Timeshift v19.08

Timeshift v19.08 is now available.

What’s New

New PPA

There’s a new PPA available for Timeshift. This is a dedicated PPA that contains packages only for Timeshift.

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/timeshift
sudo apt update
sudo apt install timeshift

The previous PPA ppa:teejee2008/ppa continues to be available, for people who are still using it.

Sparse file handling

Rsync snapshots are now created with the --sparse option. This is a little slower but handles sparse files correctly.

Package manager cache

Package manager caches are now excluded by default for rsync snapshots.

/var/cache/apt/archives/*
/var/cache/pacman/pkg/*
/var/cache/yum/*
/var/cache/dnf/*
/var/cache/eopkg/*
/var/cache/xbps/*
/var/cache/zypp/*
/var/cache/edb/*

Navigation buttons

The spacing was adjusted for navigation buttons at bottom of the Backup/Delete/Restore/Wizard windows.

  1. Under debian (linux mx) i cannot add an Ubuntu type ppa depository. Is there another way to install the latest timeshift 19.8 (19.1 now in use)

    1. You can add the PPA in Debian/MX after installing some packages.
      sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
      After this you can use the add-apt-repository command. It will create a source list file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. Check this file and change the debian version (“stretch” or “buster”) to “bionic”.
      You can also create the source list manually and import the public key.
