Flyback: Backup & recovey tool for Linux!

Flyback is a backup and recovery tool loosley modified by Apple’s “Time Machine”.. So here is a Linux implementation (built off of rsync, of course). No fancy OpenGL, but quite functional none-the-less.”

  • Excludes are now implemented
  • Automation is now implemented
  • Can now run backups gui-less via “–backup”
  • All commands (not just rsync) get outputed to the command output box now
  • Fixed restore permissions error, other bugs

Debian :–

sudo apt-get install python python-glade2 python-gnome2 python-gnome2-extras python-gtk2 rsync

Ubuntu : –

sudo apt-get install python python-glade2 python-gnome2 python-gnome2-extras python-gtk2 python-gconf python-gobject rsync
