Sometimes, I use xmessage or kdialog to remind me of things. I use a syntax like so to remind me in 15 minutes:
sleep 15m ; xmessage "Call Bob at xxx-xxx" -nearmouse
sleep 15m ; kdialog --msgbox "Call Bob at xxx-xxx"
However, when I use the at command job scheduler
, and I enter the command kdialog --msgbox "Call Bob at xxx-xxx"
to be executed at the specific time, it doesn't display the message when the time is up.
I do have permission to use the at command as a regular user because I've done many things in the past with at as a regular user.
Any ideas?...or is the at job scheduler not capable of executing GUI applications.
