Utility for tracking stolen computers
  10 reviews

Prey is a lightweight program to help track and recover a stolen laptop.

It comprises a shell script which calls out on a regular basis to either a server run by the Prey project, or a URL defined by the system administrator. A graphical configuration tool is also provided in order to maintain the simple config file.

Hope I'll never need it but it's great to have it installed. Download the current version from Prey's site, the .deb for Ubuntu works fine with LMDE.

Downloaded the Ubuntu installer off the preyproject web site. Opened with archive mgr and installed. Got caution that an older more stable version is available through pckg manager. Ignored, installed, works great!

Must run sudo apt-get -f install in terminal for the package to install properly in mint14 cin. It seems the installer doesn't automatically install dependent packages.
