Session timeout in Zorin OS Terminal

session timeout in Zorin Terminal

Session was geting auto logged off after 5 minutes of in-activity

journalctl -f showing below errors

pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)

This was fixed by editing the file name /etc/pam.d/common-session-noninteractive

sudo vim /etc/pam.d/common-session-noninteractive

and adding new line

session [success=1 default=ignore] service in cron quiet use_uid

and restart crond

sudo service cron restart

This fixed the issue
