comment GNU/Linux: automatic cloning of a system with partitions encrypted with LUKS+dm-crypt
Thanks. I already backup important files to archives, and I will see how I could improve my procedure by using Duplicity. Anyway, maybe my question is malformed. Sorry but I am not an expert. At the highest abstraction level, I would just like to be up and running as quickly as possible after a HDD failure, with a system that is as close as possible to the original system, all by using an automatic procedure. I have read everything that I have found about backups but I have yet to understand how sysadmins have solved what looks like a recurring problem for laptop owners.

comment Gnome: forcing an application to start on top
@Anko: Sorry. Yes, I am using the default window manager. No, as far as I can see, other programs are not setting "always on top" hints. However, I have noticed that Thunar is a Xfce application: maybe this causes the problem.

@Anko: Thanks. Apparently only Thunar behaves like this. I have updated my question.

Thank you very much for your detailed answer -- I have up-voted it -- but I asked explicitly for a ready-made solution because I would rather avoid tinkering with scripts for such a critical task. I thought that backing up an encrypted GNU/Linux system was a solved problem, but it seems that I was mistaken.
