kchildlock is a tool to monitor and restrict the time a children spends on the computer. The limits can be specified per day of the week, by lower and upper hour limits, maximum daily usage time, and maximum weekly usage time. The same restriction limits can be applied to applications based on the user login. It requires the KDE4 Desktop.

 This application doesn't do ANYTHING AT ALL

...on a Fedora 17 x86_64 box with kde 4.9.3 (kchildlock version 0.90)

sorry for posting it also in the knowledge base, this is where it should be maybe?)

It is installed, the interface comes up and lets you define limits, apply and save them, export profiles etc... just as explained in the documentation, no warning at all. Both when launched from the system settings panel and from the command line as /usr/bin/kcmshell4 kcm_kchildlock --lang en_US

then when the users whose sessions should be time-limited log in, nothing at all happens. No system tray icon and above all no block /logoff or whatever else should happen after the specified time limits.

files **are** created in /var/lock/, with names like kchildlockd_20121214_094614_debuglog.tmp, but they have no effect at all. No warning is generated in any moment, and I can't find any log file anywhere related to kchildlock. Is this app working for others??? How to debug it?

Please try with latest version and install the 32bit version.
If that does not work, please send me the debug files under /var/opt/kchildlock/ including .kch_time.dat and /usr/share/kde4/config/kchildlockrc*
and /root/.kde4/share/config/kchildlockrc*

On distros, who was migrated on systemd, dbus-query for consolekit don't work. It's need to be changed by query to logind.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
