Need help with aptik: missing from menu

Post by wutsinterweb » Sat Jun 09, 2018 1:48 pm

I need to do a backup using aptik and for some reason, even after reinstalling, it is no where in my start menu. Mint Cinnomon 18.3
I'm just a student, your guidance is appreciated.

Did you installaptik-gtkas well? If not:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install aptik-gtk
There has been some changes to the new version of Aptik.
I suppose that's one of the ironies of life, doing the wrong thing at the right moment -C.C.

Has the procedure changed? I get the error message:

Code: Select all

Have you added the PPA to your repositories? If not, run the following commands one by one in a terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
Next, install Aptik:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install aptik aptik-gtk
Hope this helps!

Did not work, maybe the GUI has been removed from the repository?

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
You are about to add the following PPA to your system:

What version of Mint? If 17.x there isn't a build of aptik-gtk for trusty on the PPA. I don't know why. You could try installing the Deb directly from the releases section of
https://github.com/teejee2008/aptik-gtk

If that won't install I'd raise an issue on that GitHub.

Thanks, I was able to install the .deb directly. Using 17.1.
