[solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

I'm having trouble trying to install backintime from AUR.

I'm getting this error:

[ben@ben backintime]$ sudo pacman -U *.pkg*
loading packages...
resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: backintime-gnome and backintime-gtk are in conflict

Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: [solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

Ok, figured it out.  I'm used to installing packages with pacman -U *.pkg* which obviously won't work if there's multiple packages for gnome and kde.  Had to install the "any" package, then the KDE.

Re: [solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

piedro, what exactly are you trying to do, what commands did you use? What errrors are you getting?
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/backintime/ has 'any' as the architecture, because it works both for 32 and 64-bits.

You only need to install one of them... if running gnome use -gnome, if not, use -gtk. Look at the PKGBUILD, -gnome has more dependencies.

Re: [solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

thx, Karol!

I get your point. But when I use AUR to install the package "backintime" i get this error. I am not sure how to control that only "backintime-kde4" is installed or how to install "backintime" (probably the "-any"-package?) without getting this error. Do I have to edit the pkbuild file somehow?

Thx for your efforts,
piedro

p.s.: note that none of the mentioned packages is installed. "backintime" isn't present in any way atm ...

Since you didn't tell us what exactly you did, I can't help you.

Re: [solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

Sry:

yaourt -S backintime

gives me the described error
(when asked if I want to edit the PKBUILD file I answered "no" and left it untouched ...)

Re: [solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

@op - If you're using an AUR helper do not. 

1) Download the tarball
2) Extract it
3) cd into it
4) makepkg -src
5) Manually install the needed packages using pacman -U ...

Re: [solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

Thank youi very much!

This works. I had to "pacman -U backintime-1.0.28-6-any.pkg.tar.xz" and then after that I could install the correct frontend.
(in my case "pacman -U backintime-kde4-1.0.28-6-any.pkg.tar.xz")

that's it!

Re: [solved] Can't install backintime from AUR

All this is not necessary anymore - the "backintime" package from the AUR now doesn't need anymore specific gnome or kde packages...

thx, everyone
