Well to be fair, it wasn't very straight forward (the sbackup install, that
is.) I am using Linux Mint which comes with a neat back-up tool
(mintBackup), but I don't like to use many distro specific tools because I
never know how long I'll be using a distro.
So, I also installed sbackup to check it out based on this thread. I also
couldn't figure out how to run it. I didn't see it in my menus (didn't
check Admin. though) and sbackup didn't work as a command, so what I did was
run 'locate sbackup', saw the README and opened it.
The I checked my Administration menu and sure enough it was there, though I
also saw all the config files with locate and could have done it that way.
So, I was in the same spot as the OP. I just know the locate command,
though a Google and a glace at sbackup's sourceforge page would have been
almost as fast, I imagine.
Anyway, yeah, I agree, but I also like the chance to help with the small
stuff because I have received so much help over the years, and I can't help
with the big stuff. If a psychologist were doing word associations on me
and said 'kernel' I'd still say 'popcorn.' :-)
