Linuxhelp _ Programming in Linux _ Application Launcher Backups

Posted by: TBotNik May 31 2014, 12:56 PM


When performing a backup of a system, if the application launchers (all the CNR "Click-N-Run" apps), or in other words the entire set of apps seen in the "Launcher Menu" (Kubuntu or Ubuntu or other distro), {Launcher Menu is similar to the Windows "Start" button for you newbies}; are not backed up then the backup is not complete.

Unfortunately I've been searching all over the inet for the last 3 years to find a script or any help that actually indentifies these, where they reside and how to back them up.

By now I obviously need help, so hope someone else has stumbled across info on this that can get me rightfully started on this part of the backup process.

All help appreciated!

You will need to explain how you are performing your backup. The files in question might be hidden folders.

Sorry forgot to tell you I'm on Kubuntu 12.04 LTS, and not on Unity.

Will never ever use or endorse that pile of Windows Wanna BE @#%$^^$$!

I got completely off Windows so want nothing that looks or feels like it!

Now I'm sure it is in the hidden folders, and one would suspect the .kde folder under /home/user, but there is nothing in any of that folder or any other folders under /home/user that indicates any such close relationship, so wondering if they databased it.

Let me know!

Again all help appreciated!
