I have tried to set up a program to run every monday and friday at 8:00am. in kcron everything sounds ok, but when 8am comes around, nothing. I've checked, and crond is indeed working, and I did save the changes made in kcron. So what is happening? I know the beagle indexer is working but in the background... Does cron not open gui programs when run? the program I'd like to open is klinkstatus or gurlchecker. (# klinkstatus http://mysite.com)

(I've not run gui programs from crons so would like to know if this works)
