Installation hell

Comment by mekineer
about Syncany Mar 2016

Installation was way too hard. I had to manually set the environmental paths, so that it could find Java (I didn't install Java on my system, and just pointed it at a portable version of OpenJDK). I wanted to use it with Google Drive, and after a search I came across https://github.com/Lyrrad/syncany-plugin-googledrive. At this point, I just gave up. Maybe it will get easier when it gets out of alpha.
