    Problems with Bacula

    I am trying to get Bacula working on my Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop machine.

    Thus far I have had the following problems:

    1) The Menu entry for "Bacula Administration Tool" in the GNU "system tools menu" points at /usr/sbin/bat

    However the file (from your package) has been installed at:

    usr/bin/bat

    2) When running the above from the GNU menu, it needs to be run as root. But the menu has not be configured correctly.

    3) The permissions on config file for the monitor program are not set correctly.

    So far I have managed to fix the above - but am starting to loose confidence.

    Regards

    Andrew

    I just installed bacula-director-qt and hit the same problem as you did. I have filed a bug report for this:
    Bug #387778

    My bat.conf got the following permissions on install:
    Code:
    -rw-r----- 1 root bacula 180 2009-06-16 10:16 /etc/bacula/bat.conf
    This means I can use BAT if my user belongs to the bacula group:
    Code:
    sudo adduser martin bacula
    You need to logout/login or su to your own user for this to take effect. Use the "groups" command to check.

    Do you mean /etc/bacula/tray-monitor.conf? For me it got the same permissions as all other config files (rw for root, r for bacula group).

    I have tested the Bacula 2.4.4-1ubuntu5 packages under Kubuntu 9.04.
