Deja-Dup lacks Menus for Restoring single files

Asked by Greg Dance on 2019-01-28

Hello

I'm running Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 x64
Deja-Dup 34.2
Duplicity 0.7.06
Gnome Nautilus 3.13.3

My problem is finding the menus that Deja-Duyp describes using in its help that offer single or multi file restores instead of the entire backup set being restored.
I backup over FTP

On my system (18.04 vanilla Ubuntu), I see the menus. I'm not sure why they wouldn't appear for you. Maybe because of Mint, but it shouldn't matter.

Here's a workaround for now though:

deja-dup --restore FILE1 FILE2...
deja-dup --restore-missing DIR

Thank you for your help.
 An I ask you if through menus you are able to see a browse able list of restorable files and folders?
Thanks
