BTW, there is no space between + and x.
I've never used kcron, so I don't know about that, but I find it quite simple to just keep a little text file around, crontab.txt, which I edit as desired and simply run the command indicated. Once you've submitted the file, cron will run the commands in the file at the times in the file. And it keeps working, even after a reboot, until you tell crontab otherwise.
The only thing remotely complicated is that you have to have the file format correct. But it's well documented by the command man 5 crontab.
