KCron

Fri Jan 31, 2020 7:31 am
Hi. I am interested to know what happened to Kcron?

I can schedule my system backup by date and not by time. When it runs it makes my workstation laggy so I want it to run in the middle of the night.

The Crontab GUI provided by kcron would be useful instead of doing a command lie crontab edit.

According to https://userbase.kde.org/System_Settings/Task_Scheduler, the Task Scheduler should be part of the System Settings in Plasma 5, but it is not in mine, just checked. I suggest filing a bug, this must be a regression. Please post the bug number here so I can confirm it.

Moving this to the Appearance & System Configuration subforum.


Currently running Kubuntu 20.04, Plasma 5.18.5, Frameworks 5.68.0, Qt 5.12.8, kernel 5.4.0-46
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions in this forum, makes it easier for us to help ...

OK, so just found out that it is no longer part of the default installation, but you can install a package called "kde-config-cron" (on Debian based systems at least) and the Task scheduler shows up in the System Settings.
