Thanks a lot to icedaddy for not only reporting the problem upstream but actually pointing out the solution ( The proposed modification of works for me as well.

You probably want to report this upstream... I am just packaging.

I see the same issue as tamas. I backup over SSH and this error has occurred with me after the recent update of sshfs to 3.2.0. Downgrading sshfs (to 3.0.0) fixes the issue.

I get the following error message immediately after calling "backintime backup":

Anyone has any idea what is going on here and why the file "save_to_continue" is not created?

Thanks, that did it (although I'll miss the infinality fonts).

Ditch freetype2-inf:

@geo909: I do have this issue, too, for some applications. But it is releated to using an unofficial freetype2 and not related to backintime.

There are some bug reports like

After the last update, I'm having problems running the gui. Is it just me?

No need for the dependency, see:

binutils should be included into the makedepends, as strip is required (otherwise it fails).

Thanks for maintaining this!
