It's in root's crontab and I can manually run it as root and so I'm not sure why that would be happening. Do I need to rename the file faxscript.sh or something? Maybe change the ownership for it? Else, does cron default to running it as non-root?
Ok, so I found out that only /etc/crontab supports the username feature. So I tried it there but got the same error. Next I just changed the permissions to 775. The good news is I no longer get a permissions error. The bad news is the script still doesn't seem to be executed. I say seem b/c I'm not getting an error email of any kind the output of the cron job (which faxes a file then erases it) still doesn't work.
