Title: Aptik Backups Your Favorite PPAs/Themes And Icons/App Settings In Ubuntu/Linux M
Post by: MohdSohail on January 23, 2015, 07:07:12 am
Setting up everything after upgrading or re-installing OS is very time consuming. We don't know what PPAs we had added into our system or what applications we had installed. Don't bother now because you don't need to remember them all. Aptik backups them all.

Aptik is a backup tool to backup and re-store all your favorite PPAs, Applications, Applications settings and yeah themes too. After saving backup restore it when you install new operating system.

Creating backup of PPAs, applications and applications settings does not take much time and its too small to upload it on cloud storage. Although If you have installed so many themes then themes and icons backup may time some 2-3 minutes.

How to install Aptik


Code: [Select]
$ sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install aptik
