I don't know sylpheed, but in the case that it is X application, it will most probably need thee DISPLAY variable.

You should enable verbose mode when possible in the script on sylpheed startup and redirect the output and error output to some file.

    the script is started by hand and not running whstarted by monit =>
    check the environment variables needed).


so finally with help I got the wrapper to create the pid file.I named the
wrapper sylph and put it in the /etc/init.d/ .The code  looks like that :

LOG_FILE=/tmp/CM_`date +%d%b%Y%H%M`.log
CM=`which sylpheed-claws`

if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
  echo "Unable to find sylpheed-claws"
  exit 1

case $1 in
nohup $CM 1>$LOG_FILE 2>&1 &
echo $! > /tmp/
stop) kill `cat /tmp/` ;; *) echo "usage: sylpheed {start|stop}" ;;

I called monit from the terminal, as root, :

monit start sylpheed-claws

returns :

'sylpheed-claws' start : /etc/init.d/sylph
'sylpheed-claws' failed to start

"Monit starts programs with restricted
environment "....I modified monitrc entry to start and stop sylph as root

check process sylpheed-claws with pidfile /tmp/
   group mail
start program = "/etc/init.d/sylph start"
     as uid dsl and gid staff
   stop program = "/etc/init.d/sylph stop"
      as uid root and gid root
   #if failed port 25 protocol smtp then restart
   #if 5 restarts within 5 cycles then timeout

still no go.Same error.

If i run the command from the root shell (/etc/init.d/sylph start) it works
perfect.What did I mixed wrong now?
