good backup software for linux with GUI?


Does someone know about a good backup program for linux that has a nice GUI frontend? There is a lot of backup programs, but it seems to eiher be for business/enterprise or just command-line based. I just want a simple backup programs with a GUI that works good. Is there anyone who can suggest such a program ?

TimeVault is still in beta, but seems to be mostly complete and reasonably stable.

Thanks for the answer. Im running GNOME, but im running Fedora so im not able to install the .deb package. I downloaded the tarball and tried using the install shell script that come with it, but i only get the following messages when executing it:
Installing to:
install: missing file operand
Try `install --help' for more information.
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 28: log_begin_msg: command not found
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 29: start-stop-daemon: command not found
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 29: log_end_msg: command not found
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 32: log_end_msg: command not found
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 21: log_begin_msg: command not found
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 22: start-stop-daemon: command not found
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 22: log_end_msg: command not found
/etc/init.d/timevault: line 24: log_end_msg: command not found
./ line 33: update-rc.d: command not found

I saw that the program installed some files in the /usr/bin directory anyway and i tried to launch the timevalut executable, but i got the following messages:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./timevault", line 33, in <module>
from TimeVault import snap
File "/usr/bin/TimeVault/", line 32, in <module>
import database
File "/usr/bin/TimeVault/", line 22, in <module>
from pysqlite2 import dbapi2 as sqlite
ImportError: No module named pysqlite2

I have python installed and python modules for fedora. I appericiate the reply, but it doesnt look very stable at all.
