luckyBackup is a free backup application. It provides a GUI based on the cross-platform Qt framework and is not fundamentally console based or web based as many of the clients from the list of backup software are. It shares the data differencing and copying tool, rsync, with BackupPC, and several others. It runs on any Linux or Unix based system which provides Qt libraries and rsync. The GUI is translated in many languages and is available in repositories of all major Linux distributions including Debian, Ubuntu, openSUSE, Fedora, Mandriva, Arch, Slackware and Gentoo.
