SAILFISH - borg backup

less than 1 minute read


This is a HowTo for installing & setting up borg backup on a Sailfish device. (in my case: a Sony Xperia XA2 )


  • wget should be installed on the sailfish device
  • alternative: download the binary to the PC and copy it to the Sailfish device

Do it

login on your sailfish device via ssh (must be activated in the settings)

ssh nemo@<SOME-IP-ADDRESS>
# download binary
devel-su wget -O /usr/local/bin/borg

# make the binary executable
devel-su chmod +x /usr/local/bin/borg

# run it
