I am trying to keep my music folder synced between my ubuntu desktop and my android phone. Both my devices are usually connected via LAN. I don't wanna use internet to sync.

How can I do this? Thanks in advance.


My favorite software for such tasks is FreFileSync (http://sourceforge.net/projects/freefilesync/), "a folder comparison and synchronization tool providing highly optimized performance and usability without a needlessly complex user interface."

Ubuntu package and installation instructions can found here: http://launchpad.net/freefilesync

Launch the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run these commands:

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