# Transmission

## Starting and stopping on schedule

To run transmission from the crontab (/etc/crontab), it must be associated with a display as in the following example. The first line starts transmission at 2 am, and the second stops it at 8 am. Edit the crontab with sudo nano /etc/crontab, and add the following lines (replace username with your Linux username).

0 2 * * * username transmission --display=:0
0 8 * * * username killall -9 transmission
