Hi Jean-Peer,

I'll be installing 13.04 in a couple of weeks (will be spending 6 hours
in the train to Berlin - perfect time), and will be happy to test
things then and there. (At the same time, I may start looking into
Mint.)

Groetjes,
Anton.

2013-06-23 Thread Jean-Peer Lorenz
Thanks to all for reporting this issue. I'll look into it and fix it
asap! Sorry for any inconvinience.

@Alvin Ho (alfkh): maybe it is better to stick to a LTS version
(currently 12.04) with long term support and stability?

As a side note from the developer view: same holds for me...things are
working and suddenly stop with a new version of the distribution
(therefore I'm running Debian now). This takes a lot of effort to test
pre-release...Help is welcome...

Regards,
Jean-Peer

Just as info. I have exactly the same problem since I upgraded to Ubuntu 13.04.
Backup to the standard folder on the laptop works but a new destination cannot 
be set.

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

2013-06-06 Thread Alvin Ho
Workaround avail, albeit not a very nice 1. Fortunately for me, i
installed a 12.04.2LTS partition on the same disk. I managed to boot
into that partition  restore my data to it. Since it was not a lot of
data, I was able to restore it without too much pain.

 I'm quite a newbie at this, so to me, it should make no difference if
i'm root, or normal user with sudo priveledges. It was working in 12.04,
12.10 right?  in 13.04 it stopped working. I can only conclude that
something has changed in 13.04; the only major change i'm aware of is
NAUTILUS. Apparently sbackup queries some feature from Nautilus that is
no longer there.

The only way we can know for sure, is if we can install a 13.04 system
with a 12.10 or 12.04 version of nautilus  try to change the backup
destination. In the meantime, i think i'm gonna de-install/un-install
sbackup. In 13.04, it's as good as scuba gear in the desert anyway.

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,
--

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

2013-05-14 Thread Roger McCowan
Hi Catalin,

Thank you for the feedback.

Unfortunately, the functionality remains affected for me.  Although I
selected Use custom local backup directory and clicked away the
messages that came up a couple of times, selected the external drive,
clicked away the messages a couple more times, it appeared to keep the
selected external drive, so I saved the configuration, then attempted to
run a backup.  I then received the error:
An error occurred
Not enough free space in the target directory for the planned backup
(free: 166120 MiB 484 KiB, required: 218136 MiB 308 KiB 698).

Upon checking, it was attempting to use the default backup directory
(/var/backup), not the external drive.

So I am still without a convenient backup tool (I have tried Deja Dup,
but don't like it, especially when I need to restore a file).

Regards,
--

I have the same problem after the 13.4 update, but it doesn't seem to
have affect the functionality of simple backup. I just click away a
couple of such messages and then it works fine.
