deja-dup issue

Dear All,

I've take backup of my home on old Ubuntu-14.04, using /Déjà Dup/
a//front-end of |duplicity on external USB3 HDD, after I reinstalled
Ubuntu 16.04. After all installation done I tried to restore some files
in my home folder ( .thunderbird, .remina etc...) that file restored
successfully from the given list of files ...thats fine. But after 4 to
5 days I need some more files/folders which was on my desktop and in my
home folder on old Ubuntu, so I tried to restore that file using
Nautilus right-click option(Restore Missing Files..) to restore that
files and folders...

difference in number of files and directories ( from GUI and Command line )

I'm trying to find total numbers of files and directories in my home
folder using following two methods ... but the result is different in
both ways

properties )

first new email or reply to any received mail, thats ok , but after that
done successfully whenever I try send/reply to 2nd mail it does not ask
for password it simply sends the mail. I want to configure Thunderbird

How to disable "print to file" option

Dear all

is there any way to disable "print to file" printer in Ubuntu ???

actually problem is, I'm using my Ubuntu desktop to connect to the
Windows RDP server through rdesktop, everything work fine including
local dot matrix printers as well, but rdesktop also redirects the
"print to file printer " to the RDP session which becomes default
printer every time. I don't want to redirect print to file printer to
RDP. is there any solution for this ??

Thanks in advance

Warm Regards
