thehatsrule, I added the line to make a log script, but no script is ever made... I am thinking the line is never executed to run the cron_start_frame.sh, but I have moved that line all around the .xinitrc script and NEVER get a log file.
Here is the contents of the cron_start_frame.sh:
#Script to run Digital Picture Frame using FEH
#hide the cursor after 15 seconds
/usr/X11R6/bin/unclutter -idle 5 &
#start slide show
/usr/bin/feh -qxzrZF -D 10 /mnt/hda6/pictures/*.* &
as for the ls -l of the cron_start_frame.sh, the owner is dsl, the group staff, and I did a chmod of 777 on it to be sure it was executable.
It does run when executed from a shell window... runs great in fact, just does not run from the .xinitrc script.
