I've submitted a pull request that allows running the service as any user: "systemctl start btsync@username"

The btsync service is installed to run as user "btsync". The btsync user needs "rwx" permissions for the folder to share and "rx" permissions for all of its direct parent folders. You might "chgrp" all those folders to the "btsync" group in order to be able to use those permissions.

It would be easier to manage if the service ran as root. But that might not be a good solution from a security standpoint. Ideally, it would be started by the user itself. But I don't know if we could use systemd for that.

@teek: what user are you using to run these commands?
You could try creating a debug.txt file with content 'FFFF' in your storage_path (check your config file for the correct path).
This will give you more debug output in the sync.log file which is also located in your storage_path.

Picked up package after Ninja-1 dropped it, new GitHub repo for bugfixes & such:

Dropped package because I don't have time to maintain it and don't want to hold it up.

BitTorrent Sync forked to background. pid = 1612

This work perfectly! What could be wrong with the "init-script?"

locate btsync.service

Could it be that I have problems because before I had this installed:

teek commented on 2013-07-04 18:34

systemctl start btsync.service
Failed to issue method call: Unit btsync.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status btsync.service' for details.

What does it mean?
