On a Qubes 3.1 in the standard anon-whonix Workstation I had difficulties getting cronjob working. After a restart attemp with
sudo /etc/init.d/cron start that indicated a succesfull start of cron, however
sudo service --status-all indicated that cron was not running.
Not sure if this problem is a qubes-whonix specifc problem or all Whonix versions. If more info is needed for solving this problem, feel free to ask! How could cron/cronjob be activated when
sudo /etc/init.d/cron start seems to be ignored?
