Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

While not CloneZilla specifically, my GRUB has several entries to boot a number of file system images, so I guess you can count me. It's a very useful feature of GRUB. Your way of drawing conclusions from premises is... interesting. You don't have Clonezilla between your ISO images to boot to there...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

IMHO, documentation that is lacking is not a product of lack of time but lack of understanding of its importance in creating something of quality the author wants. [...] For software that may run as "root" and that deals with vital components (like the root filesystem) the standards of qu...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

We even specifically forked Mint's version of Timeshift That's good to know. If the author is seriously committed to his job, as he seems to be, would it be possible to raise some money for him, in some not-too-conspicuous way? But this is surely not a matter for discussion here. Since we already d...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

Entitled much? Be happy you get the program for free at all, nobody is under any obligation to write a free operating system and supporting software for you, nor the documentation for it. Be happy so many enthusiasts spend parts of their free time letting you profit of their work for free already. ...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

I read that the author of Timeshift only recently decided that his income from donations was insufficient and henceforth would be charging for it. You can't blame Mint for that if it happened after you installed Timeshift. Thank you, I am actually very happy with Mint. For a time I have been disapp...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

So does that mean I would clone both sda1 and sda2? That's OK, you have an EFI partition in /dev/sda1 and a Linux partition in /dev/sda2. It's better to make images of both: it's always good to have a copy of the boot partition, parts of the grub and connected files are in it and the image is quite...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

@mchandler How difficult is it to restore a cloned image using Clonezilla if I've borked my system and just want to return to a known, working state? This is actually Clonezilla's main use. You install Clonezilla to a flash card or a DVD then you power off and reboot from Clonezilla's medium. Clonez...

Re: Timeshift: should these patterns be excluded in snapshots?

I installed Mint 19.1 Tessa two weeks ago, in dual boot with Lubuntu. I have been using several Linux distributions for some 20 years and I am very happy with Mint, especially because it is solid and all the subsequent installing went incredibly smooth (HP network printer, Virtualbox, Dropbox etc.)....
