Timeshift autosnap is missing .conf file in etc/Timeshif folder. the conf. file is called skipRsyncAutosnap? Tryed to reinstall. Tryed the version in AUR? Thank you!
The directory where the configurations are seems to be
$ l /etc/timeshift drwxr-xr-x root root 4.0 KB Mon Oct 17 09:49:48 2022 . drwxr-xr-x root root 12 KB Fri Oct 21 12:23:49 2022 .. .rw-r--r-- root root 548 B Sat Oct 15 19:48:47 2022 default.json .rw-r--r-- root root 1.1 KB Mon Oct 17 09:49:48 2022 timeshift.json
Also, if you want to reinstall timeshift and recreate all configuration files, the command, AFAIK, would be:
pamac reinstall timeshift --overwrite='*'
Hope this helps!
The file you’re looking for is
Not there @Yochanan ? thanks for your help.
Does not create a .conf file @Mirdarthos thanks for your solution thow.
If you’re after the
/etc/timeshift-autosnap.conf file, you’ll have to reinstall
pamac reinstall timeshift-autosnap-manjaro --overwrite='*'
Hope this helps!
Overwriting everything should never be done. In this case, I see no reason to use it at all.
Warning: Generally avoid using the
--overwriteswitch. See System maintenance#Avoid certain pacman commands.
In that case, if I understand it correctly, it should be:
pamac reinstall timeshift-autosnap-manjaro --overwrite='/etc/timeshift-autosnap.conf'
(That’s from how I understand it, though. Please correct me if I’m wrong.)
As far as I understand, the file is missing. There’s nothing to overwrite.
I mean in general now, in other cases as well.
Correct @Yochanan No .conf file with anyone of the autosnap downloads. Thanks
OK @Yochanan I learned something new. thanks
I agree; I will not use it. thanks @Yochanan Have a good day.
