http://crunchbanglinux.org – My wife really enjoys seeing Statler (cb-fortune) and I want to surprise her and have Statler say an adage each hour. A little strange, but it is a fun little task.I'm having a problem with getting the cb-fortune script to run once an hour using crontab. My experience with crontab is limited so I'm hoping someone will be able to help me get the right script set up. So far I've tried:50 * * * * /usr/bin/cb-fortune50 * * * * root /usr/bin/cb-fortuneI even tried (once a minute)* * * * * root /usr/bin/cb-fortuneIt just doesn't want to display. When I run "cb-fortune" (HowTos)
