I’m not a complete Ubuntu newbie, but I feel like one now and I hope someone can help.
I realize that there are debian / Ubuntu packages. I try to add the PGP key, by typing this in terminal:
$ curl -s https://syncthing.net/release-key.txt | apt-key add -
And just gives me back: ERROR: This command can only be used by root.
So, I type this in terminal: $ sudo curl -s https://syncthing.net/release-key.txt | apt-key add -
And terminal comes back with the same thing: ERROR: This command can only be used by root.
So, I decided to just download the linux build from github: syncthing-linux-amd64-v0.11.5.tar.gz
I download it, extract it try typing “syncthing” in terminal – nothing.
I navigate to the directory in which I extracted and trying again typing “syncthing” in terminal – still nothing.
I love the idea of Syncthing, would love it get it up and running, but I feel very lost like I’m doing a lot wrong.
Is there anyway to get Syncthing v.11.5 on Ubuntu 14.04?
