    Deja Dup Restore issues

    Hey-

    I just wiped my computer and went with a *complete* fresh install of Oneiric from USB, if only because I was too lazy to make a new partition table. Only-- when trying to restore the files I'd backed up on a separate HD using Deja Dup (which was also used to backup the files in the first place), the program simply loops between preparing and asking for the password (which, to my knowledge, is correct). The only thing I've gleaned from using Deja Dup from the console is that duplicity is killed shortly before I'm brought back to the password entry screen.

    As per some suggestions, I've tried killing the gnome password daemon, but this has been of no help.

    I'm sure mine is the plight of many schmucks who didn't take every damn precaution possible before backing up their precious, precious data, but I don't want to imagine that finding a GPG brute force option on my weeny little netbook would be anything near doable if I wanted a solution in my lifetime-

    So-- Are there any suggestions for what I might be doing wrong with Deja Dup, and why it won't let me restore my files?

    I am experiencing the exact same problem - the program loops between preparing and asking for password. It does the same thing when try to open the files in a share. Any pointers would be immensely helpfu...

    I'm having this exact same problem after completing a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04.

    I also am having a similar problem. Since upgrading to 12.04 Deja Dup refuses to accept my password for my Windows Share server. This happens both when I try a fresh back-up or when I try to initiate a restore.

    This was working fine before with Oneiric. Outside of Deja Dup I can still access my windows Share server using the Nautilus automount feature or by using a CIFS mount command.

    BTW the rest of the upgrade went just fine.
