Installers Updated

The installers for Aptik, Timeshift, Conky Manager and Selene have been updated.

The installers can now be used any Linux distribution based on the 3 major Linux families:
1) Debian (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc)
2) RedHat (Fedora, CentOS)
3) ArchLinux (Manjaro, etc)


The following issues were fixed:

Missing 'sudo'

The 'sudo' command is not available on all distros. Some distros have only 'su'. The new installers will prompt the user using 'sudo' or 'su' (depending on what's available).

Missing Shortcuts

The shortcuts in the application menu were missing for Timeshift on Fedora. This is fixed.

Issues on Fedora 20

The script had some issues on Fedora 20. Running the installer as root worked as expected, but running it with 'sudo' would prevent the user from logging in to the system. This issue is fixed. The new installers use the 'install' command to set file permissions instead of using 'cp'.

Dependency Packages

The previous install script only copied files to the system directories. Dependency packages were not installed. The new installers will check the type of distribution (Debian/RedHat/ArchLinux) and use the corresponding package manager (apt-get/yum/pacman) to install required packages.


Uninstallers are now available for all applications. For example, the commands 'aptik-uninstall', 'conky-manager-uninstall', 'timeshift-uninstall' and 'selene-uninstall' will uninstall the corresponding applications. 'timeshift-uninstall' will prompt the user if they want to delete the timeshift backups on their system to free up disk space.


Terminal messages will be displayed in color which makes the output more readable.


Installers have been tested on following distributions:

  • Fedora 20
  • Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04
  • Manjaro 0.8.7
  • Elementary OS Luna 0.2


Installers can be downloaded from following links:

    micha@localhost Downloads$ conky-manager
    [18:55:31] Error: Commands listed below are not available:

    * import

    Please install required packages and try running it again

    1. Did you get any errors when you ran the installer?

  5. Hi. I'm very interested in Timeshift.
    (Oh, first of all, I'm sorry for my poor english)

    I want to use timeshift, but when I tried to run it on terminal, this message shows up and timeshift doesn't work.
    ( Run in x windows with gnome3 interface also doesn't work. )

    timeshift: symbol lookup error: /usr/share/timeshift/libs/ undefined symbol: g_type_class_adjust_private_offset

    I am using CentOS 7.1 and used this post's Timeshift installer. There was no error while installing.

    Package rsync-3.0.9-15.el7.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do
    Package libgee-0.10.1-3.el7.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do
    Package json-glib-0.16.0-3.el7.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do

    I think dependencies are all good. Do you have any idea?

    Plz help!!
