The malware for Free File Sync was attached to the Windows installer by Sourceforge. This is a known problem with Sourceforge and Windows programs--so far, they've been leaving Linux apps alone.

Well that is good to know, that it does not effect linux. It is worth while though to check things before downloading them.

I see that Freefilesync is only offering a static amd64 binary for Linux users. If anybody wants, I can add deb packages for 32 and 64-bit version 8.0 to one of my OBS repositories, built from the source code.

I would like that! I use it around our office to do a "lite" backup of our file server. But for whatever reason when I used the .deb right from the site I could never get the app to see the shared folders on the network. I'm sure I have deeper issues with Samba but having a "standard" app that I can use, and that is understandable to the less technical people in the office would be ideal.

I'm sure that one of the many rsync solutions is probably better, but I'm also trying to make sure that whoever has to run this when I'm not in the office can still get things done.

OK--it should be in the MX 15 test repo soon, but I'll also add it to an OBS repo.

OK--let me know how it works if you test it. Since there are no other Debian-style repos with FFS 8.0 in it presently, I'm sort of sailing uncharted waters here.

One of my favourites is Radio Tray. It's a streaming radio player that resides in my Tint2 system tray. I have it set to our local CBC. It works well and stays out of my way.

Interesting great application :D :D

Syncany
Is an open source Dropbox-like file sync and backup tool.
http://syncany.readthedocs.org/en/lates ... ncany.html
*****The software is still alpha software!

So what makes Syncany awesome?
- Automatic/continuous file synchronization
- Use-your-own storage (FTP, S3, WebDAV, NFS, Samba/Windows file share, ...)
- Files are encrypted before upload (don’t trust anybody but yourself)
- Files are deduplicated locally (massive space savings on remote storage)
- Files are intelligently versioned (restoring old versions or deleted files is easy)

7. Security
Syncany takes security very seriously.
http://syncany.readthedocs.org/en/latest/security.html


Amazon S3 Plugin
Dropbox Plugin
Flickr Plugin
FTP Plugin
Local Plugin
OpenStack Swift Plugin
RAID0 Plugin
Samba Plugin
SFTP Plugin
WebDAV
PluginWeb interface: plugins implement a web frontend for Syncany.

Commands:
http://syncany.readthedocs.org/en/latest/commands.html

What shouldn’t I use Syncany for?
Critical files: At the moment, do not use Syncany for critical files. The software is still alpha software!
Low CPU environments: Syncany uses up quite a bit of CPU power when it is indexing files.

I'm not sure why the "echo" line didn't work for me but with nano I got it all sorted.

Now it works! Also got a notice saying that a new version was out, but that aside all seems to have gone smoothly. I'll probably still need to test it further but so far the app functions as expected.

The command must be run as root, if `sudo` is used then the permissions are lost on the other side of the redirection.

Try:

Code: Select all

sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freefilesync.list <<< "deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevepassert/Debian_8.0/ /"
Or:

Code: Select all

su -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevepassert/Debian_8.0/ /' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freefilesync.list"

Good point HoaS.

I tried it with "su" and, kept getting authenticaion failures ... I'm sure that it's something odd. For context I'm using a BunsenLabs VM, so that might be it.

I also tried the sudo version and that worked ... I've never seen "tee" before. going to look that up.

OK, the new FFS 8.1 version is built and in that repo, so it should show up as an upgrade if it's enabled. It took some tinkering with the patches, because the source code changed and affected those.

Yes, it is -- BunsenLabs locks the root account by default so `su` won't work.

To unlock it, reset the root password:

Code: Select all

sudo passwd root
