So was able to compile it with vala0.26 from the aur, in the PKGBUILD inside the makedepends array just change "vala" to "vala0.26". It will ask to replace regular vala since they are conflicting, just say yes, after everything is built you can reinstall the regular vala package again and still run timeshift, since it's only a build dependency...

Yeah, meantime, let's wait for the author to fix it, unless someone understands the issue and is able to provide a patch.

Post an issue to the author and see if they will make it vala 0.36 compatible.

So how to compile it?
With vala 0.36.3 it fails

It builds with vala-0.34.6-1

The same problem Pumba and Kaveiros have. Can't install at all.

Same problem with same message as Pumba described.

seems invalid sha256sum for timeshift_v17.2_r429.tgz, works after changing PKGBUILD:

Install Debian to a spare machine from the junk box. Install timeshift. If the check box problem is there too then you report to the developer. If not then look for differences between Arch and Debian.
