cron won't load my programs....

Hi all..., I'm trying to create a cronjob to call Azureus (I think that's the name) every day..., now, what I do is:

1 - Add this line in the cron file:

0 13 * * 1-4 /home/fernando/azureus/

The script "" is this:


cd /home/fernando/azureus/;

JAVA_BIN_=`which java`

$JAVA_BIN_ -cp swt.jar:Azureus2.2.0.2.jar -Djava.library.path=. org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main

err=`echo $?`

if [ $err -gt 1 ];
echo "There was an error" >> logAz.log
echo "Everything good" >> logAz.log

Now, if I run that script manually, it works great, and Azureus gets loaded..., but if cron runs the cron job, I get this error:

which: no java in (/usr/bin:/bin)
/home/fernando/azureus/ line 7: -cp: command not found

What's up with that????

Why does it work when I run it manually, and not when cron runs it????

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

cron does not have the same search path that your username has.

Give the absolute path in your script or change the search path for cron.

Well, now it is actually calling the script, but azureus is crashing, I get this error in the log:
