Hi list I would appreciate any help on this: I want to use CRON in order to wake up a /View script every 15 minutes Using crontab -e I have entered the following 0,15,30,45 * * * * /home/user/rebol/rebol /home/user/rebol/scripts/myscript.r Tough cron executes the job nothing happens and and I got the following email: ** User Error: REBOL: Cannot connect to X server ** Near: size: size-text self all [ para para/origin size: size + para/origin para/margin size: size + para/margin ] thanks Carlos

Looks like REBOL isn't talking to X Windows properly. Can you launch the script manually? Enjoy!! ~~Ammon ;~>

Do you really need /view? /core works without X. Else, something a shell-script like export DISPLAY=0:0 /home/user/rebol/rebol/home/user/rebol/scripts/myscript.r You need also access to that display. Don't know much about cron, i guess it runs as root. so we su: export DISPLAY=0:0 su display-owner -c /home/user/........ And because i may not be logged in, i have a vnc-server running, which works as headless X. then the 0:0 must be adjusted of course.
