Example My crontab entry is: 30 01 * * * /home/.../sustainLogGen.sh My sustainLogGen.sh is: #!/bin/bash export DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/bin/rdlogmanager -g -s Production -d 3 exit 0 Be sure to run (as rduser and logged into X)... xhost +localhost ... which will let any process on the local machine connect to your display.
Log Creation With Rdcatch
If you would rather the rdcatch daemon make logs create a macro cart with a line like this:
RN DISPLAY=:0.0 rdlogmanager -g -s SERVICE -d 1!
This executes rdlogmanager on the default display under the permission of rdcatchd deamon. That is to say if the user that runs rdcatchd and the user that runs your xorg server are different, don't expect this work. Now just schedule that cart to run every day in rdcatch.
