I ran a few jobs with at command and, if possible, I want to see which commands I ran in what directories. I work with Linux Mint 16 if this is relevant.

The at jobs do not appear in bash_history. Apparently once the jobs are run, they vanish. If you want to keep logs, you can add echo 'some comment' > ~/at.log lines manually.


Maybe the bash history is useful for you; see the file .bash_history in your home directory. To query the bash history, just use the command history (see the bash reference guide, ch. 9.2), together with grep if neccesary.

(Edited - removed content regarding pending at jobs).

  • I know how to list with atq and see the details of pending jobs. I was asking for completed jobs. I will check .bash_history. Jun 25, 2014 at 9:52
  • Sorry, missed that point. I've removed the irrelevant part of my answer.
