Timeshift is not making scheduled snapshots, I set it to make daily snapshots and it does not do them, I checked /etc/cron.d/ and all I found was "timeshift-hourly" I tried "crontab -l" and it just said that this user has no crontab. I have cronie installed (arch linux) is there some other dependency I am missing?
EDIT: I did realize timeshift always checks hourly to see when a snapshot is scheduled so that explains why there is only "timeshift-hourly". in the end though It is still not doing scheduled snapshots at all.
On my arch machines after some research I saw the schedules WERE being setup correctly, but the chron service wasn't enabled or running. As soon as I enabled it the scheduled snapshots started working. (I had installed from AUR.)
Once you start it the jobs in /etc/cron.d should start running.
