Manjaro just added it to its Comminity packages.

I was receiving an error when the package tries to install vala .26 when installing without first having Vala installed:

./ line 10: valac: command not found
**Error**: You must have valac >= 0.12.0 installed
to build vala.

Interestingly, first installing vala 0.36 (which automatically gets removed by the script and replaced with vala .26) allowed timeshift to be installed perfectly.

there's easy but not so elegant way to install it by using another repo.

First I reused the PKGBUILD from vala0.26 (AUR package) and updated the package version to 0.34.8.
Then successfully built and installed vala0.34.8 package using makepkg -sci on modified PKGBUILD.

Thereafter i modified PKGBUILD for timeshift during package update. Changed makedepends array as follows to successfully build and install timeshift 17.2-2

makedepends=('vala' 'diffutils' 'coreutils' 'vte3')

Why i Did this:
Timeshift version 17.2 in Ubuntu PPA refers to Vala PPA with 0.34.8 as recommended version.

For now I've switched to vala0.26. I could use 'vala<0.35' but then none of the AUR helpers would know what to do.

Could this be fixed?

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.
