Hi, I am using the Official Docker container and have multiple mounted_folders setup, for the sake of debugging i will limit that to one. The container is launched via docker-compose, the volume is mounted at launch /start and i can access it with the UI and write data in there (read sync a folder), but all files have root:root ownership. Any idea how to get the ownership of the file within this folder to be the same as the parent mounted folder ? --- According to Docker discussions, the volume will have ownership of the user in the container (which seems to be root here), could this be rlsync instead ? There is a way according to the doc to have this setup with the USER directive in the dockerfile : Docker-compose.yml version: "2" services: sync: image: resilio/sync:latest ports: - "8888:8888" - "55555" volumes: - "./syncdata:/mnt/sync" - "./config:/mnt/sync/config" - "/mnt/myfolder2:/mnt/mounted_folders/myfolder2" restart: always
  2. I'm pulling my hair out here. I updated to 2.3.3 to use the new encrypted folders. The set up is quite a bit different, since it doesn't appear to have the dpkg option where you can select the user it runs under. I can get it to launch as user btsync, but cannot for the life of me get the btsync user to access the second hdd on my computer. I have added btsync to my user group that has access, added read/write privileges, everything. It won't even drill past /media/USER/ when trying to add a folder from the web gui, and manually entering a directory says it doesn't have write privileges. I have tried editing the init.d/btsync file to run as my primary user, but it wont start. I have also editied the btsync.service file in /lib/systemd/system to show my primary user, but it still runs under btsync user. I have already spent way to long on this. What am I missing? What do I need to change in order to make it run as a different user from btsync? Edit - I followed these instructions after completely wiping all the previous BTSync files from my computer -
  3. Hi, I just solved an issue I had - just wnated to document it in case it's of some use? I had trouble to automatically start Sync under my user on my Fedora 23 laptop at boot. Although I had enabled btsync as systemd service under my user, it did not start up even after I entered my graphical session. In addition I enabled lingering for my user, i.e., to start a user manager for my user at boot and after logout - so that services under my user will survive me logging out... > sudo loginctl enable-linger $USER > systemctl --user enable btsync > systemctl --user start btsync Still, btsync did not start at boot. Remedy was to change the target for the btsync target from multi-user to default in the [Install] section in /usr/lib/systemd/user/btsync.service > /usr/lib/systemd/user/btsync.service # #original target # working target After disabling and enabling again btsync with systemctl for my user for resetting the link to match the target, i.e., $HOME/.config/systemd/user/ btysnc starts finally at boot under my user. I suspect, that maybe the network may be was an obstacle for multi-user as target, since not necessarily I have a network at start (is multi-user coupled with network-online??) Maybe somebody has an idea, what possible drawback could be with default as target? From what I see, it can change at some point (current graphical). Maybe graphical is not the optimal target. Anyway, I had thought that graphical downstream of multi-user, so I wonder why it is working Cheers, Thomas
  4. *** BREAKING NEWS *** The new full featured BitTorrent Sync GUI for Linux has been released! If you want to switch or are a new user, you should look at this posting. In future btsync-user may be replaced by the new btsync-gui. BTSYNC PACKAGES FOR DEBIAN, UBUNTU AND OTHER DERIVED DISTRIBUTIONS If you are using Ubuntu, Debian, Raspian or other derived distributions based on Debian and you are searching for an easy way to deploy BitTorrent Sync on your systems, this topic is definitively for you. Here you will find information about a family of easy to install deb-packages that offers both a solution for the need of typical server/cloud operators as for interactive users. The desktop user packages are explicitly intended for desktop usage and provide a user experience similar to BitTorrent Sync on Windows or Mac OSX by still giving the user the possibility to customise his installation if he has special needs. The server packages offer full debconf-support for the automated creation and maintenance of an optional default configuration as well as the possibility to manually configure single or multiple BitTorrent Sync instances with highly customised configurations. This topic covers only the desktop user packages. If you are searching for the server packages, please look here. THESE PACKAGES ARE UNOFFICIAL AND NOT THE WORK OF BITTORRENTĀ® INC. