I'd like to setup a crontab job that will periodically start Boxee. Given that it is not a final release there are some issues and it sometimes crashes.
What I want to do is run this job on a regular basis (~ every couple of mins) to start boxee. I have the command to start boxee from a terminal window in Ubuntu, but when i set it up to run in a crontab job, it just doesn't start fully.
I see that the log file is trying to start the application and it doesn't give an error and just stops after a few steps and boxee never starts.
Any help/suggestions on how to run this from a crontab job would be appreciated. Thanks.
