TimeShift from the command line?


I'm looking for a backup solution for Ubuntu -- primarily for system integrity, not data backup -- and the solution that looks best to me is TimeShift.

But I'm concerned that it uses a GUI. I know it has a command line interface too, but some of the descriptions I found seem to imply that the command line interface is just a way of starting it from a terminal window, and it still uses the GUI.

When I need to do a restore I may be in recovery mode because the desktop won't load. If the problem that requires a restore prevents me from running the program that does the restore, the program isn't useful to me.

What's the deal here? Can TimeShift run without a GUI environment?

There's an image of the available commands on this page:

Looks pretty good to me.
