I want something quite simple, is just to configure the fbsetbg to change randomly the background of my desktop so I just used this:
*/5 * * * * /usr/X11/bin/fbsetbg -r path_to_the_wallpapers
The folder containing the images are owend by the user and has proper rights, as a mater of fact if I run the command through a console I have no problem but the crontab seems to be ignored, no error mail no nothing.
There is a crontab.# inside /var/spool/crontab and there is a specific one on /var/spool/crontab/crontabs/Xuser
Running slack 10.2 by the way.
