Hi List,

I'm trying to start a kde application with a shell script. The shell
script is called by cron. But I always get an error that the
application is a "KUniqueApplication". What am I doing wrong?


/usr/bin/kmix #(<just an example, but it doesn't work like anything
else I tried)

That's it. When I call the script in a Konsole window it works (since
I'm in KDE) but when it's called by cron it doesn't.

All ideas are appreciated.
