I'm new to Archlinux (I use it for about 16 hours) and want to install backintime to restore my old files. But I can't find backintime as a package. How can I install it (without configure and make manually)?

Ok, I solved the problem myself.

This is what I've done:

1) Go to http://aur.archlinux.org

2) Search for "backintime"

3) Click on the first link

4) Download tarball

5) unzip tarball archive

6) makepkg -s

7) pacman -U <*pkg.tar.xz>

That's all.1.2.
