xfdesktop is flooding sendmail
About 7-8 months ago I tried to get xfce to rotate the desktop background, using cron and /usr/bin/xfdesktop -reload somehow. Now, I no longer use xfce, and I never had sendmail running and I wanted to toy with it a little, but xfdesktop is flooding my local email account, both root and my normal user account.
My users emails subject is: "cron: /usr/bin/xfdesktop -reload" and the contents of it: "(xfdesktop:7832): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:" With root I get the same subject but the content is: "/bin/sh line 1: /usr/bin/xfdesktop: No such file or directory"
It is really annoying because my processes get flooded as well with procmail and sendmail taking up more than 2000 processes. When I /etc/rc.d/rc.sendmail stop the processes goes back to a normal amount. Although oddly it does not slow my computer.
How do I stop xfdesktop from trying to reload? I see no entry is /etc/cron.* I remember setting it to reload with some commandline but I have no recollection what that was.
