In this thread I have learned how to use timedclient-qt5 to schedule jobs as a substitute to cron.

Is there a way to edit cookies / jobs after they have been created?

The command timedclient-qt5 --show displays a list of details of all cookies. Is this information stored somewhere in plain text such that it could be edited directly?

1st off: You are really really really not supposed to modify alarm data manually. There is built in expectation that details bound to a cookie are immutable. When alarms are modified via timed api and it always involves getting a new cookie assigned to the alarm. And modifying alarms "owned" by some other application risks breakage even when done in the correct manner from api point of view.

That said, it goes something like this:

  1. systemctl --user stop timed-qt5
  2. vi /home/nemo/.timed/
  3. (hope that you did not break anything)
  4. systemctl --user start timed-qt5

It might still be easier to just use cron.

At least it does not have these dangerous side-effects :)
