Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PREF_CFLAGS
and PREF_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

There are a few packages you would need to install in order to compile deja-dup-14.2, and it would be doable. But, for F12, the much easier way is to download and install the F13 package of deja-dup-14.2. I just did this to see if was doable. Yes, it is.

wget -c http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/deja-dup/14.2/2.fc13/i686/deja-dup-14.2-2.fc13.i686.rpm
sudo yum --nogpgcheck localinstall deja-dup-14.2-2.fc13.i686.rpm

deja-dup.i686 0:14.2-2.fc13

Attempting to install the deja-dup package downloaded from another site resulted in missing dependency "duplicity", which I yum installed from the F12 repos (it dragged in another 4 packages for it's dependencies), but that package had an error with a corrupt file so I deleted it and grabbed the package from koji.

If you are using 64bit F12, just substitute the "i686" in the download url with "x86_64" to get the correct package to install.

Hi PabloTwo,
I tried the above to install the x86_64 version which seemed to go well. Under Applications/System Tools I have a listing for Deja-dup Backup Tool. When I run it I get the initial Restore and Backup selections but if I click on the backup it just disappears then nothing. I also tried to select Preferences with no response.

I just noticed the date of this post. Perhaps I am using an old version of the program.

Any suggestions?

I maintain Deja-dup for Fedora. Newer versions of Deja-dup have fixed a number of important bugs and I don't recommend using older versions but getting the newer version to build on Fedora 12 would be difficult due to the dependencies. Fedora 12 has already reached EOL and does not even receive security updates anymore and Fedora 13 is about to reach EOL as well. I recommend using Fedora 14 or Fedora 15 (about to be released in a couple of days) if you want to use deja-dup.

Fedora14 would be a better bet to use atm.. IMO
