It seems to me it's much better to add a new file in any of these

i don't understand, i am a newbie from linux ;-D

I have done many tests, here is the last + my PATH :

crontab -l
# Edit this file to introduce tasks to be run by cron.
# Each task to run has to be defined through a single line
# indicating with different fields when the task will be run
# and what command to run for the task
# To define the time you can provide concrete values for
# minute (m), hour (h), day of month (dom), month (mon),
# and day of week (dow) or use '*' in these fields (for 'any').
# Notice that tasks will be started based on the cron's system
# daemon's notion of time and timezones.
# Output of the crontab jobs (including errors) is sent through
# email to the user the crontab file belongs to (unless redirected).
# For example, you can run a backup of all your user accounts
# at 5 a.m every week with:
# 0 5 * * 1 tar -zcf /var/backups/home.tgz /home/
# For more information see the manual pages of crontab(5) and cron(8)
# crontab Environmental settings
# Crontab Command settings
# m h dom m dow command
28 19 * * * gedit
29 20 * * * killall -w gedit

echo $PATH

Thank you and regards
