 rdiff-backup backend

Hi thanks for luckybackup, a great tool indeed!

i got a question though: why can't i select rdiff-backup as backend? it's installed on my system but it remains grayed out.

Yes, there's nothing wrong with your installation in case you wondered !!

The use of different backends is not yet implemented. Just rsync is available.

I started it some time ago (that is why it exists at the gui, but disabled-greyed out) but gave up on it due to different priorities.

For your info, the schedule currently is:
1. Release v0.4 (probably) within this month. I've changed a lot of the code to be able to accept "snapshots" as a feature.
2. Implement the use of snapshots.
3. Look into the "different backend" issue

...thank you for your nice words :)

luckybackup is a great program which i underestimated at first. i was coming from gnome and searched for a replacement for Grsync. it took some time to realize that i actually found something better!

including the ability to create snapshots sounds awesome! especially if you would have the choice between rsync and rdiff-backup snapshots. -> easy browsable snapshots vs small snapshots.

very much looking forward to the new features.
thanks for caring that much about other people's data.

 Scheduling question

 
 by google01103 on: Apr 13 2010
 
Score 50%

since cron is used for scheduling then if the machine is not on at the designated backup time the backup will not take place when powered on - correct?

In such a case it would be better to run from kalarm (with "cancel if late" unchecked) using LB in console mode?

Hi google,

you are correct.
cron, though powerful and reliable, is a bit poor as far as features are concerned.

You can use kalarm or anacron or whatever suits you best.

It is strongly advised though, due to some CLI issues, to not use the console mode, but the silent mode.
Then you will have an icon at your tray every time LB runs as a notification that something happened.

Please excuse the lack of documentation on this issue. I will release the new manual together with the next version shortly...

thanks,

Suggestion - if console is problematic, wouldn't it be better to remove it until it's ready so that it causes no harm? Not everyone reads the "known issues".

I'm a little confused about "Backup the entire source directory (by name) vrs "Backup the contents of the source directory". Reading the manual helped but the titles need work, maybe add "with parent directory name included". Should "by name" be the default even"?

"The pattern editor does not produce the right pattern for "specific files/folders" when "Backup the entire source directory (by name)" is used as task type." If I just use reg expressions as described in the manual will that work correctly with "by name"?

thanks,

Well, the "known issues" usually come up after a release and they refer to that. Until know all known issues of a specific release are fixed at the next one.
Moreover, it does not cause no harm ;)
It just malfunctions (some tasks don't run) at some systems.

I will not disagree, it is confusing, but I had to come up with a small phrase that would fit there. The smaller, the better. Moreover when it is translated at some languages it becomes bigger !!
Does the popup message (when you leave the mouse cursor on top of the selections) help or is that misleading too ??
(I am not judgmental. I do appreciate user's opinion and feedback more than you can imagine. You (and many others) have helped making this app better ;) )

As far as the default option is concerned, I have changed it a couple of times, but concluded to this one because of user's feedback. Unfortunately, I cannot keep everybody happy.

Yes.
If you need more help on patterns (they can be a pain) let me know...

Indeed.
There seems to be some issue with sourceforge.
Maybe the mirrors just need some time.

I contacted them am waiting for a reply...

No luck downloading lb 4. Some kind of redirection error.
I've tried to dl lb for mandriva 586, but bit seems to be the same problem with other distros, as well as the source.

 Only 'Super User' mode?

Hello Luckyb,

I noticed that before the recent updates there were 2 menu entries for luckyBackup; one was for normal user and the other was for super user.

Now there is only super user mode, have you removed the normal user version?

Thanks

Nick

Hi Nick :)

No, I haven't changed anything !!
Packages downloaded from this site are supposed to still include 2 menu items.

Let me know of your distro and where have you installed the package from

Hello,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I'm running Kubuntu 10.04 (lucid) 64-bit and installing from the Launchpad PPA repository.

Please excuse my late reply.
I've been away at a small trip :)

I seem to have made a serious typo there while updating the menu items to include various translations.

Although both of the links read "super-user", one of them executes LB with normal privileges as expected.

I added this at the known issues (http://luckybackup.sourceforge.net/bugs.html) and will have it fixed at the next release.

Could you also confirm that this is the case ?
(one of the links runs LB as a normal user)

Confirmed!

The entry that appears in the System menu is the 'Super User' version whereas the entry in the Utilities menu runs with normal privileges.

Thanks for looking into this.

You know, most of the times feedback from users is all about problems, feature requests or support generally.
This is normal of course.

I really needed a comment like this.
Thank you Kate :)

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
