Does this actually require cronie specifically? If not, it should depend on the generic cron instead, to allow users to install different cron implementations.

patch is also part of base-devel. Try pacman -S base-devel.

I'm getting this error:

Yes, my mistake

@yoboroda: make is part of the base-devel group which you should already have installed for using the AUR.

I just did clean arch install and get error while install timeshift due to abscent command make. I think because recent "base" meta package thing "make" is not installed on any pc by default. So I installed "make" package and it works. And I suggest to add it to dependencies.

I've just installed timeshift, but the launcher does not recognize the interactive session and tries to modify env to call a new graphic environment. Does this happen to you too?

@BPowell1999 - I proposed a patch (just below) that corrects this

I was just able to install this successfully. What I did:

  • Download the snapshot here and extract it
  • Run "makepkg -s" from the extracted directory to satisfy dependancies. Let it error out
  • Clone the official git repo
  • Run "nano ./src/Utility/AsyncTask.vala" and scroll down
  • Replace "public AsyncTask" with "protected AsyncTask" save & exit
  • Run "make" and "sudo make install"

I've come up with a patch to get this to build on Arch systems, until the actual developer fixes the issue with the code.

Here is the changes with the PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO files:

And here is the patch file to fix the code (which needs to be added to the git repo for this PKGBUILD):
