Question at (the task scheduling program) won't work using regular user


Hello folks,

I'm having trouble getting at (the task scheduling program) to work using a regular user - It only works when run as root. Yes, I did RTFM, and I found out that the files at.deny and at.allow contain information about who is allowed and disallowed to use at. However, I've tried adding my username to the allow file and I did check that it is not in the deny file, and I still can't get it to work. Is this a bug?

I am running Debian GNU/Linux (Testing).

Thanks for any help!

When I define scheduled tasts using at as root, it does as it is told (eg. execute a shell script at certain time of the day). When I define scheduled tasks using regular users, they never execute.

There were no log messages about it either.

still not exactly insightful... does the script get saved? can you see it in the output of "atq"? can you run it with "atrun" ?
