Yes, I'm an idiot. Confused

My /usr/share/applications/pbackup.desktop:
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Pbackup backup to CD/DVD/HD
Icon=mini-diskette.xpm
Comment=Pbackup backup to CD/DVD/HD
Exec=pbackup
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Archiving
GenericName=Pbackup

Can you please try to make the necessary mods and report back. I can't see what's wrong with mine.

Sorry for not being clear enough - what you posted is fine, but it doesn't match what is in the .pet - unless somehow I've got an old .pet labelled as 3.03

I just downloaded the .pet again, and it does have the wrong .desktop file.

For what it's worth, to make the one in the .pet work you can just make it read like:
Code:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Pbackup Backup & Sync
Icon=mini-diskette.xpm
Comment=Pbackup Backup & Sync
Exec=pbackup
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Archiving
GenericName=Pbackup Backup & Sync


There's not really any need to replace the .pet, as it doesn't actually break anything, just jwm -p doesn't like it, so it is worth fixing in future releases. I guess possibly some other window manager would have a real problem, but I doubt it.

Oops Embarassed
I just realised that even though jwm -p gives an error with "&" but doesn't with "&", "&" works fine, but "&" is actually broken Embarassed
With my version pmirror, which is after pbackup in the menu, doesn't show up, but when you click pbackup, it runs pmirror.
So your version is better. But this seems like a bug in JWM? I am running JWM 1.8, so I don't know if it is the same with 2.x

I make it 'Backup and Sync'. Then we're safe. Smile

What does it actually do in the way of synchronisation? The file you posted "backup to CD/DVD/HD" might be a more accurate description - and it is probably a little clearer for new users anyway.

I just installed Puppy-3.01-retro to my hard drive and made several tweaks and changes to it.
I uninstalled Seamonky and installed opera and sylpheed.
Using pbackup 3.03, I made a "Full" backup to my second ext2 partition.
I used /root/ in the "From" location.
Does my backup now contain my changes to Puppy? such as my removal of seamonkey and install of opera/sylpheed?

If not, what directories do I need to include in the "From" box to include my entire Puppy hard drive install?

I'll give 2 examples of what I'm asking. I would like to have backups similar to these 2 listed below.

1. In Windows 98, I use Ghost and make an image of my C:\ drive, and can restore my complete setup with one file from a boot floppy.

2. On my Zaurus, I can make a NAND backup in the diagnostics menu, then later restore my entire operating system with all settings and installed programs intact.

You should set / in the field 'Save from'. / is the top of the Puppy filesystem. Other filesystems are by default mounted in
/mnt/, so this should be added in the field 'Exclude from backup'. Activate the option 'Compress result' to squeeze it all into one file. If ever needed, boot your crashed system with a Puppy Live-CD. Then use Pupzip to extract your compressed puppy-system-file to a clean filesystem. This will rebuild your system.

Just a small suggestion, the same as one of my suggestions for pfind:
How about in the next version (if there is one Smile )checking for defaulthtmlviewer rather than defaultbrowser (or maybe just before defaultbrowser) when determining the help viewer?
I guess this would probably apply to other things like pburn as well.

The defaulthtmlviewer crashes on my system. That's the reason for not using it. I thought it was best to wait until I run a stable Puppy 4. I am aware of it, and has placed it on my todo-list. Thanks for mention it.
