downloaded Mondo recovery program from Synataptic, where do i go to execute

Asked by Arthur Davis on 2011-03-06

downloaded Mondo recovery program from Synaptic

It does not show up in my pull-down menus or in my downloads folder. I downloaded the documentation but i cant find that either. If someone could help me with this it would be appreciated. Also if there is some trick to installing or running it or if I need some command line arguments. Is there a default folder for some programs?

Thanks

Arthur

Hi Arthur Davis

Some applications don't add an item to the main menu so you have to start them from terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) or add your own item.

Try running the command below in terminal and enter you password when requested:
sudo mondoarchive

After a quick google search I found this as well which refers to the same issue as you had if further assistance is needed.

Hope that helps.

See the FAQ question/answer #11 on the Mondo project's Wiki. This is available at
http://trac.mondorescue.org/wiki/FAQ#Q11DoesmondoworkwithDebianUbuntudistributions

Basically there's a version incompatibility which means that you don't get the latest version. I'd suggest that any software that is used for backup/disaster-recovery ALWAYS should be at the latest stable version. Note that (a) you really need to do the usual "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade" sequence after adding the Mondo repo, and (b) note that bit in the FAQ entry about adding the Mondo repo's key.

I had the "umount /mnt/cdrom not found" message too - but following the instructions on that FAQ entry resolved the issue completely and my system is currently running a mondoarchive backup.

Can you help with this problem?
