Timeshift GUI does not launch on Arch

I just installed timeshift on my laptop, which is running kernel 5.11.11-arch1-1.  In addition to installing timeshift I also ensured that I had the correct video driver for intel.  However, when I launch timeshift it prompts me to enter my password after which nothing happens.  I checked journalctl after the process failed and it tells me that I had a JS ERROR: TypeError: searchController is null and it also tells me that it received the following message in the log; Received error from D-Bus search provider org.gnome.Recipes.desktop during GetResultMetas: Gio.DBusError: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message recipient.  Does anyone know why I cannot launch timeshift?

Can you check with dmesg if you see anything obvious? Use

sudo dmesg --level=warn

to check for warnings and

sudo dmesg --level=err

to check for errors. I think I had this issue before being on Arch. I don't remember how I fixed it though.

I apologize in advance if some of my comments or replies don't make any sense. I am currently dealing with a bit of an alcohol problem, and I might be drunk at the time! Sorry and thank you for understanding!

Re: Timeshift GUI does not launch on Arch
