Left over element of DejaDup

Post by Finston Pickle »

I successfully backed up my Linux Mint Cinnamon laptop using Backups (DejaDup).

I was surprised to see that both Backups and DejaDup were running as shown at the bottom left running programs.

What I was even more surprised to see after finishing the backup and closing both applications is that DejaDup still featured in KSysGuard Process Table as well as a DejaDup icon in the bottom right panel where the time is located. Hovering over the icon shows "Preparing". It never gets any different.

Do I close the process? Will this also get rid of the icon? Will it comeback? How can I remove the icon permanently.

Thanks in anticipation - DejaDup is not using CPU but is taking up memory.

Does DejaDup still show up after relogs and/or restarts?
I use Linux Mint 18.3 with Cinnamon in a VirtualBox VM for testing & sandboxing.

A good point - I have not tried a restart.

If it clears the issue, I will report that back.

If not - I am still puzzled.

Thanks Termy

Shutdown and restart got rid of that pesky icon.

Great suggestion!

Sometimes it's the simplest of things. :lol:
