[mintbackup] launching from command line doesn't work fully

Bug #411955 reported by Philip Morrell on 2009-08-11
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Linux Mint

Bug Description

Gloria Main - mintBackup 1.6.2
firstly, why are there two seperate launchers?

$ mintbackup
launches the backup window as expected
$ mintbackup ~/home_*.backup
still launches the backup window, rather than restore window
$ mintBackup
launches the backup window as expected
$ mintBackup ~/home_*.backup
launches the restore window as expected

solution: mintbackup should be dropped, and mintBackup should be renamed mintbackup

Does this affect any of the current releases (Maya, Nadia or Petra)? If not, this bug should be closed

In Linux Mint 17, I can confirm the existance of both
/usr/bin/mintbackup and /usr/bin/mintBackup

I cannot reproduce the OP's problem.

Furthermore, it doesn't make sense that mintBackup (with capital) would do anything different because the contents of mintBackup is


and doesn't forward any arguments to /usr/bin/mintbackup.
