Progress of something happening or better yet, time left

Asked by someone1 on 2010-05-18

It'd be nice to see duplicity actually "doing" some work, whether it lists the files it's currently working on, or every volume it makes, or maybe some sort of "Remaining time." Obviously it's nearly impossible to compute the time remaining without actually knowing what changed and processing everything first, but maybe time remaining for each file it uploads? Just some activity to show its working would be nice (a GUI even!). I know there is the -v option, but that tells a little TOO Much hahaha...

It'd be nice, that's all, great utility otherwise!

If you want a GUI for duplicity, there is one called Deja Dup. It's quite good and may be what you're looking for :-)

If you use Ubuntu, it's in the repositories. Here's the project page:

It would be great, if there would be be a solution for getting the progress, so other programms can use progress. I had a look into dejadup - and the progress is a better hack for duplicity.
