Hey all, newish Manjaro user here, and consider myself between a beginner and Intermediate Linux user. But this particular issue is mind-boggling: I spent a decent chunk of yesterday–having quickly set up Timeshift schedule–trying to get it to make a snapshot. I managed to stumble upon a forum comment or two which stated that the cronie service/daemon wasn’t enabled and hence snapshots would not happen.
Wouldn’t it be easier enough to enable it out of the box, given that Timeshift is a bundled Manjaro s/w package?
Or if you really don’t want to enable cronie why not modify the Timeshift package to add a check to see if it’s enabled and something like a tick-box to then enable it?
I know Linux ain’t Windows, but why make it harder than it needs to be?
EDIT: just to confirm–once I enabled cronie it worked.
