Strictly for learning purposes (possibly maintenance as well) I am trying to have a Cron job empty my trash once a day.
I have opened terminal and entered the command
crontab -e to access the VI editor to add the command. I've entered Insert mode and added
* * * * * sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash/*, hit the escape key to exit and quit VI with
This particular script I have running every minute just to see if it works and it is not. I thought it might be an issue with cron not having root access, so I added the same line to the
sudo crontab -e file and it doesn't seem to be saving.
Any ideas what could be wrong with this cron job?
