Re: Recurson in cp command

A guess: you said "existing" copy. Have you tried using an empty directory for the target? (The goal is to get a complete first backup, and "delta" transfers thereafter.) man rsync: -u, --update This forces rsync to skip any files which exist on the destination and have a modifie...

Re: Recurson in cp command

But I am still stuck with my original task: writing a script that will back up all the changed files (only) on a data partition to an existing copy of the partition on a different disk drive. In other words, I want to do incremental backups. I'll echo eanfrid's post: this is exactly what rsync is f...

Re: migrating pam_environment from ubuntu

Thanks :) You are right - the colon doesn't belong there. Weird that 13.04 did not complain... Unfortunately that did not change the PATH variable (after I did a fresh login). :( I'm not familiar with .pam_environment . Maybe you need OVERRIDE, since $PATH is already defined? http://tech.deepumohan...

Re: Recurson in cp command

In either case I get a message saying “sending incremental file list” and listing the changed file, BUT in no case is the newer file actually copied to the backup directory. Try a simple example: mkdir -p foo/subdir/another touch foo/a foo/b foo/subdir/another/c ls -alh foo rsync -auvz foo/ bar ls ...

As for the command to go in the script, I have tried cp -fruv DIRECTORYPATH1/*.* DIRECTORYPATH2 but, despite the -...

Re: Upgrade Warnings: LMDE tracking TESTING [25-05-13]

Is there a better way to preview MDM themes than log in, choose one, and log out? In a terminal --> mdm-theme-emulator And load the index.html file of the theme you want to try. Neat, thanks. (For reference, themes are in /usr/share/mdm/html-themes/ . [url=http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?...

Re: Upgrade Warnings: LMDE tracking TESTING [25-05-13]

Upgraded to Cinnamon 1.8.8+lmde and mdm 1.2.5+lmde . Previous problems with mdm and nemo are solved. Only problem seems to be a noticeable startup delay with the cinnamon panels loading on boot. Worth the upgrade though :) Neat, I hadn't seen the upgrade was available. Is there a better way to prev...

Re: Upgrade Thunderbird [sorted]

I keep getting notification from Thunderbird to upgrade. I don't bother because if I just click on the link it sits there and does nothing. You need permission to write to the directory. Change the folder's owner from `root` to your user. $ sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /opt/thunderbird Or launch thund...

Re: Debian 7 Wheezy is out

those are fine? Should i add this one too: deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import ??? You'll need it to get Mint packages, but it won't be frozen -- it will evolve with jessie. If you want a stable Wheezy + Mint, get word to Clem & the gang. They can certainly cut a stab...

Press update (pretend for a minuet that snide comment thats forming about reading what you install doesn't get spat out) To "update," innocuous as it sounds, really is a fundamental difference from the Windows way of doing things. Programs, libraries, the whole kernel might change -- cont...
