Somehow the .desktop for the "root" version of Backintime does not work for me. When I click the symbol from the applications menu, the mouse changes to the busy-icon but after a while it returns to normal with no application window appearing. Not even the prompt to enter my password appears.

But when I enter `pkexec backintime-qt4` into a terminal (which is the Exec= line in the "root" version .desktop), I am instantly presented with the password prompt and Backintime starts fine afterwards.

Why does this work from the terminal, but not from the GUI applications menu? Am I missing some settings somewhere? I'm on GNOME 3.18 from the standard repos.

Thanks a lot graysky. I can confirm that Aura works with 1.1.12-2.

@Simone - I honestly can't remember why I added the conflicts/provides arrays. Since they're so specific I'd like to think that I had a good reason. I just removed them and bumped to 1.1.12-2. Try your AUR wrapper.

I can confirm what Simone98RC said, Aura doesn't work either.

The required versioning equality between GUI and CLI version makes AUR wrappers like Pamac unable to do automatic updates (because a dependency is requiring the other one updated to same release).
Please prevent that by removing the versioning control, thanks much.

@DryEagle I experienced the same issues. It seems AUR helpers( yaourt in my case ) do not install the package properly. I downloaded the tarball and installed it manually just fine.

@aexoxea - Yes, good catch. But there is a problem currently with the test function, see:

Hi, should "test()" actually be "check()" in the PKGBUILD? Everything otherwise working fine with 1.1.12-1; thanks for maintaining!

@DryEagle - Can't reproduce on my system. How are you building it? If you're not using makepkg, use makepkg.

won't let me update because it has a dependency of backintime-cli 1.1.8 but it wants to overwrite it to install 1.1.12 and can't. had the same issue at 1.1.10 as well. please fix the pkgbuild
