I want to schedule a task with crontab to run a python file in a specific anaconda environment every day at a certain time. I have a python script to do so.
The python script runs if I just execute it with
python h.py in the anaconda environment in terminal.
h.py is in the home directory.
I am using Ubuntu 20.04, and I haven't refreshed or installed any new cron or crontab
I have tried the following commands to get it work but they just do nothing (the result should be a folder and it is clearly not has been created)
Inside the crontab:
#[long descriptional text]
53 13 * * * cd /home/ && /home/user/anaconda3/envs/rapids/bin/python h.py
This also does nothing: no error message
I have also tried the following:
32 14 * * * cd /home/Documents && /home/user/anaconda3/envs/rapids/bin/python h.py
34 14 * * * cd /home/Documents && /home/anaconda3/envs/rapids/bin/python h.py 2>&1
This answer on Unix & Linux did not work with normal anaconda.
I have also read the following solutions but nothing has worked.
- How can I run a Python script using Anaconda from the command line
- Crontab service file not found despite installed and configured crontab
- Crontab doesnt run python script
- Execute Python script via crontab
- Crontab Python script does not run with Anaconda on Linux server
One thing I've thought of but not tried is installing a daemon for crontab as is recommended in this answer, but I could not find cronie to install for Ubuntu.
