Hi Maciej,

The AT daemon comes pre-installed with OpenSUSE Linux (one of the reasons it's our recommended distro) but not with others.
In Ubuntu or Debian, try

sudo apt-get install at

Once the software is installed, you need to tell Linux to run it constantly in the background (that's what is meant by daemon).

I am not totally familiar with Ubuntu, but you can try this

sudo update-rc.d atd defaults

then try testing at:

at now
echo "Maciej" > $HOME/test.txt
(hit control D)

If at has worked, you should see the file $HOME/text.txt has been created and contains Maciej inside it.

David
