What issue do you have?


I am new to Joplin on Android but using it on Linux Desktop and Laptop (Linux Mint) with local file system and synchronization via luckyloud (seafile). Now I have installed Joplin on Android and would like to use the same configuration as on my Linux computers, with local file systems.
Is there a how-to, which folder needs to be synchronized on Android? Or is there a 2nd hand app like foldersync to use?

Thanks and regards from Vienna!

Syncthing is the solution that most people seem to use (including myself). It is one of the very few file sync solutions that actually performs normal two-way sync on Android, the same way as on the desktop.

Please keep in mind that there is a very annoying bug about the filesystem sync (see Sync silently ignores new files with old timestamps · Issue #6517 · laurent22/joplin · GitHub) that can be a deal breaker for some.
