I need to open one (or more) browser tab periodically and I decided to use cron.
The command in the shell (bash) that correctly executes this task is
chromium-browser http://mysite.com. If I type it, the browser opens the site in a tab.
But the same command inserted as a task in the crontable doesn't work.
If I redirect the output of other simple commands in the crontable in a file they work correctly, say
echo "hello world" > /home/user/file
So, shall I redirect the output of the command
chromium-browser http://mysite.com to my graphic interface? If yes, which would be the device?
