Backup or export data to another machine.

Asked by Cantoliv_67 on 2014-05-14

Alarm-clock is great .
I use it everyday as reminders, app launcher and webradio waker.
about 30 events.

I migrate to a new machine under Ubuntu 14.04.
I want to export all events ( at least 30) to this new installation.
Is it possible and how ???

I haven't tried this myself, but you should be able to export your alarms from the terminal using gconftool:

On the old machine:
gconftool --dump /apps/alarm-clock > alarm-clock.xml

Copy alarm-clock.xml to the new machine, then run:
gconftool --load alarm-clock.xml

Hope it helps!

The solution that you propose doesn't work fine, because when you restore the configuration (gconftool --load alarm-clock.xml), the time of the alarms is not correct. To solve it you need to go over each alarm clicking them one by one to refresh the alarm time of each alarm.

Is there any way the program can refresh all the alarms automatically?

Best regards,

Can you help with this problem?
