Launching Syncthing web GUI Linux

I set up syncthing a few weeks ago to sync files from my Linux desktop with iCloud on my Mac. This works perfectly well in the background. But since setting this up automatically, I can’t seem to launch the GUI any longer, which is hindering me from syncing additional files. I feel like I’m missing something obvious, but I haven’t been able to find an answer. Any help would be appreciated!

You expect help with this poor description of your problem?

That is the entire problem. I set up automatic syncing following the instructions here: Starting Syncthing Automatically — Syncthing documentation. Which advises disabling the GUI launching when launching syncthing automatically, which I have set up, but I now don’t know how to access the web GUI if I need it. How can I force it to launch into the web GUI? I’m looking for a terminal command that would allow me to launch into the web GUI. I’m not sure how else to describe the problem.

Does load in your browser?

Yup, that works! Problem solved. Thanks for your help! Apologies if this was a silly question.

Not silly at all. There is even a command line option specifically for this, if you do want to start it from a terminal / script instead of bookmarking the URL:

syncthing --browser-only
