Installing on Ubuntu, unable to save settings from GUI...

Can’t figure out what the trouble is. The DANGER notification won’t go away no matter how many times I try to set the configuration in the GUI, and the IP address and other data doesn’t seem to be written to the file.

What I did:

Created a new user and group in Ubuntu name syncthing with group syncthing. Installed syncthing using apt-get install syncthing as sudo user. Enabled /lib/systemd/system/syncthing@.service by entering:

systemctl enable /lib/systemd/system/syncthing@syncthing.service

Started syncthing.

Pointed browser to The interface popped up with a DANGER notification. I entered the requested information and restarted the service. The information was not retained.

I checked the /home/syncthing user folder for .config and the config.xml file is in there and syncthing:syncthing has read/write permissions to that file.

I feel like I missed a step somewhere, but did I?

It must have been a permissions thing. I figured it out.

I purged syncthing as the root user, deleted the syncthing user from the system, re-added the syncthing user, THEN…added that user to the Sudoer’s group, THEN installed syncthing using the syncthing user, configured the systemctl and it worked.
