    Question Simple Backup Suite - Not installing properly

    Hi there,

    I just went to install sbackup using

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sbackup
    everything appeared to work fine but the Simple Backup Suite menu item was not added to System / Administration and upon running sbackup using Alt - F2 I get the following error:

    An error occurred

    Critical Error: No configuration file for the default profile was found!

    Now continue processing remaining profiles.
    I've tried reinstalling using Synaptic Package Manager but no luck. The program won't run and all I can see is the indicator icon which, when I click on it, says:

    Simple Backup
    -------------------------
    Profile: unknown
    Size of backup: unknown
    Progress: canceled
    Remaining time: finished
    -------------------------
    Cancel Backup
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Just try:

    Code:
    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure sbackup
    $ sudo simple-backup-config
    To start backups:
    Code:
    $ sudo sbackupd

    Thanks that did it! Still no menu item in Administration but maybe they removed that. Also this Simple Backup Suite is much different from the one in the tutorial on ubuntu.com...

    Re: Simple Backup Suite - Not installing properly

    Hi,

    I have just had the same problem. It seems to be a bug in the Sbackup configuration of the menu shortcuts.

    To solve the problem you need to edit the respective .desktop files in /usr/share/applications/ .

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/sbackup-restore-su.desktop
    This will open gedit with root privileges.

    Edit the following line from:
    Code:
    Categories=GTK;GNOME;System;
    to

    Code:
    Categories=GTK;GNOME;System;Settings;
    Once this is done the option to open the Sbackup Restore with root permissions should be visible in System --> Administrator.

    Do the same for the configuration application component using the following command.

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /usr/share/applications/sbackup-config-su.desktop
    The line to edit is exactly the same as above.

    I have also reported this as a bug (Bug 808260) as it's a trivial problem that is really bloody annoying.
