    'banshee --play' from crontab opens a new instance

    What I'm trying to do is have Banshee (which you can assume is already running) start playing at 8:45.

    Here's my crontab line:

    Code:
    45      8       *       *       1-5             banshee --play
    Running this command manually through a terminal works fine, it does exactly what I'd hope. However, when cron tries to run it, it just opens a new instance of Banshee and nothing more.

    I've tried adding "DISPLAY=:0" just in case, but it didn't make a difference.

    Can anyone help?
