    Default Where is the at command in google-earth (pro)?

    Re this post https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...01#post2754201 from Malcolm Lewis:

    Now once installed it does create an at job, add a cron job in /etc/cron.daily and add it's own repository. I prefer to have none of these, so remove the at and cron jobs and remove the repo....
    Google Earth does not work anymore in Firefox, only Maps. Now it requires Chrome.
    I just installed GE Pro from their site - it seems there is no vanilla GE anymore, only the pro version available for download.

    It created an empty (1 byte) cron job in /etc/cron.daily that I deleted anyway, and disabled it's repo in Yast.

    Where do I find the "at" job? I suppose it would be a script somewhere (inside the cron job?), but there is nothing that looks like an "at" script in the installed files list, only the empty cron job.

    Thanks,

    Hi
    It's atq to see what's waiting and atrm job# if you don't have the 'at' package installed, it won't run anything, I always remove the cronjob and delete the google repo.

    Hi Malcolm,

    Code:
    :~> which at
    /usr/bin/at
    :~> atq
    :~>
    :~> atrm 1
    Cannot find jobid 1
    :~>
    So at is installed but no job was created. Maybe GE Pro does not create it.

    If the at command was created by GE, I presume it would be in the file /etc/cron.daily/google-earth, is that correct?

    Thanks,

    No, it's part of the rpm install a %post action which creates the 'at' job... if it's not killed off after the install it will run (since you have 'at' installed) and go away, check your log files...
