I run both KDE and Gnome, and backintime-gnome was missing because of it. This is what I did (perhaps not very elegant):

## Build a custom array of depends based on what DE is installed
if [ `which kdeinit4 2> /dev/null` ]; then
depends=( ${depends[@]} 'xorg-utils' 'pyqt' 'kdebindings-python')
_type=( ${_type[@]} kde4 )

if [ `which gnome-session 2> /dev/null` ]; then
# Gnome
depends=( ${depends[@]} 'pygtk' 'python-notify' 'gnome-python' 'meld' )
_type=( ${_type[@]} gnome )
# Default to Gnome (less deps for users without KDE or Gnome)
depends=( ${depends[@]} 'pygtk' 'python-notify' 'gnome-python' 'meld' )
_type=( ${_type[@]} gnome )

backintime-gnome is now completely missing. (I use both KDE and Gnome)

I've updated the PKGBUILD to default to Gnome, so LXDE/XFCE/not-gnome-or-kde users should work now.

Please test and let me know if it still doesn't work.

Not very descriptive error I'm afraid...

$ makepkg -s

My box only has lxde on it so no kde/gnome stuff at all.

Do you have 'gnome-session' or 'kdeinit4' binaries? What errors do you get?

+1 can't build with LXDE

Out of GNOME/KDE ambient, makepkg doesn't work.
Editing makepkg and leaving just GTK (GNOME) dependencies, it bulds, and run, but no interface works.

I'm on LXDE.

If large Files (>3 GB) are backed up starting the Gnome GUI of backintime might result in an error.

This is a known bug: which can easily be fixed by changing "int" to "float" in /usr/share/backintime/gnome/ Line 212

211 # display name, relative path, icon_name, type (0 - directory, 1 - file), size (str), date, size (int)
212 self.store_folder_view = gtk.ListStore( str, str, str, int, str, str, float )

That will happen if you have both Gnome and KDE on your system, as it installs a .desktop file for each GUI (gtk and qt). You can force it to only build a GUI for your preferred environment (and therefore only install that .desktop file) by removing one of the IF blocks above build(). Remove the appropriate kdeinit4 or gnome-session block.
