Opportunities BitTorrent Sync GUI:
*add and remove a local/remote folder, generation folders (including QR code for mobile devices)
*displays a list of connected devices and their status
*displays the speed of downloading data
*the ability to change the device name
*option to limit the speed of reception/data peresadki
*option to set the listening port
*advanced options: scan interval folders, limit local peer, encryption LAN data and much more
In my experience I have not encountered any bugs, but there are some things that can not be implemented BTSync GUI for lack API: you can only see the active speed transmission, but not something that's passed, and still no history file transfers.
Install BitTorrent Sync with unofficial GUI in Linux Mint:
1. Add unofficial repository BitTorrent Sync
To add an informal BitTorrent Sync PPA in Ubuntu and its derivatives (Linux Mint, elementary OS, pinguy OS and so on), as well as in Debian, use the following commands:
sudo apt-get install curl sh-c "$(curl-fsSL http://debian.yeasoft.net/add-btsync-repository.sh)"
Then follow the instructions.
2. Then install BitTorrent Sync with its interface:
With Ubuntu AppIndicator (the difference is that this package installs the dependencies for AppIndicator):
sudo apt-get install btsync-gui
sudo apt-get install btsync-gui-gtk
