#12 Updated by intrigeri over 3 years ago
Using Tails Installer (#8812) could be considered as a third alternative as the GUI would be minimal and orders of magnitude simplier than if we want to write our own GUI on top of whatever backend we prefer.
I'm probably misunderstanding what you mean with "orders of magnitude simplier", so you might want to clarify (if/whenever you feel it's worth it).

- Target version changed from Tails_3.8 to Tails_3.9
- Type of work changed from Wait to Research
Tails Installer is being deprecated so I don't think it's the way forward either.
I've now tested every possible graphical backup application for Linux, inside and outside Debian and I don't think that any existing interface would work for us, especially given the complex permissions setting of Tails.
I'm quite convinced now that writing our own interface, well integrated in Tails, is the way forward. But we could rely on existing backends.
Next I'll write a comparison of backends but I won't investigate graphical interfaces further myself.
- Status changed from Confirmed to Rejected
- Assignee deleted (
I updated the blueprint with my latest plans. I don't think that we can choose "a backup solution among possible candidates" so I'll reject this ticket.
But feel free to reopen it and prove me wrong!
