scheduling qbittorrent to stop at 0800 daily

Asked by Rajinder Sandhu on 2010-02-07

Since there is no Scheduler available in qbittorrent, and I need it to stop at 0800 hrs daily wtopping downloads and if possible close the application after saying yes because it prompts for yes/no before closing application.
Please provide answer in detail.
Thanks,
Rajinder

you can use at or cron to schedule tasks, you can create a script to run as root to kill the process so that no close verify is needed. You could also see if there is a way to make the client not need the close verification and you can then close the app more gracefully.

Hi Actionparsnip

After doing lot of work around finally succeeded by using sudo crontab - e in terminal and making the entry to
0 8 * * * /sbin/shutdown qbittorrent
but this not happening with the gnome-schedule or gui provided with the Linux...please take up the case with the developers to correct the issue ..I gave the answer in detail so that even newbies can follow it easily.
Thanks, Closing the problem

Try using 'killall qbittorrent' instead of shutdown. shutdown is for turning the system off, whereas killall is for closing a process based on its name.
