I had a failure in the GUI today when restoring a snapshot.

I'll try to be as detailed as possible to help with reproduction.

  1. I created a temporary snapshot as I wanted to experiment with a new window manager and needed a safety net
  2. Installed fluxbox and xorg-xmessages
  3. Selected fluxbox as window manager in LXQt settings and rebooted
  4. Had immediate issues with the panel setup so opened timeshift
  5. Selected my temp snapshot and hit restore, I deselected the options to reinstall grub and rebuild the grub list (it wasn't neccasary for 2 small packages)
  6. Pressed "Next" on the disclaimer GUI and the app simply closed
  7. Restored via command line with no issues

Does this actually require cronie specifically? If not, it should depend on the generic cron instead, to allow users to install different cron implementations.

patch is also part of base-devel. Try pacman -S base-devel.

Yes, my mistake

@yoboroda: make is part of the base-devel group which you should already have installed for using the AUR.

I just did clean arch install and get error while install timeshift due to abscent command make. I think because recent "base" meta package thing "make" is not installed on any pc by default. So I installed "make" package and it works. And I suggest to add it to dependencies.

I've just installed timeshift, but the launcher does not recognize the interactive session and tries to modify env to call a new graphic environment. Does this happen to you too?

@BPowell1999 - I proposed a patch (just below) that corrects this

I was just able to install this successfully. What I did:

  • Download the snapshot here and extract it
  • Run "makepkg -s" from the extracted directory to satisfy dependancies. Let it error out
  • Clone the official git repo
  • Run "nano ./src/Utility/AsyncTask.vala" and scroll down
  • Replace "public AsyncTask" with "protected AsyncTask" save & exit
  • Run "make" and "sudo make install"
