i could not manage to find a way to check if Timeshift is currently running a backup in the background!
I would like to have like a “one-line-command” for console to check if there is currently a backup going on.
My background is, that i want to create a icon changing its color and to be notified if a backup started while using awesomeWM
A solution would be something like
systemctl --type=service | grep timeshift
- I know timeshift is ran via cron
- To trigger “timeshift” commands from console i need sudo → Not possible
Maybe someone does have a solution for me.
I dont know if
systemctl status cronie.service
gives some information about currently running updates
Thanks a lot
