Failing to sync linux with android


I’m trying to sync a folder from my desktop (Running xubuntu 16.04) with android using syncthing.

I’ve managed to select a folder and both devices and all that, but then, when it comes to running, I get the following error message:


Creating folder marker: open /storage/external_SD/.stfolder: permission denied

Stopping folder “xiudq-aoede folder marker missing”

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Please let me know if you need me to supply more information. I’ll happily do that to get this working…

In short: external storage is not fully writable.
