SD Card Copier program, where is it located in the archive?

Mon Jul 15, 2019 11:47 pm

Hello!

The SD Card Copier program, where is it located in the archive? I've been digging through:
https://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/pool/main/
and looked in my raspbian in /var/cache/apt/archives

I love this program because it can take a live running Linux os like raspbian and clone it out to a fully bootable backup. one shot, one kill.

A. is there a .deb file for this utility so i can use it in another os on my pi like kali?

B. would it work the same in another Debian os getting everything?

thanks

Description: SD Card backup program for Raspberry Pi
This is a GTK application to copy the contents of SD cards and other USB
drives. It mirrors the partition layout of the source device onto the
target device, with the exception of the last partition, which is created
to be the largest which will fit onto the target device.
Files are then copied between all partitions - the result should be a
bootable card with an image of the source device.

You might want to review the desktop entry. In the command field there is a call to a .sh shell script among other things.
Right click on [SD Card Copier] in the menu and choose [Properties]

raspi-config only works in Raspbian.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

i did get raspi-config to work just fine in kali, are you telling me from experience that there is going to be a nasty surprise in one of the menus that i don't know about???
and then, there is this, an even further tweak to raspi-config for kali users:
https://github.com/Re4son/RPi-Tweaks/tr ... ipi-config

the sd card copier worked but with issues, it did copy to a sd card while running in a live system, and it did boot the copy but it went straight to command line and then startx rendered a wierd cutout version of desktop with no text or icons...
I'm going to check out trying to find the shell script you mentioned.
