    Re: launch deluge autoomatically using scheduled tasks

    To schedule tasks, you need cron. Google cron (or type man 5 crontab in a terminal) to find out how it works.

    Type the following command from the terminal or from Alt-F2:
    Code:
    VISUAL='gedit' crontab -e
    This will bring up your cron table, which is probably empty.

    Enter the following lines (blank lines and lines starting with # are comments and are ignored).
    Code:
    # Prevent filling up your mailbox.
    MAILTO=''
    
    # Start Deluge every day at 2:10 a.m.
    10 2 * * * deluge
    Save the file and close gedit.

    To shut down, enter the shutdown command into Alt-F2 (type man shutdown into a terminal to find how it works).
    Code:
    sudo shutdown -P 7:00
    Note: If you use a terminal, you will have to modify the command so that you can close the terminal:
    Code:
    sudo nohup shutdown -P 7:00 &>/dev/null &

    You need to be much more specific than that. Remember that I can't see your computer.

    What's not working -- Deluge or shutdown or amending your crontab?

    How do you know it's not working -- does it give an error? Does Deluge simply not start? What exactly is (or is not) going on?

    then i get this error..
    "Could not open location 'file:///home/stenin/VISUAL='gedit'%20crontab%20-e'"

    Error stating file '/home/stenin/VISUAL='gedit' crontab -e': No such file or directory...

    then i tried it in terminal...
    i saved it and closed gedit..
    but i get this message in terminal..



    stenin@DreamER:~$ VISUAL='gedit' crontab -e

    i will try shutdown commmand later and tell you..

    now,,

    YOU PLEASE CONSIDER THIS TOO

    i'v launched deluge&shutdown command osuccessfully in one of the previous version of ubuntu..


    i opened "scheduled tasks" using some command...
    then i add a recurrent task,one for deluge& one for shutdown..

    i used this command i think.. "deluge --ui=gtk"

    i don't have the shutdown command with me now

    now i forgot even its "default behaviour" which i used then..
    i'v no idea about programng and all,i got this commands from some sites..

    thank u Paddy Landau...

    Re: launch deluge autoomatically using scheduled tasks

    Since deluge is a gui application you need to specify the display environment variable in the crontab.. like
    10 2 * * * export DISPLAY=:0.0 && /usr/bin/deluge

    Also to shutdown...you have to add the following to the root's crontab
    00 07 * * * halt
    adding sudo shutdown to your crontab will not work...as you won't be able to enter the sudo password.

    Sorry, that was my mistake. You were right to try it from the terminal.

    That is a bit strange. Please try this (in a terminal):
    Code:
    cd ~
    sudo chown stenin:stenin .recently*
    Then try again to edit your crontab.

    BugBuster is right about putting halt into your root's crontab if you want to execute it every day.
    Code:
    sudo VISUAL='gedit' crontab -e
    I had understood it was a one-off request, in which case entering it into the terminal as I showed you would do fine.

    Did you remember to put 'sudo' in front of the chown command?
