Can't Save Configuration or Take Snapshot with Back in Time

Post by ablebaker » Mon May 07, 2018 12:01 pm

Code: Select all

inxi -Sz:
System:    Host: mylinux Kernel: 4.13.0-39-generic x86_64 (64 bit)
           Desktop: Cinnamon 3.6.7  Distro: Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Using Synaptic Package Manager I've installed backintime-common and backintime-qt4. When launched from the Menu, Back in Time opens the settings window. I then identify where the snapshots are to be stored, what files to backup, and when the backup is to take place. When I click OK, nothing happens--the configuration is never saved. The main window of Back in Time never opens so there is never an opportunity to make a snapshot.

I obviously need help in configuring and running this application. Thanks in advance.
