[SOLVED] timeshift no opening (libxapp.so)

Hey everyone. I was using timeshift as backup tool, doing manual backups every week.
Today i update the system, (and the aur’s packages), but find out that time shift is no working propertly.
When opened it asked for the password(if correctly writed), it does no open the program.

I also tried opening it from the command line with

 sudo timeshift-gtk 

and get the error

 timeshift-gtk: error while loading shared libraries: libxapp.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

until now i have found that the folder that is asking for is in. https://www.archlinux.org/packages/comm … pps/files/  (but cannot install it like others aur’s packages, i believed is installed by default)

Any help will be appreciate. thanks a lot.

Re: [SOLVED] timeshift no opening (libxapp.so)

This is an AUR package. A better place to ask for help is its AUR web page.

P.S. - xapps is a dependency needed by timeshift but it is not an AUR package.

Re: [SOLVED] timeshift no opening (libxapp.so)

Why do you think xapps is "installed by default", or an AUR package? It seems like you aren't clear on the differences between the official repos and the AUR. Please read the following:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Of … positories
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ar … Repository
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg

Mod note: Moving to AUR Issues.

and i read the links and the packages are in the community repository(i read what it is) but still no clear if is active by default or anything else is needed in order to use( i read in another post that community even thought is no officially core is directly supported and update by pacman if it is the case i already executed

sudo pacman -Syuu

Re: [SOLVED] timeshift no opening (libxapp.so)

makepkg would warn you about missing dependencies. How did you build/install timeshift?

For your other questions, read again carefully the linkks given to you in post #3.
