Re: [Solved] Auto delete trash?

Would trash-cli (and all software) being installed via github in the above method get automatic updates when I run 'sudo eopkg upgrade'? Only things installed direct from the repository get automatically updated with "eopkg up", unless the developer built in their own update mechanism. So that coul...

Would trash-cli (and all software) being installed via github in the above method get automatic updates when I run 'sudo eopkg upgrade'? Anything that didn't come out of the repository. I would say you have to up date those individually. I'm sure there are exceptions. Just can't think of any at thi...

Re: How to use dcron?

The 'find ~/Downloads -mtime +100 -delete' part of the script ran fine. I can use the 'trash-empty 1' command at startup for auto clearing my trash bin.

Re: How to use dcron?

Actually what I could do perhaps is put a few lines in a script to run at login. That is - link to a bash script in the startup section in the MATE control panel. How about this? The 2 end ones are just examples and the 2nd command will delete files older than 1 day old from trash (also solves anoth...

I believe you have to use systemd for this task. Cron doesn't work in Solus, the last time I read about it.

Hi gimcrack.

I'm totally lost there.

[Solved] Need hourly notifier on Solus MATE to remind me to take a break.

Hi.

I use Workrave on Debian. I see Solus does not have it.

How can I get a notifier pop up on the hour, every hour in Solus MATE?

Thanks.

[Solved] How to use dcron?

Hi.

How do I use dcron?

I want to run this command which I currently run in cron on Debian, it deletes all files over 100 days old in the downloads folder:

Code: Select all

45 9,17 * * * find ~/Downloads -mtime +100 -delete
Does dcron only cover user cron jobs? Or also root cron jobs?
