I want to have my Google calendar events displayed in a popup window every so often.
I have a script that works in the terminal.
(rg is just another script I have that calls a popup window for my remind file.)
wget https://www.google.com/calendar/ical/url to my calendar/basic.ics
cat /home/grouchygaijin/basic.ics | ical2rem.pl > ~/.ical2rem
The problem is that if I try to run this script as a cron job (gnome schedule) it chokes when it gets to the part to pipe the basic.ics to ical2rem.pl
Any idea why this will work if I type the name of the script in the terminal but not work if I try to schedule the script to run automatically?
I figured it out. I needed to give the full path the the ical2rem.pl script.
