Deja Dup backup from Ubuntu, restore fail in Mint

Postby junaidkabir on Mon Jan 21, 2013 5:10 am

Hello Everyone,

I am not suer if it really works or not. I took a backup of my system running in ubuntu 12.04 (using deja dup backup tool). Now i am trying to restore in in Linux Mint 14 (using deja dup). But the backup is failing after start (showing following errors). Am I trying to do something which is technically unsupported? If not can anyone please show me the right direction?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Just an obvious question... are you running as sudo?
I generally don't use salutation, valedication, or please when answering your questions. I'm not a jerk; you have a question, I have a possible solution.

Sorry for the late response. Tried running as sudo as well. Didn't work. Ended with the same error as before. :(
