Garuda Assistant Testing - Round 2

it isn't ? in here it asks for root password everytime, and if I don't give it it just closes with a dialog box informing that needs elevated rights.

well, disregard my suggestion of using some kind of cache.... it will complicate things and possibly introduce bugs and etc. I feel I am not really helping anymore.

If I find an error or a crash I will say something. Fun fact .... doing btrfs snapshots for home saved me one file of python code I deleted by mistake !! :slight_smile: I think its the first time it happened !

I was checking my home snappers, and I noticed this:

notice that there is a snapshot at 10:00:14 and then at 10:01:01 ( and in other hours too ).

can this be related to systemd-timers and cronie being enabled at the same time ? I disabled cronie, lets see how it works in a few hours.

I fixed it locally. Next time I commit and push changes that will show up.

OK.

It creates a process as root but doesn't run the application as root. Unfortunately, a limitation of that process is that it can't be used asynchronously.

It could be.

it seems to be ... this hour only created one snapshot ( I disabled cronie and left systemd timers ).
maybe a check if both are running ? ( i didn't do anything to install and configure the timers on cronie , does snapper install both ?)

Apparently it does:

snapper /etc/conf.d/snapper
snapper /etc/cron.daily/snapper
snapper /etc/cron.hourly/snapper

Just FYI enabling qgroups on some systems negatively impacts performance. I keep it disabled on my system to help prevent stutters/freezes.

I removed the cancel button and changed the text on the button at the top. Hopefully that will make that part more obvious.

@ dalto
is it intentional that only 1 snapshot can be deleted ? if i select many snapshoots its only delete one . So if i want delete 10 i must one by one

PS: great work :+1:

Yes.

I never considered that you could select more than one item. I am on my phone right now but I will look at it tomorrow and see how hard it is to handle multiple deletions.

just checked on a new garuda assistant update:

thanks, its better, I think that if I didn't knew, I would understand that the top row/section does the "canceling and the save".

Thanks @dalto, good work !

hblock check box isn't working

Works fine here. It takes a long time though and shows no status. I should probably use a terminal for that so you can see progress.

well it doesn't work here even though I get the dialog about it succeeding
I don't see anything changing in /etc/hosts

Do you have hblock installed?

I just pushed the change to make it run in a terminal. See if you get an error in the terminal.

Works great .. :+1: thx for add it
