backup when idle is a python script developed by Yuri Vidal that runs luckybackup when the gnome screensaver is activated.

It will only work under Gnome, and depends on the gnome-screensaver.


  1. Download the script
  2. Open it with a text editor and change line 41 by replacing "default" with the name of the profile you wish to run
  3. Run the script by issuing the command "python", or set it to run on logon (sugested)
