In order to have an app appear in X without being run by the actual user, you will have to set your DISPLAY varible.
Ok, still no luck with this. If I set up a script and run it manually, this works great, and I can control where the xterm shows up.
However, setting it up to run automatcially through Cron will result in nothing showing up. It runs, according to the logs.. but the xterm window will not show up using this method.
So, back to the drawing board for now.
Any other suggestions on how to get a terminal or xterm window to open using Cron (or something similar)?
