    So the auth.log shows that cron has seen and executed your job. I'm out of ideas now I'm afraid.

    Re: Linux Mint 13. Cron task is not working

    Did you find a workarround for this?? Im going mad trying to change background from cron!!!

    Ive tried almost every combination of DISPLAY, XAUTHORITY, env, os.environ, export, &&, you can not imagine how many tries i did with this!!!

    So if you have found a way to exit this loop of desperation, please enlighten us

    It did not work for me even after I reinstalled the OS itself. But in different version of Mint = XFCE ver. 13 it worked like I wanted it to and with no additonal manipulation from my side. Perhaps you may try the other desktop environment...
