https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/129095

Al_ posted a new comment:
Further to the question, how to run from the commandline: I have not
seen an option to install sbackup without GUI components for use on a
server. May I politely suggest, if technically feasible, to split the
sbackup package, e.g., in sbackup-core (=no GUI) and sbackup (GUI
components, with dependency on sbackup-core)?

Obviously I will then need to manually edit /etc/sbackup.conf. This does
not seem difficult even without man entry for sbackup.conf; the
configuration file on my Ubuntu desktop machine (with GUI) is self
explanatory.

And last, of course, many thanks for sbackup. My Ubuntu enjoys it daily;
and I will enjoy it when the harddisk goes belly up.

 i used to have a cron job setup to run sbackup on servers every night:

 if [ -x /usr/sbin/sbackupd ]; then /usr/sbin/sbackupd; fi;

 After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10 this no longer seems to workHelp?

It's now called /usr/sbin/sbackup

Sorry, that should have been /usr/bin/sbackup

Question #129095 on Simple Backup changed:
https://answers.launchpad.net/sbackup/+question/129095

Status: Open = Answered

Jean-Peer Lorenz proposed the following answer:
Thanks for using SBackup.

Beginning with sbackup 0.11.x the naming scheme was changed. It is now
more consistent and intuitive. sbackupd was renamed since it's actually
not a system deamon:

'sbackup'  - the backup programm (was 'sbackupd')
'sbackup-config-gtk' - configuration gui written in GTK+
'sbackup-restore-gtk' - restoration and snapshot handling (delete, upgrade) 
written in GTK+

HTH,
Jean-Peer.


P.S.: You can define/set up a cron job using the configuration gui (when 
running as root). Supported are simple schedules (e.g. daily, hourly) as well 
as custom cron expressions (e.g. 10 * * * *).
