BitTorrent Sync Packaging Project
BitTorrent® Inc. delivers for Linux users only a raw binary file without any deployment concept or setup system. It's up to the user to create a reliable startup and shutdown logic and to manage a configuration file. Also a dedicated GUI, as provided for Windows and Mac OSX is missing.
The scope of this project is to provide a Linux GUI with all features as in Windows and Mac OSX and easy to install packages both for servers and desktop systems. The packages are available for Debian or derived distributions like Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Raspbian, etc.
The package containing support for BitTorrent® Sync with a full Linux GUI like the original Mac OSX or Windows application for desktop users is named btsync-gui
The package containing support for BitTorrent® Sync as a single or multiple service with or without WebUI for server/NAS deployment is named btsync
The package containing support for BitTorrent® Sync as a WebUI and tray application for desktop users is still available and named btsync-user
These packages are UNOFFICIAL and not the work of Bittorrent® Inc.
Please do not contact the Bittorrent® support with questions or problems related to the use of the packages. You will find competent help and support in the related discussion threads in the support forum (links in the sidebar).
