Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Systemback is an application for creating backups similar to Timeshift, enabling the users to fully restore the operating system. It provides the functions of any modern backup software, including: system backup, system restore, system copy, system install, Live system create, system repair and system upgrade.
Starting with version 1.0, Systemback has been ported to Qt5. The latest version available is Systemback 1.1.1, which has been released a while ago, coming with changes and enhancements.
In this article I will show you how to install Systemback 1.1.1 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trust Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Systemback 1.1.1 on Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the systemback package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nemh/systemback
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install systemback
Optional, to remove systemback, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove systemback
