  • Add new year to source files headers and debian/copyright file
  • Add support for Ubuntu 15.04 to Install Pack
  • Fix window position when opening with multiple screens

  • Add support for memory cards usability with memory card slot

    It is perfect and full of options although very simple to use (I tested it in Xubuntu 14.04, Mint 17 and SolydX, in this latest one (Debian-base) only the commandline, which gives a very scaled down version of Systemback).
    So if I may say so, now first a full version for Debian.

    Why wont Systemback copy my userdata from liveusb to target device hdd?

    When i boot up the live usb, everything is there my scripts, my files.
    But when i press “install system” it asks me to create a new user.
    I do so.. it starts installing “done”

    Reboot, and i’m greeted with the ubuntu logon screen without any of my original users. Just the newly created empty user

  3. Thanks. But why do you add the $ sign before sudo commands? Including that results in command not found.
