OK, call me dense. I've been through the documentation a dozen times and I'm still not getting things to work properly. :( As the home page seems to be most kindly described as static, I'm hoping someone here might be able to tell me what stupid configuration mistake I've made. :oops:

I currently have two P4 systems that are shared between 6 people. There are two adults (one part time) and four kids (one part time). I'm syncing up the home directory between them. I hope to add a third amd64 PC to relieve some of the pressure for resources. However, before I do, I have to figure out how I managed to screw up automated file deletion. Right now, existing and new files are updated properly. Deleted files have to be manually deleted on each PC.

Anyhow, I have unison running from a root owned cron job on one:
Quote:

5 2 * * * /usr/bin/nice --adjustment=19 /usr/bin/unison -ui text -batch -force newer -times jps-home.prf

The top part of jps-home.prf looks like this:
Quote:

#
# Include the common variables
#
include common

#
# Set the variables necessary for running in batch mode
# force = newer
# times = true
owner = true
group = true
silent = true
#
# Set the Ignore variables for the home directories
#
....


common looks like this:
Quote:

# UI variables
contactquietly = true
auto = true

# Diff
diff = diff -y -W 79 --suppress-common-lines

# Ignore variables
...
# log actions to the terminal
log = true


Can anyone see what I did wrong?

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads, please don't crosspost. If you want a topic moved to a different forum then report it and one of the moderators will move it for you. Follow ups to this topic: Struggling with unison.
