Yes, sbackup is an Ubuntu-based utility, and is gnome-based.

I have not used it in a while, but I used to use it as my main backup 
tool with no issue - not sure if I stopped using it pre- hardy opr 
sometime before Intrepid. The app itself has not been updated since May 
of 2007.

I just installed it in karmic, and all the options are available to me. 
perhaps you have some missing dependencies? I suggest looking in your 
menu editor for the app's entry to find the command line to use, and 
plug that into a terminal to see if it spits out any error message about 
missing 'blah' or can't find 'foo'
