I installed syncthing 1.9 on Ubuntu 20.4 LTS in accordance with the instructions on the syncthing website. The install went well, no errors but I have no GUI. In a term window syncthing responds to “synthing -version” with:

syncthing v1.9.0 “Fermium Flea” (go1.15.1 linux-amd64) 2020-08-28 05:48:25 UTC [noupgrade] But I cannot access the GUI with Firefox.

Please help.

I have successfully installed syncthing on 2 other computers with no issues.

What instructions exactly did you use?

The install instructions on are only for the installation, not for making it run.

After that installation you have a service installed, but not enabled. You then need to follow the docs:
