Hi there!


My btsync service will no longer start on my Arch laptop.


systemctl status shows:

btsync[4925]: Can't open pid file /usr/bin/.sync// Permission denied


There is a file at  /usr/bin/.sync/, so I guess the double slash is just wrong. How do I point btsync to the correct location? 


Thanks for any help. :)

Right, I had tried to point to the pid file in the configuration file before, but apparently that wasn't a config file that btsync was actually reading :x


For any future readers with the same issue:

My correct configuration file was:


I was able to point to the pid file by editing line 10 to:

"pid_file" : "/usr/bin/.sync/",


It's all working now, thanks for the help :)
