I have "Backup" DejaDup app backing up my home folder to an encrypted external USB hard drive, but it takes hours. The GUI's "backup now" button is grayed out, indicating it's running, and Gnome says "starting scheduled backup". However, I have no idea how long it should take. Is there anyway to get progress info from DejaDup?
Top shows that the duplicity process is running with the option
--log-fd=16. Duplicity's manpage indicates that this is the file descriptor of the log file it writes status updates to. However, if I run
tail -f 16, I get the error
tail: no files remaining. How do I read this log file descriptor?
