Timeshift-gtk dumps core

Hello friends, after today’s unstable updates, Timeshift-gtk is dumping its core when trying to restore previous backup. I suspect it is the update on glib2 that’s causing it. Never had any problem with it until today. The CLI version of Timeshift works fine…

After downgrading glib2 to previous version 1.73-3, Timeshift-gtk is working again ! :slight_smile:
Maybe Timeshift needs to be rebuild against the new glib2-library ?

I cannot confirm this issue in the Unstable branch, at least.

You mean 2.73-3, I presume?

Yes, version 2.73-3 indeed ! Sorry for the typo… :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

I confirm this issue in testing branch. I got a core dump on snapshot creation. Downgrading glib2 from 2.74.0-1 to 2.72.3-3 helps.

And I don’t know where you see 2.73-3, I see only 2.72.3-3 :thinking:

I tried to rebuild it myself from AUR, but without success, the same core dump.

Unstable and Testing seems to be at 2.74.0-1 now.

At my age, my short time memory kinda sucks, so it seems :wink:

[eddy@imac ~]$ pamac info glib2
Naam                         : glib2
Versie                       : 2.72.3-3
Omschrijving                 : Low level core library

For the moment, I held back the upgrade to 2.74.0-1…


Does this fix the issue?

No, 2.74.0-1 causes the issue !

I’m assuming not for everyone cause I just did a backup without any issues.

confirm, wanted to create a snapshot it crashed … im on testing branch

I don’t know how I managed to miss the point that this was about the GUI :person_facepalming:
Yes, I also get core dumps if I try to create or restore snapshot via GUI. CLI is working fine.

I see no issues open at Timeshift’s issue tracker, if this even is an issue for them to fix.

timeshift is a manjaro specific custom package. it depends on libgee which in turn depends on glib2. a recompiling of the timeshift package maybe necessary. @Yochanan please advise


I can’t reproduce it on two machines on the unstable branch. I rebuilt it, anyway. Try 22.06.5-2 coming along shortly.

If this is another issue with C locale on another package, I swear :rofl:

Didn’t help, unfortunately.

Nope, same crash… :frowning:

Have to ask how often are any of us actually in the GUI for Timeshift? I apologize if I have this wrong but doing updates via the Terminal and having auto-snap create a snapshot or manually running Timeshift from the Terminal and creating a snapshot still works fine, and those snapshots can be used from grub or the live environment without issue, right? To me not being able to use the GUI short term isn’t a big deal.
