If you are using manjaro it seems that they forked timeshift-autosnap and added skipRsyncAutosnap parameter

sorry, my fault. it works. it hits when an update is installed.

i thought it will also work when i manually install a package.

I am using it on Manjaro and it work fine. Also script doesn't rely on repos but on pacman hooks to identify when package is getting upgraded. Can you send me output of upgrade command you are running?

hi. unfortunetly the script is somehow broken. it works with pamac and AUR. but with pamac and manjaro repositories or pacman and manjaro repositories it does nothing.

i got a fresh manjaro install with btrfs. @/ @home @var-cache @swap. thanks.

I am using Pamac and indeed it creates another backup when AUR packages are present. For example if there are 50 packages from repos to update + 6 from AUR in one go, it will create at least 2 backups. 1 for updating the packages from repos, and another one for updating the AUR packages. At least that. I think at times it creates a new backup for every AUR package that needs upgrading.

Thanks! Didn't know about that.

Please refer to: Basically yay changed upgrade behavior, it builds aur package than installs it(upgrade). So with --combinedupgrade it will build all packages and then install them. Whitch means only one snapshot.

@gobonja I'm using yay ... is there another way to fix this? Yesterday I had like 17 updates through yay and it took forever with generating all those (in this case) unnecessary snapshots.

pacman makes no distinction between packages from repo and compiled a packages from aur. Are you using yay for upgrading packages or?
