comment How to Use Crontab to display something to users on DISPLAY=:0.0 or run a GUI program
So, to clarify, it does or doesn't go in the crontab entry? - Do I put this command into my script instead?

is the xauth-foo file likely to be .Xdefaults? I'm not sure which file to perform xauth extract. Is $DISPLAY the only variable we are extracting with xauth?

Thanks for the suggestion! I've tried editing with crontab -e --- 42 23 31 1 * xhost local: /usr/local/sbin/myscript.sh - but it didn't even run in the background.
