I agree it's a very nice menu for plasma 5. It would be my preferred but I miss two nice features from the default launchers in plasma:

1. Rapid access to recent/most used files and applications (actually, why recent vs most used, why cannot both be enabled if wanted?)

2. Modifier only shortcuts cannot be used, in addition to ESC, to exit the menu.

Is there any hope that these two features will be added at some point?

Also, I wonder if there is any place where I could make a more proper feature requests (e.g. kde or github). - May 31 2017

I guess this is because lost+found belongs to the root user and Kup currently cannot backup files belonging to third users (root included).

I would highly appreciate to have the option to enable admin backups from the kcm shell.

Thanks btw Sideshow for porting Kup to KF5! I am glad I can use Kup again :) - Mar 07 2016
Ok, thanks anyway.

In my case, my home partition (for work) is about 500GB with continuous data change, so after one year it can be quite a lot.

But the most important reason comes from hidden temporary files. Such a big backup takes a while and in the meantime those temporary files are created and removed by just browsing to give an example. The result is a backup fail, which is a bit annoying, although at the end if you check the log most of the times is due to that or to some "root" file in the home which you don't have the permissioins to backup, etc.

It would be informative to inform better about failed backups for the common user as they may worry too much for some minors like those, that were not even pretended to be backed up.

Would you agree? - Feb 03 2015
Forgot to say. It would be great to have that feature in the interface, but that may take more time. In the time being having the option to introduce it in kuprc would be nice. - Dec 16 2014
Hi,

Not sure if has been requested before or not, but it would be very helpful. For instance, I want to exclude all hidden files and folders and this would be very easy this way.

There is an option for this in bup already: --exclude-rx, so I think this should be relatively easy to implement.

One may say that this can be done manually. But, beyond being more comfortable, it also has the advantage that it would continue working after new hidden files and folders are created, without each time having to check and remove them manually.

For instance, when using new applications, new hidden files and folders about settings are usually created, and if not wanted, this just represents spam in the backup. Some users may not be aware of this, or don't want to care about checking each time. Hence, this feature from bup would be very powerful...

Let me know what you think.

Thanks - Dec 16 2014
it works fine for regular users.

I'll check kquitapp kupdaemon; kupdaemon from the terminal soon and let you know...

Thanks - Mar 02 2013
I just tried to run backup as root and it gave me an error.

Is there a debug command I could use in the terminal to give you some more specific information?

Thanks - Mar 01 2013
Great that you are considering it.

Looking forward! - Feb 26 2013
That's why I'd like Kup to accept different backends, especially rsync. That would be really neat (!) as currently a lot of people rely on rsync for their backups.

Would this be difficult to implement? - Feb 20 2013

Hi,

Nice application. One thing that could be improved is conflicts when using the bilateral synch. This happens when files have been changed in the two paths. Currently, KFolderSync automatically synchronizes the file with the latest modification, which may not be always the best. For instance when working on a file in two different computers, it might be that a point one forgets to synch last changes before start working on the different machine, and if so, previous changes will be lost without notification.

I typically work in this conditions and use unison, which asks what to do in such cases, whether to take the local vs remote machine, to see the diff, etc. Take a look in http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/

I think that if this works as in Unison, then a distinction between Synch and Bilateral Synch may not be necessary.

Also, it would be great to combine the previous with the backups, and that would be a clear advantage with respect to Unison. It would work the same as before, but instead of only keeping a copy of the file (the latest), it would keep all history of modifications, no matter the folder or the computer they were made.

I see a great potential with Bilateral Incremental Backups that correctly deal with conflicts. Right now I use Unison for Bilateral Synch and Kup for incremental backups (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Kup+Backup+System?content=147465)

Thanks and best! - Jul 10 2014

You could also try the Application Name Plasmoid. I did and works fine to me too...

http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=154324 - Oct 17 2013
I don't see anything in http://paste.chakra-project.org/5419/ that relates at all with the plasmoid, neither with plasma_applet_activeapp.so nor with plasma-applet-activeapp.desktop, so I have no clue to see whether your crash it's related to the plasmoid and if so, where to start trying to fix it :/

You are sure it's the plasmoid because if you remove it, crashes are gone? - Oct 17 2013
It covers my basic needs and I don't have time for much now.

Are you sure this plasmoid is the one that makes plasma to crash? Show me the backtrace or some debug information and I'll try to take a look...

Btw my programming skills in KDE/Qt are low too :) - Oct 14 2013

If you like to use this great theme in KDE, replace in index.theme:

- 'Type=big' by 'Type=Scalable'

and

- 'Context=Apps' by 'Context=Applications'

No need to change permissions (at least in my case).

All credit to the author of the theme! - Oct 17 2013

I installed tardis 0.05 from ppa first, but failed, so I tried with zip and worked, so I kept with it also for 0.06.

What is expected behavior if a backup takes too long to finish and new backup is scheduled before the first has finished? I may be in that situation and what I see is that second backup is skipped silently.

About roadmap, yeah, I understand, I was just wondering wether you already have some ideas in mind for future versions...

The nice feature in kup that I mentioned is that it detects when the external drive is connected, and even unmounted if the time since last backup is longer than scheduled, kup starts a new backup (or alternatively, depending on configuration, it asks about starting a new backup). If I have some time, I might take a look to see how easy/difficult it would be to add this feature...

Sorry if I bother you too much, I like tardis a lot, and hopefully my comments can help to improve it a bit - Dec 31 2012
I'm using Kubuntu Quantal (12.10) with KDE 4.9.95 (4.10 RC1), maybe there is something weird in my configuration (?)

Regarding how to deal with external drives, maybe you could borrow some code from kup, the way kup handles it is amazing (http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php/Kup+Backup+System?content=147465)

BTW, Tardis has a lot of potential, I wonder if there is a place to see a roadmap and/or to make feature requests... - Dec 31 2012
It seems that new version doesn't like stats.log missing in ~/.tardis (thanks plasmoidviewer!)

I just created a dummy empty stats.log file and this solved the issue

I also realized of the problem with existing /tmp/tardispipe file, and wondering whether this could be workaround somehow as well... - Dec 31 2012
Congratulations for the new version!

I tried to update to the new version but unfortunately I didn't get it to run, it seems there is some issue and the plasmoid is not initialized correctly. If I achieve to know about the problem, I'll post it here...

On the other hand, I realized that the cron job tries to find and run TARDIS.pl in a wrong path (at least in my case): /usr/share/kde4/apps/plasma/plasmoids instead of ~/.kde/share/apps/plasma/plasmoids - Dec 31 2012
very nice widget/application/concept/thing! I would recommend it to be in section KDE Archiving/Backup too, as it may be difficult to find.

btw, wondering if tardis deals with backups that are done in an external drive and at the time of scheduled snapshot the drive is not connected...

Hi,

Oxygen-transparent is great and I simply love it, but I realized that some apps (kile, digikam, rocs, maybe others) doesn't show icons when using the transparent version compared to the regular oxygen.

It happened the same to me with source code and with packages from this repository:

https://launchpad.net/~hrvojes/+archive/kde-goodies

Somebody has filled an apparently unrelated bug here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rocs/+bug/1012739

But I really think that his issues are also related to the problem I'm describing. I'm linking the two things to figure this out...

I'd love to have icons back and I'd love to help in testing to resolve the bug.

Many thanks in advance! - Jul 08 2012
