 Perfect program but ...

 
 by miguipda on: Feb 10 2009
 
Score 50%

Hi Lukas,

1) can you please a little a bit explain what means exactly remote connection ?
Is a remote with ftp available ? Or a shared remote with samba (by example) ?

2) I was always looking for a perfect backup programs and yours seems to be the ONE. But I was also looking for this. Due to the large amount of backuped files it is sometimes difficult to find where is the searched one. It means by saving a file I don't know where it is when I need a restore. For this reason can we hope you realise an inventory entry to help us to find where is a file. By example if I create some disk-X folders that I will burn later. It could be interesting to know on which disk (DVD or CD) I burned the file I am looking to.
I know this is maybe difficult but I presume it can be done.

Thanks for you work and I hope your program will allows this inventory tools (database (like sqlite) with a search engine on filename and/or content).

Miguipda ;-)

Hi Miguipda,

1) I suggest you first have a look at the rsync man page. I thing it will help you understand all the principles and ways that it uses for remote connections.
As I already mentioned at my previous post, I think ftp is not supported by rsync.
As for samba, what I have done is mount a directory of a remote machine at my /media/SomeDirectory/ folder using fstab and then declare that (the /media/SomeDirectory/) at the source or destination fields. I do not use the remote groupbox at all and it works flawlessly when I backup the files of a Win-PC within my LAN (it is not mine :-p).

2) That is a very good suggestion (I'm thinking about A LOT OF CODE now, but its worth it).

The plan is to redesign the gui now for the next version and then mess up with the remote capabilities for the next next version.
I am trying to excuse myself for not dealing with that right away :-p
Please bear with me until I do

Loukas
:)

Hi,
on the 6.0.9 slax icon dance but luckybackup doesn't start (no display) even with super user mode (under client account and root account).

For the idea of a catalog of folder (CD/DVD) content, may be this can be used : http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Database/Database-APIs/Katalog-2156.shtml

hello again
:-)

could you try and run the app from console and see if there are any error messages ??
just type:
luckybackup

First thought is that the menu links, created by a package, need "kdesu" or "gksu" to execute the app correctly.
If these are not installed, then the app won't appear at all.
If that is the case, you could:
1. Install kdesu (for kde) or gksu (for gnome)
2. Edit the menu link manually and take out the gksu - kdesu part (just leave "/usr/bin/luckybackup")
3. Edit the menu link manualy and replace kdesu-gksu with your distros way of executing an application with root privileges

Again, this is just an assumption.
I'm waiting for the console execution error, if any
:)

 Install problem on Fedora 10

Hi,
I'm not able to install luckyBackup on fedora 10 using the x86_64 rpm.

* yum stops with the following error :

* I also tried to install luckyBackup directly with rpm -i but it failed with :
erreur: Dépendances requises:

rpm-devel is installed on my system, but it seems the fedora version of rpm (based on rpm-4.6.0) doesn't support lzma...

Is it possible to rebuild the rpms with another compression format ?

I built the 64bit rpm package with suse 11 and looks like there is an incompaibility problem with older versions of rpm

Whenever I find some time I will install a 64bit FC10 and build the package there for you(and for anybody else that might experience the same problem).
I won't make any promise that this will happen really soon though :(

I could try to build a rpm for fedora if I got the spec file or a src.rpm.
I tried to extract the spec from the rpm, but I was not able to open it (cpio error).

hi,
another rpm guru (codename "slackware") is already dealing with the "non-compatible rpm" problem in gerneral.

* I really appriciate his overall help *
*** thank you Yiorgos :) ***

If you want to, pm me your email address so that to send you the spec file and source tarball and have a go with the packing.
...or else, just wait for the results that "slackware" will produce

all rpm incompatibility problems should be ok now with release 0.2.1-2.

There is also a special package released for Fedora

Did you checked highest rated apps recently? Luckybackup is no1 - a well deserved place to be, imho.

This one hits a spot - I was looking for an app to backup my /home-folder for a long time now (prefer external solutions for /-partitions → Clonezilla). So first of all: thank you.

I must report some troubles, though...

1. Excluding folders does not work for me, although the rsync-command mentions them (after hitting the "Validate"-button):

rsync -h --progress --stats -r -tgo -l -p -D --update --delete-after --delete-excluded --exclude=/home/kalle/backup --exclude=/home/kalle/musik --exclude=/home/kalle/daten --exclude=/home/kalle/.azureus

Note that the destination-folder (/backup) should be excluded as well - there should be a warning that it still will be included, but no message appears; all folders are backed up into ~/backup (~/.azureus, ~/musik and ~/daten too).

