• very nice distro but I have an issue

    I installed the latest Antergos with XFCE. I love it. It’s fast, and clean looking. One thing I can’t do that I have no problem in other distros like Debian or Ubuntu is to get my cronjobs working.
    I went into crontab -e and entered my jobs. They don’t execute at the desired times. Is there something different in how Antergos handles cron?

    Works fine when I try the code from the terminal.

  • I think you need to install Cronie. Then enable and start it.
    #systemctl enable cronie
    #systemctl start cronie

    As I recall it worked for me, your mileage may vary…
