Hi!

I began using Uberstudent about a week ago, and so far I really enjoy it! There is a lot of things to tweak, so it took a long time to get the system to work the way I wanted it. After customizing the system, I looked for a way to backup it so I don't have to do everything again if anything happens. I stumbled upon the Nepomuk backup tool, which seems to be pre-installed on the system. I tried to start it up, but it gives me a special error:

"The Nepomuk backup service does not seem to be running. Backups cannot be handled without it"

Which brings me to my two questions:
1- How can I start this Nepomuk backup service to get Nepomuk Backup to work?
2- Is there another backup tool I could use, in the event that Nepomuk doesn't fit my needs?

Thanks for any answer!

Guillaume Ross

Hi,

I really don't know ANYTHING about Nepomuk. I once tried Deja-Dup which was easy to use and which would be an alternative. But it installs a lot of dependencies as for example Ubuntu One.
Code:
sudo apt-get install deja-dup

If your customizations concern the desktop environment and themes etc, you could also consider backing up your /home/username directory.
Don't know very much about backing up services, sorry :oops:

It's not preinstalled, except for a few icons.

I'd recommend Dropbox. Have you tried it?

First off, thanks for your quick answers!

I do use dropbox, but I don't really see it as a proper "backup" solution for a whole OS. Is there anything I could use to make an image of the system in order to easily restore it afterwards? Or is it better to go plain "dd" command on the different disk partitions?

I will give "deja-dup" a run though.

Try Remastersys. It's preinstalled.
