Resilio doesn't work after upgrade to Ubuntu 18.10

Recommended Posts

I installed Resilio on Ubuntu 18.04 from repository and ran Sync under current user(s). I started using Resilio with two different users at the same computer and synced folders between them an other computers with configurating them with the web-gui. Right at the beginning, I couldn't configure the settings of the users with die web-gui anymore because resilio always asked for a new user configuration. But it worked (synced) and so I didn't  dare. After upgrading to Ubuntu 18.10 and an (automatic) upgrade  of Resilio the computer doesn't sync anymore. Resilio still starts with entry

systemctl --user start resilio-sync

in gnome-session-property.

and seem to be active, when I use

systemctl --user status resilio-sync

it shows

But it doesn't sync and Resilio on the other computers doesn't show this computer anymore.

Any ideas how to fix that? Thanks.

This sync issue has nothing to do with an upgrade. It was just a coincidence.

After I didn't get a response to my first request, I uninstalled resilio sync and reinstalled it. After a few days, the same phenomenon occurred again. The files are no longer synchronized. The client of resilio sync from this computer no longer appears in the clients of resilio sync on other computers. If you log in via the web gui of resilio sync, you won't get to the previous settings. It starts again with the initial setup.

I am somewhat disappointed that I do not receive any reaction to the problem described here.

In the meantime, I have found out that the sync service can be restarted when you stop the sync service with

sudo systemctl stop resilio-sync


 systemctl --user stop resilio-sync

and start it again with

 systemctl --user start resilio-sync

In addition, after switching to another user under Ubuntu, you must first stop and restart the services as described so that the sync process runs properly.

sudo systemctl stop resilio-sync


sudo systemctl disable resilio-sync


edit file

nano /usr/lib/systemd/user/resilio-sync.service

and change “” to “”. Save.

Then enable the service if You want to autostart service as current user

systemctl --user enable resilio-sync
