Using Cron For Reminders
This is probably a very lame question . I know how to setup cron to run a small script which copies files, etc whenever i want it too.
What i cannot do is to DISPLAY a message on my SCREEN at such and such a time reminding me to do something, say "Coffee Break" , etc. When i try to write a script it usually sends mails to root. When i use crontab -e and give the following values ,
0 15 * * * echo 'COFFEE BREAK'
it does not work ,
I cannot understand why this does not work ? How do i set up cron so i get reminders on my screen when i am using my Fedora Linux Box ( Gnome ).
