sudo dpkg -i anydesk_6.1.1-1_armhf.deb sudo apt-get install -f

sudo apt install libminizip1 libegl1-mesa

Back up your google drive cloud storage to local HDD daily.
rclone utility is a great way to deal with this task. All instructions worked like a charm. Scheduling is done using crontab.
sudo crontab -e
![0 6 * * /sbin/shutdown -r now 0 3 * * sh ~/backup_from_drive.sh
It means, that Raspberry Pi reboots each morning at 6:00; and backs up each night at 3:00.](https://merkulov.top/Other/Notes/My_raspberry_PI_home_setup/Screenshot_2022-05-29_at_16.24.11.png)
![rclone sync remote_macbook: /media/pi/HDD/Backups/drive_macbook -P
Backup script could include several folders, cloud providers or some logging utilities.](https://merkulov.top/Other/Notes/My_raspberry_PI_home_setup/Screenshot_2022-05-29_at_16.23.18.png)
Now it’s super easy 😀:
curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com -o get-docker.sh sudo sh get-docker.sh pip install docker compose
