Problem Installing Btsync-User

Hi guys

 

I've been using btsync for a while now and have it installed on 4 PC's (3 Linux PC's and 1 Windows PC's) and it's installed and worked flawlessly 

 

I installed to all the Linux PC's by adding this ppa  using the following command

add-apt-repository ppa:tuxpoldo/btsync

 

 then updating and installing using the command

 

sudo apt-get install btsync-user

 

 each time it's worked perfectly

 

However I'm trying to install it to my daughters netbook running the same Linux OS as all the other Linux PC's buy when I try to install I get an error message in the terminal " btsync-user can't be found"

 

I can install by typing "sudo apt-get install btsync but that doesn't give me the icon on the taskbar like on all my other PC's.

 

Can anyone tell me if anything has changed or if there is somethingI'm doing wrong

 

 

Many thanks

 

 

Graeme

It has changed that Lanchpad ceased support for Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring) and so it was not possible any more to update the package on Launchpad. For this reason, the package btsync-user is not available any more from Launchpad. The other packages are still there, since they got no updates in the last months.

 

You have two different possibilities to solve the problem:

  1. Update the computer of your daughter to the supported Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy) version and update the PPAs accordingly
  2. Remove the PPA and add instead the YeaSoft repository as described in the initial posting. There you will still get updates also for older Ubuntu versions.
