General Information

Preferences-system.png KCron is a tool for running applications in the background at regular intervals. It's a graphical interface to the Cron command.

KCron is a standard application that is prepackaged for KDE workspaces.

KCron in KDE SC 4


Usage

First define what variables your application needs and their values, then select your application. When this is done you select at which times your application should be run and you're all set.

In Kde4-button.png In 4.4 KCron is a module which could be found in System Settings -> Advanced -> System section -> Task Scheduler. If it is not present, please check that you have the kdeadmin package installed. In KDE 4.5 you will find it in System Settings -> System Administration section -> Task Scheduler. Some distros make KCron a separate package, so if it's not visible you should query your repository for it.

In Kde3-button.png KCron can be started using Alt+F2 or K-Menu.

  • The command-line tool that allows you to have a look at the currently installed cron-jobs is
    crontab -l
    (that's the letter L).
