I have the following python file called temp.py
import subprocess p = subprocess.Popen('growlnotify -m \"Program is not running\"', shell=True, stdout=subprocess.PIPE, stderr=subprocess.STDOUT) retval = p.wait() print "end"
it works fine from the command line with 'python temp.py' and `sudo python temp.py' (all it needs to do is display the growl notification)
I open up crontab with 'crontab -e' (i'm on OSX if that helps. I add the line
- 8-23 * * * python /Users/xxx/Dropbox/scripts/temp.py >> /Users/xx/running.txt
I expect the program to execute every minute from 8am to 23pm - and it does, the 'running.txt' file is filling up - but I'm not getting the growl notifications - any ideas?
