Timeshift makes no snapshot automatically

Hello, Im from Austria and have been here for some weeks and I like EndeavourOS very much. The community is very friendly. :smile:
My problem is Timeshift doesn´t make a snapshot automatic at my device. I had no error messages in the programm! Maybe I look over something important.

Hi and welcome here!

I don’t know if you found the solution, but when you have Timeshift installed you should run these commands before going to the settings:

sudo systemctl enable cronie.service
sudo systemctl start cronie.service

Once that one is started, Timeshift runs the automatic settings.


crony is not enabled by default in our distri
