Question #228859 on sbackup changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/228859

Status: Open = Needs information

Anton requested more information:
Hi Muhammed,

Are you running sbackup as user or as root? Did you check if you are
using the right sbackup profile?

Could you please post the relevant line from your crontab, use 'crontab
-l' for your user crontab, or /etc/crontab for root?

Best,
Anton.

[Nssbackup-team] [Bug 1179080] Re: sBackup unable to be configured for external media destination

2013-05-21 Thread Anton
Dear Roger,

Are you using sbackup as root (super-user) or as (regular) user?
Are there any special (non alphabetical) characters in your directory name(s)?
Could you check if you can set the desired local backup target using the 
configuration file (/etc/sbackup.conf for root, or 
~/.config/sbackup/sbackup.conf for user)? Look for a line that says 'target = ' 
and add the target directory after the equal sign (I believe a space between 
equal sign and directory name is required).

Best,
Anton.

Re: [Nssbackup-team] [Bug 1179080] Re: sBackup unable to be configured for external media destination

2013-05-21 Thread Roger McCowan
Dear Anton,

I am using sbackup as root, because I want to have regular scheduled
backups and that has not been possible with normal user access.

Specifically, nothing has changed in my directory structures at all, the
only change being from 12.10 to 13.04.  All my folder names are
alphabetical or alpha-numeric without spaces or odd characters.

My external destination backup drive is the same one as I have been
using for the past 3 or 4 years, always with sBackup (I did try deja dup
for a bit, but decided it was hopeless when it came time to restore
files, so reverted to sbackup), and basically the same sbackup
configuration file, although I have re-built it when I have installed a
new distro release.

Can you tell me the exact path and filename for the sbackup
configuration file, please?  Perhaps I can restore it from an earlier
archive, and use it in place of the one which the current installation
prevents from being configured.

Regards and thanks,
--
