Plans for a Linux GUI

#42

This is the same bug as Setting up Duplicacy for a headless job on Linux

Basically you have DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS set but for some reason it isn’t working. Duplicacy should have handled this situation more gracefully but you can unset this variable as a workaround.


#43
env | grep DUPLICACY

Shows no environment variables set so I don’t think this is the explanation, or, if it is the explanation, then I need more luser friendly explanation of what to do! TIA, Chris


#44

try running

unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS

Before running duplicacy


#45

The key thing was to realise that

duplicacy_linux_x64_2.2.0

wasn’t an installer but the program itself so needed to be renamed and moved to /usr/local/bin (as well as the chmod which I’d already done). I do still seem to need the

unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS

but I do now seem to have a backup initialising. Fingers crossed. I will stick with the CLI for now but will look out for the next iteration of the web-UI for linux and use that when it comes. Thanks for the help.

If I didn’t stupidly miss something obvious about the renaming then I think the web site for duplicacy could do with better documentation, perhaps particularly for linux.
