I wanted to restore my backup (created with Deja Dup on Fedora 15) from Amazon S3, but the option to set up Amazon as storage location in Ubuntu's Deja Dup seems to be missing. I only have Ubuntu One, SSH, FTP, WebDAV, Win Share, local folder and custom location.

Am I missing some package(s), is it some bug, or maybe I'm just doing something wrong? Uncle Google refuses to help... :(

And if you want to backup to Rackspace Cloud Files, install python-cloudfiles – Richard Jul 31 '12 at 9:59
How utterly unintuitive. – ændrük Nov 14 '12 at 16:37
