I'm new to this launchd scheduler. I am trying to run a perl script every 60 secs but I keep getting the following message(s) in system.log before launchd removes the job!!!
Code:
Apr 18 14:19:38 kimba launchd: org.james.desktop: 9 more failures without living at least 60 seconds will cause job removal
I just want to run my script every 60 seconds as I would do with cron. My .plist file is as below
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
  <key>GroupName</key>
  <string>james</string>
  <key>Label</key>
  <string>org.james.script</string>
  <key>Program</key>
  <string>./script.pl</string>
  <key>ProgramArguments</key>
  <array>
    <string>./script.pl</string>
  </array>
  <key>ServiceDescription</key>
  <string>change desktop</string>
  <key>StartInterval</key>
  <integer>60</integer>
  <key>TimeOut</key>
  <integer>5</integer>
  <key>UserName</key>
  <string>james</string>
  <key>WorkingDirectory</key>
  <string>/Users/james</string>
</dict>
</plist>
I would use cron but I can it does not seem to work at the moment, either way I would prefer to use launchd.

IIRC Apple suggests you just to use cron.
