      will show you all "config.xml" files. Of course you are looking for the one in the syncthing directory.

      You need to start the search at the root. So first do cd / to move to the root. Then find -mount -name config.xml.


      If you found the file you can edit it using nano. Search the internet how nano is used.
      Thanks again for your answer. I tried typing what you posted
      and found this:

      ./home/username/.config/syncthing/config.xml

      The problem is that i can´t seem to cd to either .config, syncthing or config.xml

      If i type just type in:
      ~user/.config/syncthing/config.xml

      I get this

      -bash: /home/user/.config/syncthing/config.xml: access denied

      You try to execute the file. That is not correct. You have to edit the file. For this you need to use a program called "nano". Please search the internet on how to use "nano" and then do the modification subzero recommended.

      Do you know somebody who knows Linux who can help you? Would be helpful.

      I´m very sorry to say, that i do not know anybody who can help me with linux

      I have tried opening the file in nano typing:

      nano home/user/.config/syncthing/config.xml

      Seems like the file opens in nano, but there´s no text?

      alt+Y "colorchange" does not help..

      I really hope you can help me through this issue, as the folks over at Syncthing reffers to this forum, regarding my issue ;)
