Paul, you'd be more likely to get answers from kubuntu-
email@example.com, as this list caters to Ubuntu rather than Kubuntu.
Which version of kubuntu are you running? kcron on karmic is only available
from "System Settings" (ie, there is no /usr/bin/kcron) and has a clear
radio button that allows you to choose either "Personal" or "System"
crontabs (the KDE 3.5 version allowed you to choose _any_ user's crontab,
but made figuring out how to use the system one a little confusing).
However in karmic, I see if you get there _from_ System Settings, the system
cron is not modifiable. You _should_ be able to run "kdesudo kcmshell
kcron", but that isn't working for me, either (nor is "kcmshell --list").
"kdesudo systemsettings" does work, and now shows me radio buttons for
"Personal cron", "System cron" and "Cron of user ...", so I'd say it's a
familiar old bug of not asking for admin credentials inside systemsettings.
