cronjob script start WebGrab raspberry pi

Hi ,

Can Webgrab be scheduled to run on raspberry pi via crontab ?

i tried to script first:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
# WebGrab

cd /home/pi/wg++
/usr/bin/mono WebGrab+Plus.exe  "$(pwd)"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

result is that it don't get the config file

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
/ doesn't exist!
correct the commandline parameter to match an existing path!
Excecution will stop!
pi@raspberrypi ~ $
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

How can i correct this ?
Thanks in advance.

kind regards,

 

WaiH

can you run it manually?

And what is the exact logfile?

i can run it manually with

cd wg++/
mano WebGrab+Plus.exe "$(pwd)"

the only log is the log when it started manually (included)

but somehow it doesn't work when i use it in a .sh script.

And can you run the .sh manualy?

You could try to change the .sh to:

cd /home/pi/wg++
/usr/bin/mono WebGrab+Plus.exe  "/home/pi/wg++"

tried it, still the same error, tried different variations

cd /home/pi/wg++
/usr/bin/mono WebGrab+Plus.exe  /home/pi/wg++/

with

cd /home/pi/wg++
/usr/bin/mono WebGrab+Plus.exe  "$(/home/pi/wg++/WebGrab++.config.xml)"

i get this

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ bash test.sh
/home/pi/wg++/WebGrab++.config.xml: line 1: !--?xml: No such file or directory
/home/pi/wg++/WebGrab++.config.xml: line 2: settings: No such file or directory

pi@raspberrypi ~ $

somehow it can't find the config file

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
with:

cd /home/pi/wg++
/usr/bin/mono WebGrab+Plus.exe  "/home/pi/wg++/WebGrab++.config.xml"

it gives:

/ doesn't exist!bGrab++.config.xml
correct the commandline parameter to match an existing path!

without quotes:

cd /home/pi/wg++

No WebGrab++.config.xml after the path.

The parameter to wg++ must be a folder, not a file!

 

So

cd /home/pi/wg++
/usr/bin/mono WebGrab+Plus.exe  /home/pi/wg++

should work.

And in your first post, it worked, so that should be the way to do it.

Also, did you copy the text from windows to linux, or just retyped it in linux?
I know that this is sometimes mixing up things.

i typed it all in linux.

still not working with /home/pi/wg++ OR  ./ or any other reference to a dir, it won't run  and gives

/ doesn't exist!
correct the commandline parameter to match an existing path!
Excecution will stop!

attached test.sh file

have you find a solution?

 

i have the same trouble, i want to execute wg++ in gnome schedule so i don't do it manually, but doesn't works.

 

seems that doesn't recognize files in wg++, so tell me that missing files in /home/pi, but wg++ is on /home/pi/wg++

#!/bin/bash

cd $HOME/pi/wg++ && mono WebGrab+Plus.exe "$(pwd)"

should work, check if your system has bash update, use scheduler

terminal:

sudo apt-get install gnome-schedule
