autologin for crontab
« on: 15 June 2012, 12:45:33 pm »

Hello,
I have a very stupid question but for an important issue.
I have a crontab task associated with my guiplug user which runs every 5 minutes, it's basically a watchdog that runs a python script.
Now the problem is that the guiplug runs autonomously without anybody logging in (except for maintenance).
How do I make that crontab task to execute even without me logging?
Should I configure a sort of autologin?

Cheers.
