comment Bash script not executing from crontab
Could you try whether simple setting it to PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin already does the trick? Now I'm wondering... I moved the comment to an answer.

Or could you try changing the shebang to #!/bin/sh?

Could it be that you need to give your cron a PATH? For instance: SHELL=/bin/sh PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin In your case, try putting: SHELL=/bin/sh PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/home/srvlinux01/MySQLBackups/ before your command.

Hi Martin. I am happy you got it to work! Did you try something like gnome-session-quit? Source: askubuntu.com/questions/15795/…

Just out of interest: How sensitive is the information on your computer? Or how crazy is your friend? Are you afraid he accessed some of your documents? If so, check the timestamps. Are you afraid he used your computer to do malicious things?

comment Pain in the neck: Is there a way to reverse the vertical direction of gnome-terminal?
Even though it is marked as answered, I think this would be a good feature to have. Adjusting your position is not efficient: the screen might be at eye level, but the bottom of the screen is not. Can you request the feature? Not sure, but you might do it here: brainstorm.ubuntu.com

The reset script runs whatever is found in the Xreset.d directory.
