Having some issues with snapper atm

You can, just change the cleanup timer to run more often.

would you be so kind and also tell me how to do that? It also seems like really valuable to add that to the gui, since that seems to be a real annoyance

sudo cp /usr/lib/systemd/system/snapper-cleanup.timer /etc/systemd/system/snapper-cleanup.timer

Then edit /etc/systemd/system/snapper-cleanup.timer and change this section:

[Timer]
OnBootSec=10m
OnUnitActiveSec=1d

to look like this:

[Timer]
OnCalendar=hourly
Persistent=true

Then save the file.

Then type:

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

sudo systemctl edit snapper-cleanup.timer
Cannot edit unit(s), no editor available. Please set either $SYSTEMD_EDITOR, $EDITOR or $VISUAL.
(editor) failed with exit status 1.

idk how to fix that

I actually changed the instructions to make it simpler. Try following the new instructions.
