Co-Maintainers wanted!

@librewish no longer uses Timeshift and I don't use BTRFS. If you would like to maintain the BTRFS parts that have been added to this package, please reply here.

If no one steps up soon, the BTRFS add-on items in this package may be removed.

@yochananmarqos in that case it must be an issue with xRDP or LXQt. I will install Arch on an actual PC instead of a headless server and find the source of the issue that way, likely an xRDP thing. Thanks for getting back to me.

@CosmicDan: It works fine for me. timeshift-launcher calls timeshift-gtk, the policy is correct.

Not sure if this is a bug or something specific to my setup, but the polkit policy seems wrong. exec.path points to /usr/bin/timeshift-gtk but the .desktop exec entry points to /sbin/timeshift-launcher. Rather than editing the policy though I just changed the desktop exec entry to pkexec /usr/bin/timeshift-gtk - now I get the prompt for elevation (which has the Timeshift icon and text as specified in the policy), and it launches OK.

Probably something weird about my setup - LXQt over xRDP - since I had to add the pkexec part. Without it, I simply get a GUI prompt that elevation is required. Note that I also had to do an xRDP hack to get polkit working, as explained here: https://github.com/neutrinolabs/xrdp/issues/1684 - I'm not an expert so please let me know if I should share this to the mentioned xRDP issue.

@duffydack: How is it complaining?

duffydack commented on 2022-11-09 19:43 (UTC)

As which was removed from base group, and timeshift complains without it, maybe it should be added as a dep. What do you think?

@robson: I've switched to the Linux Mint fork as advised by the original developer and will not switch back and forth. I've included the crash fix in 22.06.5-2.

It might be better to go back to the repo https://github.com/teejee2008/timeshift because as of now, teejee2008 fixed the bug related to glib2. And the people at Linux Mint don't care that Arch Linux has problems because they focus on their own distribution.

There are bugs in the operation of the program. First, it stopped showing the remaining time, just three question marks. Now the GUI crashes when copying and deleting, but the process itself on the system continues.

That's an issue with glibc. See https://github.com/linuxmint/timeshift/issues/66
