some how snapper tools got screwed up so I uninstalled it. I reinstalled it later on but now it just shows a blank page on opening-no snapshots at all - I have about 40. If I boot into a snapshot it asks if I want to restore but does nothing. What's wrong??

first of all; I'm sorry, but this might be one of the worst forums posts I've seen in here.

Please. Instead of posting the template, and adding the contents to a comment, edit the post and enclose the garuda-inxi in ~~~. Finally, delete the comment and add a descriptive title (the latter is something I should do more often too)

Anyways, please provide some screenshots.

What do you mean with "nothing happens"?


Did we need screenshots from nothing?


So, snapper use different path?
Check your drives with btrfs.


Please try

update remote reset-snapper

This will delete your old snapshots, but should hopefully restore the functionality.

If the reset above doesn't work, make sure you reinstalled the package snapper-support, which includes also the template and all.

Sorry about making the worst post--I'm a newbie to this forum and thought I was posting what I should. Nothing happens means just that -- if I click restore when asked if I want to it closes without prompt to reboot and does not restore the snapshot. I uninstalled it because it stopped restoring snapshots (but at least then it would show my snapshots when I opened it). Then on reinstall this happened.

what is the output of sudo btrfs subvolume list /

@.snapshots, that seems different. Did you create that?

Unfortunately I've screwed around with this so much I'm not sure what I did. I'm fairly comfortable with Arch but not so much with snapper.

BTW I really appreciate your help.

I mean with the way it is setup now I can restore snapshots manually with no problem. I just have to do in the terminal rather that just select "restore"

What does findmnt --real show?

I believe that snapper-tools is made to work with Garuda's/snapper's default layout for the root config.

You have a custom setup here.

I don't think snapper-tools will work with that layout.

can you tell me how it should be for snapper tools to work?

Have you tried

update remote reset-snapper


Probably something like this:
Remove, @.snapshots from /etc/snapper
Unmount /.snapshots
rmdir /.snapshots
sudo btrfs subvolume create /.snapshots

You would need to create new snapshots for it to see them.

Given the non-standard layout that is being used here, are you sure that would be safe to run?

Ok, no, not sure, just disregard, sorry.

I'll try it. Safe be damned!

Of course it would be safe, it just wouldn't delete the volumes of the non standard layout. Those would have to be deleted manually to avoid space usage.
