Question Kubuntu - Scheduler Issue


Hi, I'm new to the forums in the sense that I just started posting here... this should be my first post if I'm not mistaken.

I have just recently installed Kubuntu, I have had previous experience in handling Ubuntu and Suse (to a degree, I've never owned either) and since I liked Ubuntu, but thought of KDE as more logical, Kubuntu was the logical sollution.

In any event, there seems to be something wrong with the Scheduler, the screensaver I set does not start, though I believe I set it correctly, and I added a task to Kcron wich is supposed to let XMMS play my playlist... but it doesn't start at the scheduled times. I can run it by choosing the "Run Now" option... but that's about it.

I'm kind of a Linux N00b but I would like to get these issues resolved.

Thanks in advance!

Try making sure cron is running:
Code:
ps aux|grep cron
root      6553  0.0  0.1   2196   856 ?        Ss   Oct09   0:00 /usr/sbin/cron
user      16312  0.0  0.1   2800   564 pts/2    D+   17:53   0:00 grep cron
If you don't see the "/usr/sbin/cron" try running
Code:
sudo /etc/init.d/cron start

When I type
Code:
ps aux|grep cron
I get the following:
Code:
root      4488  0.0  0.0  11428   880 ?        Ss   Oct09   0:00 /usr/sbin/cron
1000      8905  0.0  0.0   3956   916 pts/1    R+   21:40   0:00 grep cron
Looks to me like it's running...

Look I'm a complete NewB when it comes to linux of any sort... and I have no clue what's going on in the shell most of the time... I've worked with Dos in the past (extensively so...) but this is a whole new ball game.

I really want to get this solved... so if anyone has ANY suggestions or points of notice, that'd be great!
