Cannot Get Gnome Schedule To Work

Postby fullmoonguru » Tue Feb 05, 2013 3:47 pm

Does it not work in Mate? I get this in the term when I try a test run from gnome schedule as root:

"Gnome-Message: gnome_execute_async_with_env_fds: returning -1"

If it doesn't work in Mate, is there a Mate alternative?

Actually I think this is a cron problem. I see that gnome-schedule has entered the job in cron but it still doesn't work. I have set up a simple script just to open a dialog window for testing. Works when running from the terminal. Here's the line in crontab:

* * * * * /usr/bin/autoshutdown2 # JOB_ID_4

Should be running every minute but it's not.

I realize that this thread is really old, but did you ever find a solution for this? I'm having exactly the same problem and can't find any other reference to it anywhere.
