http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi All, I am trying to run GIMP using a Cron job, the job gets submitted/executed in time, but its unable to open gimp display. :dazed: I get the following mail. Code: Subject: Cron <rinjo@localhost> /usr/bin/gimp-2.4 Date: Thu, 17 Dec 2009 21:04:01 0530 (IST) Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Auto-Submitted: auto-generated X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/sh> X-Cron-Env: <HOME=/home/rinjo> X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/usr/bin:/bin> X-Cron-Env: <LOGNAME=rinjo> X-Cron-Env: <USER=rinjo> cannot open display: Can anyone help me solve this issue, so that the display is opened. Basically my idea is to run a job that will trigger some display based executable. regards Rinjo (HowTos)
