   11 Installation
   12 ------------
   13 
   14 Here is the preferred way of installing Email-Reminder:
   15 
   16 1- Run "perl Makefile.pl" to generate the Makefile.
   17 
   18 2- Run "make install" as root to install all program files.
   19 
   20 3- Set up a cron job so that the "collect-reminders" and "send-reminders"
   21    scripts are run everyday.  Under Debian, this is done by putting the
   22    following shell script under /etc/cron.daily/:
   23 
   24    #!/bin/sh
   25    COLLECT_SCRIPT=/usr/sbin/collect-reminders
   26    SEND_SCRIPT=/usr/bin/send-reminders
   27 
   28    if [ -x "$COLLECT_SCRIPT" -a -x "$SEND_SCRIPT" ]; then
   29        $COLLECT_SCRIPT
   30        su - email-reminder -c $SEND_SCRIPT
   31    fi
   32 
   33 4- Add an "email-reminder" user account (usually done with the "adduser" or 
   34    "useradd" commands).
   35 
   36 5- Create the spool directory for that user only:
   37 
   38    mkdir /var/spool/email-reminder
   39    chown email-reminder:email-reminder /var/spool/email-reminder
   40    chmod 750 /var/spool/email-reminder
   41 
   42 6- Should you wish to add a menu entry for Email-Reminder Editor, use
   43    the email-reminder-editor.desktop file.
