i would like to try sbackup and i download the latest release from this site, open whit install packages and install it. I see two new link into system / administration menu, Simple Backup Conf and Simple Backup Restore, but if i try to run it i receive an error: unable to run sbakup so-no-root sub-system.
How can install it into my ubuntu 8.04
Thanks a lot
Are you still having this problem and keeping current with updates?
Here's what my entry in the menu looks like:
su-to-root -X -c /usr/sbin/simple-backup-config
Right-click on your menu and go to "Edit Menu" to see if yours matches.
after your reply i chek my menu and i see that there is the same line that you post. I change it into gksu /usr/sbin/simple-backup-config and the same for restor option and now it works.
I don't understand why sbackup use su-to-root -X -c for run the application, can you or someone explain it?
Thanks a lot.
su-to-root is actually a script that can call gksu (GNOME) or kdesu (KDE) or others. Using that allows the same package to be used in Ubuntu as Kubuntu or whatever. When I first installed sbackup I guess I didn't have su-to-root installed and it didn't turn up as a dependency. I think there are a few bug reports floating around on the subject - they'll figure it out.
Thanks for reply, i didn't know su-to-root is a good script for manage two distro with same interface to root.
