 some thoughts on the issue...

 
 by nknknk on: Aug 30 2008
 
Score 50%

why would a kid spend too much time watching tv,
or using the computer, or... etc?

most likely,
because it has nothing better to do...

I think it would be better to give the child something better to do,
or spend some time with him/her,
instead of trying to put restrictions on him/her...

on the other hand,
I am not a parent,
and I can't fully apriciate how difficult it can become,
some times...

Then refrain from speaking about that which you have no idea and making yourself look foolish.

 Good Idea

 
 by KennV on: Sep 15 2008

I like the idea. In fact, I wrote a simple perl script a while ago, that while not a comprehensive as yours, shared some common goals.

A couple things I did that you may consider:
- Friendly prewarnings of time running out. eg: kdialog bubble coming up to tell the user that there is five minutes of time left.
- ability for program to send email (I sent it to my phone) when the user logs in or out, and if the computer has been left on for an extended period of time (so it can be turned off to save energy).

Good Work. Can't wait to try it out!

Prewarnings of time running out exist. The user will receive notifications 15, 10 and 5 minutes before the logout to finish his work.

I will consider how to implement the ability to send email after an extended period of time.

This could be part of KDE 4.3. I think this tool can be very important :) . I'm not a parent but I think your idea is very good :) . Go on.

 Kudos ... and a request.

I am a parent, and I am planning on teaching my children about COMPUTERS ... not just Windows. That said, let me be one of the first to let you know that any version of this that gets ported to the 4.x line of KDE will be immediately installed by myself. Nothing beats proper parental supervision, but those of us who know that we humans are actually fallable will understand how this type of app is a very useful tool to assist with that supervision. Thanks for your effort so far, and if ever you decide to port it upward to 4.x, we will be very appreciative.

The latest version 0.60 should run on KDE4, at least on opensuse 11.0 (even if perhaps some kde3 libraries have to be installed).

Over all, good, BUT...

About 4 years ago, I started something similar, but in a different angle
I really do not want to truly limit my child from the computer any more than I want to kill their tv (I have little issues with my child watching history or discover). What is wanted to do was cut out what they could get to. Basically, with the computer tied to school, they need the ability to get apps/services like Koffice/OO while at the same time restricting games, or videos. Likewise, I was headed in direction of restricting internet access, though ideally, it would have limits on access, but that one was complicated involved making changes through the entire code base; Now, with policykit, it might be possible (restrictions from internet; but when older; only allowed to go to certain sites, namely school; no im, etc, etc, etc).

Also, I was taking a profile approach to this via the kuser. That would allow an series of profiles to be downloaded based on the distro (apps vary). Far easier to do that than manage it for several kids.

Amazing app, something long missing from Linux! Microsoft finally built their equivalent into Windows with Vista/7.

Would it be possible in a later version to restrict given programs to specific hours: for example no Age of Empires (through WINE) at 6:30 in the morning? :-)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
