    Default QQ: Graphical editing of cron jobs

    Quick Question: Does a graphical solution exist on/for OpenSuse to edit cron jobs easily? If so, which do you recommend?

    i know of none in the openSUSE repos...wait:

    use YaST and search on cron....here i see a kde4-kcron (a "cron job
    configuration tool .... KCron allo2ws you to change your cron jobs setup."

    maybe it works, maybe not (i use, and would recommend something like
    kate or kwrite launched with root powers [kdesu kwrite])

    google turns up several potentials with a search on "crontab manager"
    i've not looked at any of them..[before you could get one installed
    you could be done with kate/etc, but ymmv]

    Gedit in Gnome and Kwrite in KDE are great graphical editors, I use them to adjust the crontable. If you don't use KDE or Gnome, Leafpad is a great graphical editor too.

    Thanks for replying. KWRITE is the simple solution, KCron the most comfortable.

    Hiya,

    There's a webmin module for controlling cron jobs that I like.
