Is there any way of restoring a timeshift backup from the terminal?
You have some functionality with Timeshift on command line. Run

Code: Select all

timeshift --help
to see options.

Re: [OPEN] Slimjet browser

I succesfully installed it, but it doesnt want to run, nothing happens. :( Same thing happens here if I just choose from app menu. However, if you open terminal and type "flashpeak-slimjet", it brings up a dialog to use either "sudo", "su", or no sandboxing option. I selected "sudo", it asked for m...

Re: [OPEN] Trouble With Pamac

If this is still unresolved, I would suggest cleaning the cache as a general idea: in pamac, go to Preferences then go to the Cache tab and there is an option to clean the cache. You can also run some things from the command line, which might yield some output that might prove helpful: pamac clean o...

Re: G'day from Australia

Hey Vince . . . I recognize your name from BDLL and DL! Excellent post, and I echo your sentiment about finding my Linux home in Arcolinux (I came here from Antergos Linux when it ended). I have learned more and am happier since finding Arcolinux than any time in my Linux journey. So to Erik and eve...

Re: [OPEN]pamac-aur shows 1 update remains to update for dxvk-bin

A follow-up to a reply I just made (which I'm leaving up in case it is able to help someone with a similar problem). Your issue with dvxk-bin duplicates here as well on command line and in pamac. In this case, it appears to be a change in versioning with no actual change in the software build (versi...

Re: [OPEN]pamac-aur shows 1 update remains to update for dxvk-bin

Hello papanyopaysa . . . I have also had the false positive of certain packages (including variants of dxvk) flagging in pamac. It seems that sometimes (though not all) this occurs in software that have been installed/updated via pamac as opposed to command line utilities. One solution that has work...

Re: [OPEN] ArcoLinux Version LTS

Hey goltrek . . . "LTS" means it is using the "long term support" kernel instead of the newest one. It helps people with some hardware be able to run Arcolinux if the regular kernel doesn't work. There are "LTS" versions of all the iso's built in July. Hope that's helpful.

Re: Hello ArcoLinux Guys

Welcome to Arcolinux! I also migrated to Arco from Antergos a few months ago, and so far, I've enjoyed Linux more and learned more than I ever did in 15 years of using Linux before. Re the wallpaper: as others said before, Variety is what is used. If you don't like it, you can always uninstall it. I...

Re: How can I chang the swappiness?

Hello philotux . . . Your topic is my first introduction to the concept of "swappiness". In the Arch Wiki article on "swap", their prescription for adjusting swappiness is a little different than what you wrote that you did. Instead of creating/editing a file /etc/systctl.conf, the Arch Wiki suggest...

Re: [OPEN] Dual boot: Arco's grub doesn't recognize other distro

Losgann . . . I have a suggestion (applicable only if you have a system with UEFI): as your computer is going through its initial pre-boot process (before any GRUB menu comes up), there should be a way to access a menu typically labeled "Boot Options" (on my system it's F12 but sometimes it's F2 or ...
