@abhaypatil2000: The upstream fixes are included now.

The patch thing didn't work for me. So I just changed the commit in PKGBUILD to 'efed1177e3951e333ad3f30a86612b39b6a27ce3' as this is the latest commit while writing the answer, in line 19. It was '08d0e5912b617009f2f0fdb61fb4173cb3576ed4' in the original PKGBUILD.

In the latest commit, the above patch is already included in the original code.

Also, comment out the line 35.

After these changes, things worked perfectly for me. You could make the following changes in the PKGBUILD yourself.

Thanks for the quick fix on that!

@AliceMk: Thanks for the heads up, I added the patch.

Due to the upgrade of util-linux 2.36.2 to 2.37.1 there is a patch needed for timeshift to be able to read the filesystem again. It can be found here">

I agree, I think keeping the GUI sudo helpers out of this package makes sense. I think my issue arises from the fact that the timeshift-launcher app that comes bundled from upstream does not play well with rofi/dmenu - It doesnt automatically adjust for being run outside of a shell environment - I had to edit the .desktop file and add Exec=sudo -A timeshift-gtk to get it to work.

@zarakshR: I agree about btrfs-progs, but x11-ssh-askpass is not directly related to TimeShift.

In fact, I use GNOME's polkit agent (inside a Sway environment) and it does the job too...

@zarakshR: I agree about btrfs-progs, but x11-ssh-askpass is not directly related to TimeShift. Perhaps it should be an optional dependency for something else on your system.

Please add btrfs-progs and ssh-askpass as optional dependencies

btrfs-progs - timeshift can run without it installed, only BTRFS functionality is not available

ssh-askpass - timeshift-gtk cannot be run from rofi/dmenu (and possibly other desktop managers) without a GUI askpass system installed on the system

When I build the latest version I get the warning:

WARNING: Package contains reference to $srcdir

Is that something to worry about?