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE BITTORRENTĀ® INC. SUPPORT WITH QUESTIONS OR PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE USE OF THE PACKAGES. YOU WILL FIND COMPETENT HELP AND SUPPORT IN THIS THREAD INSTALLATION ON DEBIAN, UBUNTU, LINUX MINT, RASPBIAN OR OTHER DEBIAN DERIVATES The most easy and fast way to install the repository is to paste that at a terminal prompt: sh -c "$(curl -fsSL"The script explains what it will do and then pauses before it does it asking for your permission. If you encounter any problems or prefer to do it manually, please look here.Now update the package index and install btsync by pasting that at a terminal prompt: `which sudo` apt-get update`which sudo` apt-get install btsync-userAfter the successful installation, you have to initially start BitTorrent Sync. You have different possibilities to do this:Log out and login again. Since BitTorrent Sync is started on logon, it will start automatically.Select BitTorrent Sync from the menu or Unity-LauncherStart it from the terminal prompt by issuing the command:btsync startUSAGE NOTES This package of BitTorrent Sync is explicitly intended for generic desktop usage and provide a user experience similar to BitTorrent Sync on Windows or Mac OSX: When the user logs in, an instance of BitTorrent Sync is automatically launched under the user's credentials and a tray applet is launched to show the status and manage the running instance. By default the user instance has an automatical created configuration file in ~/.config/btsync/btsync-auto.conf and keeps its internal data in the directory ~/.btsync A user specific desktop shortcut to the web UI is installed into the system. Since every user has it's web UI on a different port number, only the desktop shortcut or the indicator applet should be used to invoke the web UI. In order to give more freedom to the advanced user, there is also a possibility to launch BitTorrent Sync with a custom configuration file instead of the automatically created file: the startup routine of BitTorrent Sync checks, if there is a file named btsync-user.conf in the configuration directory ~/.config/btsync of the user. If this file is found, then it is used as configuration file. If not, BitTorrent Sync uses the automatically created default configuration file ~/.config/btsync/btsync-auto.conf that will be recreated on every restart. The most easy way to create a custom configuration file, is to create a copy of the automatically created configuration file and then to edit it according to your needs: cp ~/.config/btsync/btsync-auto.conf ~/.config/btsync/btsync-user.confnano -w ~/.config/btsync/btsync-user.confWhen you are ready with your modifications, you can restart BitTorrent Sync by executing: btsync restarton the command line.In addition to the desktop shortcuts and menu functions in the indicator applet, BitTorrent Sync can also be controlled from the command line using the tool btsync. The tool provides usage instructions by issuing the command: btsync -hMore comprehensive help can be found on the corresponding manpage: man btsyncCOMPATIBILITY The legacy desktop packages are available for the same architectures as released by BitTorrent Inc.: i386 Intel/AMD 32 Bitamd64 Intel/AMD 64 Bitarmel ARM EABIarmhf ARM hard floatpowerpc PowerPCSince the packages still have not been tested with KDE, LXDE, Cinnamon and Linux Mint, any related feedback is highly appreciated.BUG REPORTS, CONTRIBUTION AND SOURCES If you want to contribute to the development of the packages or if you are curious how this all works, you may find the current sources of the deployment scripts and packaging on GitHub under the following URL: The full source of the great indicator applet written by Mark Johnson, is also hosted on GitHub and can be found under the following URL: If you have experienced a reproducible issue that is related to the packaging and not to BitTorrent Sync itself you are strongly encouraged to open an issue on the project's GitHub Page. Issues related to the indicator should be reported on the indicator's GitHub page. Issues related to the native functionality of BitTorrent Sync should rather by creating a new topic or partecipating to an already existing topic in the BitTorrent Sync Forum.
  5. Hi, I looked over the Unofficial BitTorrent Sync FAQs list and found a section that somewhat matches my situation: Reading that gives me the impression that the actual number of files would be listed correctly within the app, but just not transferred for one of the reasons listed. In my case, the number of files is vastly different: Around 3000 listed in the app and around 33,000 actual files Permissions are good as I'm running the app as a local administrator account and I have explicitly reset the Administrators group as having full access and "pushed" permissions down. The source system is a Windows XP Professional (SP3) system and I have rebooted the system to make sure that any locked files for the affected profile (not the local administrator whose account is active) are freed. I've also opened the .SyncIgnore file on the source and a destination system and commented out all default entries (and closed/reopened the app). I even went and found a Windows touch tool that allowed me to reset the last modified time recursively on all files and that only resulted in around 100 more files listed than was previously shown in the Size column (X GB in Y files). During all of this I rebooted the system several times and closed/reopened the client (not just the app window, but the application itself) after each change to test the results. Any tips? I haven't collected the logs and mailed them in yet. I was hoping that maybe this was a known issue with a workaround. If not, I'll gladly collect the logs and mail them in. Thanks.
  6. Hi, I'm new to this whole thing. Some friends started a SYNC and shared the secret. On my mac, every time I input the secret it says "Can't open destined folder". The secret I'm inputting isn't wrong, because it is the exact same secret my friends were using.
