You are right with env. variable $PATH. But using command
/usr/sbin/faubackup did not help, becouse faubackup use other programs
from /usr/sbin. I searched more on internet about this and I found out,
that best (only) solution is put enviroment variable definition in
crontab file.
Thanks for advice
