    To make it work with Linux Mint after installing ‘systemback’, I had to go into ‘synaptic package manager’ and remove ‘casper’. This will install ‘live-tools’ instead but it uninstalls ‘systemback’ too so after that install ‘systemback’ in ‘synaptic package manager’ and it should work fine. ‘Casper’ seems to be the problem with Mint so it runs fine with ‘live-tools’ instead.
