Flatpak for 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.

Upstream has been contacted: Yes, and he is not interested in flatpak: https://github.com/teejee2008/timeshift/issues/305


Because it’s in the Fedora repos, I’ll look into building the flatpak for it this weekend. Could possibly be built with fedmod and rpm2flatpak

Registered here to request Timeshift!

So if the developer is apparently not interested in a flatpak, can it (will it?) still be done? Sorry i’m confused.

This would be very useful.

Would this work with BTRFS snapshots? Or just rsync? If using snapshots, it’s kind of defeats the purpose of flatpaking it, as you would end up giving it full system access to do anything.

Of course it works, I mainly use it for snapshots on Btrfs.
The only requirement to work is Ubuntu-style toplevel 5 subvolumes: @ and @home.
