I have tried sbackup.  I can't make it work, even going through the
procedure spelled out in the Ubuntu documentation.  

I have a desktop system with two users.  I am the "administrator" and my
wife also has an account.  I want her to use a backup to create her own
file backups.  I can do that from my account, but, when she tries it
from her account, the system asks for her administration password or
tells her that she doesn't have permission to run the program.
