Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Zbackup is a commad-line only deduplicating backup tool, re-using the data that has been already backed up as .tar, in order not to create duplicates and store only the new changes. It has support for both open-source and proprietary archive formats.
The latest version available is Zbackup 220.127.116.11, which has been recently released.
In this article I will show you how to install Zbackup 18.104.22.168 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Zbackup 22.214.171.124 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the zbackup package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install zbackup
Optional, to remove zbackup, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove zbackup
Or, if you want to uninstall zbackup, disable the recently added PPA and downgrade all the packages that got updated via the PPA, do:
$ sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:eugenesan/ppa
