Hi. There is for Gnome a Gui to cron daemon that can interest a quite wide number of people.
It is called gnome-schedule. http://gnome-schedule.sourceforge.net/
Now, the question, why someone doesn't develop an ebuild for this pretty tool? And why it is absent in portage? :'(
If someone is able to make an ebuild, please do it. Unluckly for me i am not.

You can use "crontab -e".
Seems gnome-schedule is a simple frontend to it.

Or search for it in any portage-Overlay
And if you can't find it, you can learn how to write ebuilds and contribute it to some overlay (i.E. Project Sunrise) :)

Sounds good to me. A simple front-end can make things a lot easier for people who don't use crontab enough to memorize all the columns. I know I have to pop up 'man 5 crontab' every time...

Stick this at the top of your crontab:

Code:
#       +--------------------------------- min (0-59)
#       |       +------------------------- hour (1-31)
#       |       |       +----------------- day of month (1-31)
#       |       |       |       +--------- month (1-12)
#       |       |       |       |       +- day of week (0-6, sun=0)
#       |       |       |       |       |
#       *       *       *       *       *  <command>

Either one of you created it or it's been in the sunrise overlay.

It's in sunrise for 7 months now (07/05/06 11:14:00) so I'm shure it wasn't anybody reading this thread ;-)

so marijuana is not forced to learn how to make ebuilds and can go on smoking his name 8O

i'm quite able to use cron.. for the few things i need. but a package in portage as dependece of gnome-desktop would make easy to new linux/gentoo user approach to more advanced features.

Didn't you know? An ordinary computer scientist has to work 24 hours a day. So his day has to be longer because he has to sleep sometimes, like any other one. ;-)
