Hi karapuz

Does this happen only in scheduled execution ??

If yes and you are using v.0.3.5, uncheck the "Console Mode" option at the schedule dialog and let me know of the result...

Could you please paste here the output of the command:
crontab -l
(execute that as the user that runs LB)

I want to make sure that the argument "--silent" is used because of the "console mode" state, and NOT "-c --no-questions"

 time machine functionality

Hi,

great app! What would make it complete (at least for me) would be a roll back feature as provided by backintime or Apple's time machine :)

Indeed, the implementation of snapshots is at the top of my to-do list.

That way, the user could roll back to any snapshot made.

You got to be a bit (or o lot !!) patient though ;)

 Great app, just a few requests

You have developed a really great app, I only have a few suggestions on how you could improve it:

- firstly i would like to see little more integration with my KDE. Using default notification standard would produce nice notifications on gnome and on KDE and it would look really nice. showing a "winXP" bubble notification on my KDE is a bit strange :)
- also, if you could add a option for compression, it would enable saving some space when doing backups
- maybe i am missing something but if you could show total amount of data in MB or GB in progress bar or below it it would be really nice

This is a really great app and thank you for making it:)

Hi mirzaD

first of all, thank you for the compliment :)

1. The tray notification is a result of many suggestions from users, for an ability to minimize the app to the tray as well as provide some notification when its executed via cron.
The bubble message is (believe it or not) standard Qt !!
But, now that you mentioned, it does look kinda weird !!!
I'll see what I can do about that ;)

2. The feature to add compression support is already in my to-do list.
It's just not at the top of that list and will take some time to be implemented :(

3. No, you are not missing anything. At the moment, LB uses rsync to perform transfers. This has the drawback of not being able to extract size information. So the calculations are being made by using the number of files. That means that if 100 files are to be transfered, 99 of them have a size of some KB and 1 is some GB, the progress won't be realistic at all !!

< This is a really great app and thank you for making it:) >

well, thank YOU, for the valuable feedback :)

 only as root?

Few days ago i found, that luckybakcup requires root privileges and asks for password every time. It's version 3.5 from rpm for Fedora 12. Is it supposed to be like this?

Are you using the specific Fedora package from this (or the sourceforge) page ??

Then please have a look at the first paragraph here:
http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/install.html

It's all about normal or super-user execution of LB.

Have you compiled the source tarball yourself or use the generic rpm ??

I have installed rpm from this site. I understand difference between running program as root and as user. But I'm unable to run luckybackup as user. It always ask for a root password.

I just run my FC12 VM and to my (pleasant) surprise I realized that luckybackup is included in the FC repos.

I updated the package (to luckybackup-0.3.5-2) and realized that the "normal user" execution link under Accessories was no longer available.
Also, the "super user" execution link, did run without the use of beesu.

Please check if you have recently updated you system.
If yes, you probably now have the luckybackup package created by the Fedora developers.

You're absolutely right. Lately I updated my system with "yum update" and I didn't check what indeed I'm updating.
So now, just to try, i removed the installed package and installed rpm from your site. And all of a sudden anything is OK. Apparently there's something wrong with package included in repository.
Thanks for help!

 Luckybackup only as root

Hi, sorry, i'm the maintainer in Fedora.
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packages/name/luckybackup

Ok, trying to revert from consolekit to default behavior. I added beesu to Requires in my spec. It got installed fine, though if i execute luckybackup (super user mode) in GNOME, i get a "Failed to execute the child process "su-to-root" (no such file or directory"

Works fine in KDE SC 4.4.0

Do i miss something, maybe not mentioned at: http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/install.html

Hi thomas

thank you for maintaining LB for Fedora :)

The gnome root execution is a pain.
I use 3 different .destop files to produce Debian-ubuntu-Fedora packages.
In the beginning I had all3 included in the tarball, but after some complaints I left only one (the Debian one).

The easy way is to patch the file
menu/luckybackup-gnome-su.desktop
so that the following line:
Exec=su-to-root -X -c /usr/bin/luckybackup
becomes
Exec=/usr/bin/beesu /usr/bin/luckybackup

Anyway, I suppose most people here do not care that much about this conversation so we'd better continue by email

For the record, to my opinion consolekit is a more correct approach for the Fedora philosophy but people would like to have the right to choose.

You got pm ;)

Ok, everything is sorted out. The default behavior of luckybackup to run as regular user and root is now in Fedora repos as well.
I built and queued release -3 to updates-testing today. It's waiting for the next push to the repo which will probably be tomorrow (Monday).

You can update with:
yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update luckybackup

Have fun and happy backup ;)

Thanks to Loukas :)

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
