Bug Description

I like in the UK, and need to use the --s3-european-buckets option to duplicity. I would love to use deja-dup, but this option can't be passed as an environment variable and there's no checkbox in the UI. One checkbox and one option would make my life much easier. Thanks!

as this option is only required upon creation of the bucket it would be useful to be able to either set the name of a pre-existing bucket or be asked upon creation of the bucket by deja dup.

looking forward to see either option implemented. thx for the great tool!

Manually setting the bucket name to one you've created within AWS with the correct region seems to work fine and is a relatively simple hack. I was inspired by the answer to question 81409 [1], the required dconf command is below and more details were an excuse for a blog post [2].

$ dconf write /org/gnome/deja-dup/s3/bucket \'bucket-name\'
