nssbackup doesn't work under jaunty

Asked by robert leleu on 2009-04-25

Nssbackup worked under Ibex, but no more under Jaunty.

So I uninstalled it (it was I think a release from sources) and installed from depots.

Since it did not work from the menu (no windows appears), i tried from a terminal: here is the result

tux@tux-laptop:~/nssbackup/nssbackup-0.2-0.orig/scripts$ nssbackup-config-gui
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/nssbackup-config-gui", line 20, in <module>
    from nssbackup.ui.SBConfigGTK import main
ImportError: No module named nssbackup.ui.SBConfigGTK

having read the question of Pirboazo, I cheked my installation, found that python 2.5 is used, but did not find the requested file:

tux@tux-laptop:/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages$ ls
nssbackup-2.0-py2.5.egg-info

However I exported the path:

tux@tux-laptop:~/nssbackup/nssbackup-0.2-0.orig/scripts$ export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages

and tried again

tux@tux-laptop:~/nssbackup/nssbackup-0.2-0.orig/scripts$ nssbackup-config-gui
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/nssbackup-config-gui", line 20, in <module>
    from nssbackup.ui.SBConfigGTK import main
ImportError: No module named nssbackup.ui.SBConfigGTK
tux@tux-laptop:~/nssbackup/nssbackup-0.2-0.orig/scripts$

so I don't know what I should do ? Install from source?

thanks

Hi robert ,

Try to install Nssbackup from the package :
https://edge.launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team/+archive/ppa

These package are ok.

Regards.
Pierre

I went to the given URL, and added

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nssbackup-team/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/nssbackup-team/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

and followed "Follow these instructions for installing packages from this PPA."

however Synaptic gives an eror message:

"W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com jaunty/main Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/fr.archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_jaunty_main_binary-i386_Packages)

I disregarded this advertisement and asked for nssbackup to be installed, and it worked.

Thanks

Thanks PirBoazo, that solved my question.