2. The "Browse"-button in the "exclude" / "include"-module only allows to choose files, no folders. So there might be a misunderstanding on my side - is it possible to ex- or include folders at all? If not, why is that so? That would make luckyBackup totally useless for me.

3. The manual can't be found. For installation I used the .rpm for SuSE (plus 'luckybackup-doc') from the KDE4:Community-repo. When calling the manual, it says "Either luckyBackup is not installed correctly or you have executed the binary from a different directory than the one it was Intended to... :-(", though it is located in /usr/share/doc/packages/luckybackup/manual/index.html (fine manual, by the way).

Feel free to send me a message in case cooperative troubleshooting is needed. I really want this app - no wonder it's rated that good...

Hi 747419
:)

First have a look at the pattern rules of the online manual (since it is not installed correctrly at your system):
http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/manual.html#OperationAdvancedPatternRules

* A starting "/" means that the exclusion is anchored to your source directory !!
* If you want to exclude/include a directory you should also use a trailing "/" or a "/***"

So if you want to exclude /home/kalle/musik just add one of the following:
1. musik/ (meaning any directory named musik)
2. /musik/ (meaning /home/kalle/musik/ if your source is /home/kalle/)
3. /music/***
4. /music/** (to transfer musik but not its contents)
...and so many other combinations

As for the manual, it should be installed to
/usr/share/doc/luckybackup/manual/index.html
and NOT
/usr/share/doc/packages/luckybackup/manual/index.html

If you install the generic rpm (from the downloads of this page), it should work fine.
Nevertheless, I will contact the suse package maintainer (I owe a big thank you to Stephan for his help) and sort this out

I hope you finaly find this app useful
Loukas
:-)

Whoooohooo, it works! Thank you so much! It's perfect! It's fast (tested a second backup already), it's pretty, it's easy, I bet it's even reliable!

I guess I simply got confused by that "Browse" button, like "Hokay, so this is where I set the excluded paths... oops, clicking a folder doesn't work, awrite, so I type it manually..." etc., also I only had my first coffee when giving lB a first try. *cough* I have worked with rsync before, but I simply forgot about those path-options-thingy.

I love rsync a lot, but you made it even more useful by creating the possibility to use profiles (my favourite feature), this makes things a *lot* easier. I'm looking forward to test the CLI-Version. Thank you again!

OT: Thanks as well to the KDE4-SuSE-packagers, they do a *great* job in providing the best and most useful KDE4 of any distribution so far.

using version 0.2.2

Destination folder: /media/My Passport/Data/BackUP/kde settings/

[CRITICAL] -> KDE settings backup
Source directory : /home/seajey/.kde/
Destination directory : /media/My Passport/Data/BackUP/kde settings/ is empty or does not exist.


Destination folder - /media/data/temp_storage/Archiev/

[Ok] -> KDE settings backup

Yes it does.
I use spaces all the time !!

Have you checked if the directory in doubt is indeed empty or does not exist at all??

This CRITICAL message is dislpayed to draw your attention, because you might have mistyped the path or even forgotten to mount a drive/partition.
If you go on, the destination directory will be created if it does not exist and filled with new backup data (which might be what you want after all)

Of cause it exists - I've created it specially for backup purposes on my external harddrive.
And it is empty because of it.
Interesting, if I create dummy epmty.txt what special would be changed for luckybackup?

This CRITICAL message is a little bit nervous :)

SeaJay, You are not the only one.
I also get this CRITICAL error about destination directory is empty or does not exist.
After confirming it did exist, I ignored it and it does seem to backup fine anyway, but I also get the error on subsequent backups too, which is weird.
Cheers

I see that people are not happy with this message.
Well, a "CRITICAL" message is too much I supposse

This will be fixed at version 0.3
:-)

The purpose of this is to just draw your attention.
If a destination directory is the root of a mounted drive (eg /media/backups), and you get that message it means that it is not mounted So if you execute an rsync command it will result in a backup operation to an "unwanted" path.

but I also get the error on subsequent backups too, which is weird.

This is wierd indeed !!
Could you mail me a screenshot of the operation properties window, also mentioning your distro, so that I can simulate the prob at my system ??

luckybackup does not take into consideration hidden files & folders when checking directories.
This is already added as a "known issue".

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
