The copy command 'cp' has an option -u that might be useful in
pschedule.


With this option the copy is only made if the source file is newer.

Quote:
-u, --update
copy only when the SOURCE file is newer than the destination file
or when the destination file is missing

dumb question - but I'll ask anyway.

I love Pschedule, it's doing exactly what I need it to.

As is the norm for cron, if the computer isn't powered up, and a Pschedule job is scheduled to run, the job simply won't run.

Is there any way to get Pschedule to run these deferred jobs when the computer is powered up?

I've heard that anacron can do this - can this program somehow be "tied in" to Pschdule?

Thanks for any tips (for a relative newbie)

Bill

There is a log describing when the user shutdown and reboots

/var/log/

and from that info and the crontab info it would be possible to
write a list of jobs that were missed while the computer was shutdown,
but nobody has written a script to do that ???

A francophone user complained about Lucid 528 not working with
pschedule.

PostPosted: Sat 13 Apr 2013, 11:51    Post subject: bug in pschedule  

While working on a Japanese translation of Pschedule
I came upon this odd bug...

Launch 'pschedule' from terminal

Don't put in any information for the settings.

Click the 'Add' button.

The result is gibberish line.(see image)
It doesn't cause a crash fortunately. Laughing

I am glad you'd report this even if it's not critical.
Now fixed with 1.1.3

Hi, thanks for this nifty little programme.

One issue:
When I schedule any task for the hour 08 or 09, pschedule tells me it's scheduled for the hour "00"

version 1.1.5 - bug found

I've been testing pclock in 64 bit Quirky and I had to
remove the analog clock.

...but more importantly I tested an alarm time so that
it went off at 8:05 am every day, but it didn't work.

I investigated and other times worked, so maybe pschedule won't work
between 8:00 and 8:59 ???

I need to test more times, to be sure.

I think I know why pschedule doesn't work properly in Quirky 64 bit.

It's the way that the time zone is set.

Pschedule is confused by the hour. That is why it will behave properly

when I set it to alarm every 10 minutes, but it won't alarm at 5:10 am
because an hour is mentioned.

The discussion about /var/spool/cron started a long time ago (page 2 of this thread)

I haven't looked at it, and it would require some digging for me to move crontabs to /etc/crontabs since the crontab format is different (if I got it right). Atm, my IRL is a bit stuffed, so I have not the required time at this very moment.
