Where is the x64 binary version for Linux?

Asked by jo931 on 2012-09-07

I downloaded the text file for installation instructions and it says go to http://launchpad.net/freefilesync for Linux versions, but there it says "FreeFileSync does not have any download files registered with Launchpad. "

Where can I get a binary version for x64 Linux? I use Centos and Ubuntu.

Just follow the steps shown directly at the top of the page:

     sudo add-apt-repository ppa:freefilesync/ffs
     sudo apt-get update
     sudo apt-get install freefilesync

Thanks for your quick response. I have not tried it on Ubuntu yet but I'm sure it is fine.

Centos uses yum instead of apt so the above would not work directly. Can you help in this respect?

Since Centos is not Debian-based there is probably no way to use the .deb package created for Ubuntu hosted here at all.
Therefore you'll need to compile manually. This is not really a big deal, except for the "usual difficulties". ;)

PS: Compile.txt, the file describing the manual compilation process coming with the source files, already contains walkthroughs for Debian, Suse and Arch Linux. Maybe you could extrapolate from that what is needed for Red Hat Linux?

Thanks ZenJu, that solved my question.
