Thread: backintime problem

    Default backintime problem

    Hellow,

    I installed backintime backup packman repository for opensuse 11.4 and kde 4.7.2.

    When run in console I get this:

    $ backintime-kde4

    Back In Time
    Version: 1.0.7

    Back In Time ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY Comes With.
    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
    under Certain Conditions; backintime-kde4 type `- license 'for details.

    X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3
    Major opcode: 20 (X_GetProperty)
    Resource id: 0x2000042

    Thanks.

    Tried also on 11.4 with kde 4.7.2 and do not see that problem (my backintime
    also shows version 1.0.7 while the rpms indicate 1.0.8).

    backintime-kde-1.0.8-1.pm.3.1.noarch
    backintime-1.0.8-1.pm.3.1.noarch

    I wonder what is different on your system (which repos do you use for kde
    4.7?). I use

    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.4/
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.4/

    Ok I can see the message when I click a bit around in the backintime gui but
    it has absolutely no effect for its functonality.
    Is your question just what that message means (there are lots of google hits
    which explain that in general) or does your application crash?

    GUI does not start. It closes when trying to run the program.

    I also use these repos for kde.

    Since there must be somewhere a difference why it works for me and not for
    you, which python version do you have?
    The application is just a shell script which runs the python file
    /usr/share/backintime/kde4/app.py
    so the output of
    Code:
    rpm -q python # shows python-2.7-9.10.2.x86_64 in my case
    could help.

    Since the gui does not work can you also show which version the packages
    python-kde4 and python-qt4 have?
    Code:
    rpm -q python-kde4
    rpm -q python-qt4
    I have
    python-kde4-4.7.2-4.2.x86_64
    python-qt4-4.8.5-76.3.x86_64
    which matches the kde 4.7 repo.

    I checked and I have exactly those versions.

    Any other ideas? How a virtual machine with kde 4.7.1 works for me without problems?

    I can only think about tracing the application until it crashes, for the
    python script you do that with the -v switch
    Code:
    python -v /usr/share/backintime/kde4/app.py

    That is strange, the trace shows loading all imported modules and directly
    afterwards it unloads everything cleanly just as if you pressed the cancel
    button.
    It does not crash it just terminates itself gracfully. I have no clue what
    the reason can be.
    I have no further ideas.

    If you don't care that it fetches some gnome libs as dependencies, I would
    try the backintime-gnome gui (works also on kde) and see if that works for
    you.
