New user can't use fcron

I created a new user and he should be able to use fcron.

I already added him to cron group and fcron.allow file:

usermod -aG cron user
echo user >> /etc/fcron.allow

When running fcrontab -e I receive the following message which I couldn’t figure out how to fix myself:

ERROR could not change euid to 104: Operation not permitted

Any ideas?

Hi @wellhelloo

Welcome to the IPFire community.

You were correct to have the user in fcron.allow but you have to run fcrontab as root and then specify the user. So if your user was named frconuser the following command would be used

sudo fcrontab -u fcronuser -e
