timeshift has recently moved to a new home managed under linux mint: GitHub - linuxmint/timeshift: System restore tool for Linux. Creates filesystem snapshots using rsync+hardlinks, or BTRFS snapshots. Supports scheduled snapshots, multiple backup levels, and exclude filters. Snapshots can be restored while system is running or from Live CD/USB..
development seems to be picking up again, latest version there is 22.11.2 which supposedly fixes the GUI crashes that have been happening in Fedora sine F35
(Reddit - Dive into anything)
installation instructions for Fedora are still the same (dnf) but the fedora repos are still on 21.09.1 (ie buggy). https://fedora.pkgs.org/36/fedora-x86_64/timeshift-21.09.1-1.fc36.x86_64.rpm.html
is there any way to set things so dnf updates to the latest version (ie not the fedora version).
I know i can compile from source but thats a PITA and too hard for others in my family. it’d be great to for this rto finally just work properly again, and be able to restore images without using an ubuntu liveUSB
Inb4 'just use snapper ': No, i hate it. the UX is appalling, impossible to explain to the rest of the family and it’s always buggy anyway, ive never got it to restore a snapshot successfully. also we’re all set up using ext4 because i dont trust btrfs (also super buggy) and timeshift is just way simpler and easier our needs, it’s what we’re used to
