View Full Version : [all variants] Help I want to backup application settings

November 5th, 2010, 04:27 PM
I have ubuntu installed on computer A. It has personal files on it as well as applications installed. I want to make a new insallation on computer B that has all the applications, repos and application settings. I know how to backup the list of applicaitions and the repos, but I don't know how to backup the settings.

I was thinking backup /home but all the personal stuff is there, so what can I do? There are a lot of settings that have been changed so it would be a huge pain to need to do it again!

Please help if you can!
