Installation in MacOSX (Homebrew) does not work

Hi, I’m new to Syncthing. I want to install on Mac OSX with Homebrew with Syncthing Starting Automatically. I followed the steps; first install home-brew and “brew install synching” and everything working, for now.

The ERROR is when I run “launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.syncthing.plist” I get the following error: "No such file or directory" I need to install something else? As I can fix this error?

Thank you very much, greetings! and sorry for my English


No. You should not need to install anything else. What you’ve done should be enough.

After the installation, you should find a link in your ~/Library/LaunchAgents.
Check with ls -l ~/Library/LaunchAgents/ from the Terminal.
The output should be something like:

:~ $ ls -l ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
lrwxr-xr-x  1 youruserid  staff   54 Jan  4 14:47 homebrew.mxcl.syncthing.plist -> /usr/local/opt/syncthing/homebrew.mxcl.syncthing.plist

Is this available?

If not, try brew uninstall syncthing and again brew install syncthing.
What does brew doctor say?

Thanks for your help, I’ve already got, thank you! : P

To have launchd start syncthing at login: ln -sfv /usr/local/opt/syncthing/*.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents Then to load syncthing now: launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.syncthing.plist
