Thread: Troubleshooting Task Scheduler Help Needed

    Default Troubleshooting Task Scheduler Help Needed

    Running 42.1 with KDE desktop my Task Scheduler, set to run every night while I sleep, appears to have stopped working. Only change I have made is that I now log out at the end of each day.
    The Task Scheduler runs correctly if I press "Run Now" button and the schedule is set

    Code:
    15 2 * * *
    which I think should be 02:15 hr every day.

    PATH variable is set to:-

    Code:
    /home/alastair/perl5/bin:/home/alastair/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/games:/usr/lib/mit/bin
    Where have I gone wrong please?

    If set as a user it only runs when that user is logged in. It needs to be set up as root to run when no user is logged
