I need to setup cron every 30 min to start and end Adobe AIR application which is not happening at present. I am using following command.

*/30 * * * * /opt/myapp/myapp

can any one tell me what mistake I am making.

What I found was cron does not execute GUI app. Only command lines are accepted jobs are accepted.

Please guide me what needs to be done.
