I have been experimenting with the setup of Mate 18.04 and with Syncthing.
I have two Mate 18.04 installs, a clean one with no alterations and only Syncthing added and another (currently in use) which I have spent some time organising and loading a number of applications.
I used Software Boutique to load Syncthing on both drives and then in both drives I went to Control Centre>Personal>Startup Applications and added Synthing to the startup list.
I now have the clean 18.04 install auto-starting on boot but I cannot get the other (in use) system to auto-start.
Also, in the clean install (before it was auto-starting) I could start Syncting simply by typing syncthing in the terminal, however the only way I can get Syncthing to run on this system is to start it in the terminal with sudo syncthing Hopefully there are some ideas/suggestions as to why the two Mate 18.04 systems are behaving in such a different manner.
Any suggestions welcome;
