Thanks. I forgot about that one. Unfortunately, the newer versions are compiled for gtk3. Changing that appears to be easy. I got this in irc:
Code: Select all
<cyteen> Surprisingly apt-get source for yad-0.37 and changing debian/rules to
--with-gtk=gtk2 and debian/control Build-Depends to libgtk2.0-dev works just fine.
<cyteen> after a dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -b


Guess I'll be doing that for ascii.

Don't know if it's technically possible or maybe too difficult but instead of users installing all the tools and scripts into their desktop couldn't it all be done via booting the standard Refracta Live disk from USB and then pointing the Refracta Live tools to the Mint drive and it then spits out an ISO to /home/snapshot/ as before?

If that made any sense. :D

It's possible to do that, but not with refractasnapshot the way it is. I did make a script to create a snapshot of a dormant installed system, and it worked the first time, but not when I tried it again later. I haven't done anything with it in months.

One catch: you still need to install the live-* packages in the system that's being snapshotted if you want to be able to boot a live session. All the other dependencies for the refracta tools can be left out. They only need to be in the running system that's creating the snapshot.

Yad 0.37.0 (latest).. minor edits to (debian/) control, changelog and rules are enough.. gtk2 version debs (32 and 64) compiled for Jessie posted here with sources: http://exegnulinux.net/refracta/experimental/yad/ ..

Can you give me all the current links that's needed for the scripts and the latest refractasnapshot so i can try it with the latest Mint 18.1 “Serena” ?

I'm somewhat confused between all the previous talk of a Systemd scripts and YAD

Unless you rather it was all kept in this thread maybe once i've tried it i can start a new 18.1 thread if that's ok with you so it doesn't confuse other fellow newbies. :)

Thankyou Kindly

Here's how I did it -
linux-mint-18-t581-30.html#p6126

Notes:

- you can use the latest version of refractasnapshot -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/refracta/files/tools/

- install yad-0.27 before you install refracta tools, or you'll get the gtk3 version, which does not work right. (windows go off-screen and hide the buttons)
