Sorry, I switched to borg a while ago which kinda means I am looking for a new maintainer for this (both PKGBUILD and github repo). Would you be interested?

Interesting PKGBUILD. Bumped into it when searching for duplicity helpers and duply related stuff.

Very cool and usefull idea. I've seen many other related tools of this "backup to paper" concept using zbar etc.

However this PKGBUILD, mandatory dependency on "xpdf" forces me to install 100 Mega of qt5 stuff (and also evince).

So I decided not to install it.

Is this really absolutely necessary ? Cant other pdf related dependency be used as a more slimmer alternative ?

I wonder if you are still personally using this script ? And have interest in improving it ?

Could you also write a README on github, ? So that it can be installed to something like,


Right now the only instructions were "buried" as comments inside the bash script,

# Bash script to generate a PDF with structured QR code
# containing data needed to restore Duply backup.
# Requirements:
#  - duply (obviously)
#  - qrencode
#  - enscript
#  - ImageMagick (montage)
#  - zbar (zbarimg, zbar-tools package on Debian)
#  - ghostscript (ps2pdf)
#  - xpdf (pdftoppm, poppler-utils package on Debian)
#  - evince
#  - wipe

Thanks in advance
