Hello, I am not understanding cron correctly. I wrote a perl script to choose a random image and use feh to set it as my wallpaper. When I run the script from the terminal it runs fine. When I added it to my crontab to run every minute it does not change the wallpaper. However, I had the script print some output and redirect it to a file, so I know cron is running the script every minute like it should.
My crontab: http://pastebin.com/YaDHgBai
My script: http://pastebin.com/baB1ULPY
I'm running Mint Linux 8 and using wmii as my window manager. I know it seems silly to worry about the wallpaper with a tiling window manager but that's just how I roll.
I'm having other problems with cron but I'll save that for later.
