Timeshift V17.10 is ready

unstable

#1

I have been uploaded Timeshift V17.10 stable release
Please since the position of config file is changed before install this version backup your existent config file and after installation and before launch timeshift move in the new position
so :

sudo mv /etc/timeshift.json /etc/timeshift.json.bkp
sudo pacman -S timeshift
sudo rm /etc/default/timeshift.json && sudo mv /etc/timeshift.json.bkp /etc/default/timeshift.json

Know issue :

I’m not able to open the GUI on Wayland . Please check if is a my issue ( already opened a report on github )

So to open in Wayland the GUI open a terminal and simply do timeshift-launcher

Check it as usual
Stefano


Add a default backup software to Manjaro
#2

Is it in testing or in unstable branch? I would like to give you the wayland feedback, but I only find “timeshift-dev” currently on testing (synced with netzspielplatz mirror)


#3

Unstable :wink:


#4
hk@hk-01:~$ timeshift-launcher 
localuser:root being added to access control list
[sudo] Passwort für hk: 

After supplying the root password for privilege escalation the GUI (Setup Wizard) opens.

While its running - and after closing it - getting to the main UI this is the output:

First run mode (config file not found)
Selected default snapshot type: RSYNC
App config loaded: /etc/timeshift.json
Selected default snapshot device: /dev/dm-0

App config saved: /etc/timeshift.json
App config saved: /etc/timeshift.json
localuser:root being removed from access control list
access control enabled, only authorized clients can connect
SI:localuser:hk

#5

Yep… so is a general problem… the dev add my workaround to open on wayland ( timeshift-dev) but now this not work; no sure but suspect wayland close again the restriction…


#6

its not working.

(gksu:2562): GTK-WARNING **: cannot open display: :1

#7

Yes the check if we use wayland session and the command in the fedora forum above are added into timeshift-launcher script but now not work…


#8

just done a fast google

This is an intentional design decision of wayland,

OK, to avoid the potential for misunderstood expectations: there are currently no plans to support running graphical apps with sudo under Wayland, and it seems quite unlikely that this will change anytime soon, so I’m going to close this as WONTFIX. The admin:// protocol mentioned by Ray is the way forward for applications that use gvfs to edit root-owned files. Other applications need to use polkit to move privileged operations out of process. This should really have happened many years ago, as polkit is no longer some new or mysterious technology.

#9

Hi, I do not know what (I guess its me) I did wrong on my system (gnome) so that Timeshift thinks that file browsing has to be done with audacious instead of nautilus.

Where ever the file broser should be opened (e.g. Browse button on the main interface) instead audacious opens and of course acts up as its loading way to many files that are no audio as well.


#10

I installed Timeshift and after this it do an analyze, it shows that needs 930 GB to backup. I don’t have such space in any of my disks. I am using RSync and my system is Manjaro Linux. Something is wrong, on my root (/) I have only 30,7 GB used. Not using any /home to backup.


#11

Did you by accident include /home directories? I use rsync as well from my root and I have 25 snapshots taking up almost no space at all currently on a 500GB ssd… where I only have that one / partition (except from swap)


#12

No, is marked, as come by default, no /home of any user.

I am including the log, for if I did something wrong:

I found the problem. I have a HD mounted on my root (/), just excluded it. Sorry for all this.


#14

Hey,

I quite cant get my head around Filters tab. I would like to backup whole / and /home/ without files and folders starting with . in my home. How do I do that?


#15

In the Filters window once you add a file and/or folder there is a ‘+’ and a ‘-’ column. Once your file/folder is added and you want to include it in your backup, choose the ‘+’ column radio button, conversely, if you want to exclude that then choose the ‘-’ radio button.

Just so we’re clear, by choosing ‘/’ (root) you are by default including your /home directory so to select /home seperately would be redundant, unless you plan on backing-up root (’/’) for one set of backups, then backing-up /home for another set?

Just navigate to ‘/’ (root) when you add a folder in the filter window and once it’s displayed in the window choose the ‘+’ radio button column, same for /home (I can’t recall, but this may be the default setting anyway, check the Filter window to see if it’s already populated).

To exclude all hidden files, this is not the most elegant way, but you must add them first to the filter window, then choose the ‘-’ column radio button to exclude them. (maybe that’s why it’s hard to wrap your mind around it - You have to add it to exclude it)

I think it works same as all sensible backup solutions, e.g. see https://web.stanford.edu/group/rdiff-backup/rdiff-backup.1.html#sect7
