Backup Tool app list doesn't show copyQ ?

Post by marklane » Tue Sep 25, 2018 10:01 am

Hi everybody!

I ran the list files Backup Tool but for some reason it doesn't list copyQ, which I see in the GUI and it was installed with the file manager. Why isn't it listed?

I added it to the BT file list manually, but used all small caps, which is a standard (sometimes). Will that work for app restore of copyQ? Are there other programs the Backup Tool list will miss?

As an aside, I tried a lot of different clipboards and copyQ has the best features, but it's a bit tricky to figure out.

Backup Tool only lists apps you installed via Software Manager. It can restore copyq (lower case spelling is correct for package names) in Mint 19 but it will restore it from the Mint/Ubuntu repositories, not whatever you "installed with the file manager".
