I modified pclock for fatdog arm and I noticed that
the alarm button can be made smaller. It just requires an hbox within an hbox
Code:
<vbox>     
     
      <edit editable="false" left_margin="10"><input file>'$WORKDIR'/alarm_txt</input></edit>
          <vbox>
                <hbox homogeneous="true"><hbox>
                <button height-request="50">
                <label>'$(gettext "Define Alarm")'</label>
                <action>alarm</action>
               <action>echo $ALARM > '$WORKDIR'/ALARM</action>
               </button>
               </hbox></hbox>
          </vbox>
               <hbox>
                      <text><label>'$(gettext "Audio")'</label></text>
                      <entry accept="file">
                      <variable>ALARM</variable>
                      <input>cat '$WORKDIR'/ALARM</input>
                      </entry>
                      <button>
                      <input file stock="gtk-open"></input>
                      <action type="fileselect">ALARM</action>
                      </button>
                      </hbox>
</vbox>

There's a new version of pschedule . The launching is different. Apparently some strange behaviour
with the busybox version of crond
James bond noticed this years ago but didn't report it to you. Crying or Very sad

Quote:
#!/bin/dash
# Description: System task scheduler.
# jamesbond 2012

start_cron() {
# static uclibc crond only understands POSIX tz, convert
export TZ=GMT$(date +%z | sed 'y/+-/-+/; s/.../&:/')
echo "Starting task scheduler."
[ ! -e /var/spool/cron/crontabs ] && ln -sfT /etc/crontabs /var/spool/cron/crontabs
crond
}

Does pSchedule trouble in Puppy as well, or is this a Quirky problem?
What happens using jamesbonds code if crond is not from busybox?

Thanks for feedback

PostPosted: Thu 13 Jun 2019, 23:15    Post subject: Scheduling non-standard reoccurences  

IDK if anyone else would be interested in this, but i wanted to run a task at irregular intervals - in my case, workday afternoons, Mon through Fri at 2:10PM. I found i could not use CTRL+Click to pick multiple days (or multiple times or dates or months) for an event in Pschedule. However, I discovered that i could create the task without setting a schedule for it (i.e., just use the default, every minute), save it, then open the file /var/local/cron/crontabs/root and change it from:

* * * * * my_program #

to:

20 14 * * 1,2,3,4,5 my_program #

Save and exit. Good to discover, perhaps someone else can use.
For anyone unfamiliar with cron scheduling, it's easy to find on the 'net; Corntab is a fine online tool to generate the proper time codes.
