First, you do not have a $USER named user in your system therefore /run/user/ would not exist.
Unless you created a user login so under /home there would be two accounts, /home/larry/ and /home/user/[/quote]
larry@Whizz:~$ ls /run/user
larry@Whizz:~$ ls /run/user/1000/
at-spi doc gvfs pipewire-0 speech-dispatcher
bus geany gvfsd pipewire-0.lock systemd
dbus-1 gnupg ICEauthority pk-debconf-socket update-notifier.pid
dconf gui.lock keyring pulse webkitgtk
[quote=Second, tmpfs is used to pass information between the $USER and the bus. It needs a valid mount point to pass information. Since your only $USER is larry, the only valid mount point would be /run/larry/1000/[/quote]
OK. But I do not have a 'larry' in /run.
larry@Whizz:~$ ls /run/
acpid.pid expressvpn openvpn teamviewerd.ipc
acpid.socket fsck openvpn-client teamviewerd.pid
agetty.reload initctl openvpn-server thermald
alsa initramfs plymouth tlp
avahi-daemon irqbalance samba tmpfiles.d
blkid lightdm sendsigs.omit.d udev
console-setup lightdm.pid shm udisks2
credentials lock speech-dispatcher unattended-upgrades.lock
crond.pid log spice-vdagentd user
crond.reboot motd.d sshd utmp
cryptsetup mount sshd.pid uuidd
cups network sudo
dbus NetworkManager systemd
If it matters, my Ubuntu is
Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS
[quote=Third, just because something works does not mean it is right.[/quote]
Right. But is the fact that there is a /run/user the reason for it working?
It did not work with /run/larry and it looks like the reason is that there is no /run/larry

OK, but how would I remind myself to change the furnace filter every two months?
Would I have to have a large number of Stickynotes cluttering up my desktop?
The reason for wanting a long t- value is that I want the notification up on my screen when I am done all the things I need to do in the morning, and sometimes, even on into the afternoon and evening. I never know when I'll get around to the computer. cron currently does the job I want it to do. If you can point out a downside to what I am now using, I'd consider changing it.
Stickynotes would probably work for me if I can call them with cron on the when they are relevant.
