There seems to be more than one issue: 1. Bug #1276348 ssh-agent is missing in backintime-kde in versions <= 1.0.34. Please install this patch with sudo patch /usr/bin/backintime-kde4 < backintime-kde4.diff 2. sudo vs. kdesudo sudo doesn't change $HOME but kdesudo does. $ sudo env | grep ^HOME HOME=/home/germar $ kdesudo env | grep ^HOME ...

I was able to overcome this problem by making a backup locally to an external hard drive. After making this backup I was able to backup remotely without any problems.

From man losetup : -P, --partscan force kernel to scan partition table on newly created loop device So just run $ sudo losetup -f --show -P /path/to/image.img to mount every partition of your disk image on the first unused loop device and print it to stdout.

As of BTRFS tools 3.12 and Linux kernel 3.13, the answer is no. When serialized BTRFS data (incremental or otherwise) is deserialized (btrfs receive), and the intermediate volume deleted, the latter volumes are updated. When they're re-serialized (btrfs send) they have different IDs. Latter serialized volumes which refer back to their parent volume by ID are ...

Just adding some additional considerations to Rinzwind's great answer: Importing data files from Windows is easy as long as they are not in a very uncommon format. Pictures, videos, office documents and more can be opened and viewed right away (you will be prompted by the Ubuntu software for installing any missing components for closed source formats ...

What I want to know is can I view the Windows backed up files in Ubuntu and then select the ones I need to restore? No / doubt it. These backups tend to be created for that specific program in Windows and have some form of encryption or compression. You need to restore the files you want in Windows and then copy them over to Ubuntu. For example, I ...

I fix this problem with those steps: check the size (parted) of the physical partition (ie. /dev/sda5) is smaller than the lvm Physical volume (PV) (pvscan) disable lvm pvchange -an with fdisk -l, write down the starting block for each partition with fdisk delete the partition (ie. /dev/sda5) and write changes with fdisk create a new partition of the same ...

Either run chkdsk from Windows or sudo umount /dev/<partition> sudo fsck.ntfs /dev/<partition> from linux.

I had the same issue recently. When I googled I found out that I need to boot up with Windows and run ckdsk /f or probably the same thing from GUI, via properties menu of a disk. I could believe that Ubuntu can not fix it itself...But it really does the trick. NTFS is a closed source Microsoft file system, and you'll need Windows to repair it, by running ...

Have you tried using the --verbose option? Hopefully this will make rsync tell you something about what's going on. Side note: If it were me, I wouldn't be backing up the whole of /. Even with the exclusions you've listed, you'll still be backing up a lot of (pretty large) files that don't need backing up, like /usr and /bin. It's probably easier to sync ...

First, my compliments on having a current backup -- you've hit the 90th percentile of diligence right there. Now to proceed, I would do this: Boot from the install CD into the Live Ubuntu envrironment (or if using a server CD, choose the Repair option.) Open a shell window Mount the root drive to /mnt, e.g. sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt Create a second ...

First try to restore with duplicity. duplicity --gio file:///media/backup /tmp/restore There are some reasonably detailed (and mostly correct) steps over here. Key details The key point is to unpack all of the duplicity-full.*.difftar.gz files in the same place, so that you're left with just two snapshot/ and multivol_snapshot/ directories. If your file ...
