crontab errors

trying to do a crontab -e and i am getting this error?

$crontab -e
/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library 'libgtk-x11-2.0.so'.
crontab: can't create your crontab file in the crontab directory.

 

its only for a specific user, works fine for other people..root..other people allowed in cron.allow....

 

any help would be appreciated.

Re: crontab errors

What editor does this user have set?

 

echo $EDITOR

 

If it is set to something like 'vim', which is not a standard part of HP-UX, then the likely problem is that you are missing the library that is required by vim.

 

Set the editor for this user to 'vi'

 

export EDITOR=vi

 

and have them try the 'crontab -e' command again.  I bet it will work.

Re: crontab errors

this was due to a special editor EPIC made us load not being loaded.

Sorry for wasting time but thanks..
