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 with KDE.
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.
- All the files that are modified are located in the /etc/cron directory where there are numerous files to look at.
- The command-line tool to have a look at the currently installed cron-jobs is crontab -l (that's the letter L).
