Back In Time is a simple backup tool for Linux, inspired by "flyback project".
It provides a command line client 'backintime' and a Qt4 GUI 'backintime-qt4'
both written in Python3.
You only need to specify 3 things:
* where to save snapshots;
* what folders to backup; and
* backup frequency (manual, every hour, every day, every month).

a new dialog to avoid this problem.
- Version bump to 1.1.12.
Upstream changelog:
* Fix bug: remove x-terminal-emulator dependency (#515)
* Fix bug: AttributeError in About Dialog (#515)
2016-01-11 -
- backintime-qt4 uses x-terminal-emulator to open a terminal with a
man page in the menus Help->Help and Help->Config File Help.
However, openSUSE does not have x-terminal-emulator, instead it
has xdg-terminal that does not work because it can only accept
one argument. Thus, the solution was to replace
x-terminal-emulator with xterm. Now, everything in the Help menu
is working properly.
2016-01-11 -
- Remove unnecessary BuildRoot in spec file.
- Change package URL to .
- Add patch backintime-1.1.10-AttributeError-About-Dialog.patch to
fix upstream issue #515. For more information, see:
