Task scheduler/manager

Post by daneel » Thu Aug 15, 2019 2:22 pm

Hello,

i would want to use a graphic sotware to manage crontab.

I've read that gnome-schedule isn't available anymore in deposits but it should be possible to install the old ones with python dependancies but i find it's a pity to use 150 Mio dependencies to do it (https://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/gnome-schedule) !

What do you suggest ? Timeshift is no use.

What exactly do you want to do with crontab?

I tried to use it to automate some tasks and was quite frustrated.

My tasks were simple:

Open a website, log in, open OBS Studio to automatically record a seminar for 2 hours.

I created a script to do just that but couldn't get it to run automatically at the day and time I needed.

I finally found Alarm Clock in the Software Manager and it works perfectly.

Maybe that will work for you, too.

Hope this helps.

Some back-up...

The PPA ppa:franzg/when-command doesn't offer when-command for my version : "E: Impossible de trouver le paquet when-command"

Installing when-command-opt-0.9.13.beta.1.deb doesn't make available to launch when-command, even by command line... Nothing happens.
