As a follow up to the kids-friendly OS article, is there any chance of an article on Parental controls, specifically things like setting up a whitelist for browsers, or using Gnome Nanny or similar?

Cheers.

Hi Heiowge,

By spooky coincidence (or perhaps I can read your mind) I just finished a feature on parental controls for LXF 166, mostly focusing on DansGuardian. It explains how to set up web filtering by page content and URL, and also whitelists.

I wanted to include Gnome Nanny as well, but it appears to be dead now and doesn't work on Gnome 3 distros...

Mike

Fair enough. Thanks.

As it happens though, they're doing a Gnome 2 based distro atm (Mint 11) Laughing But as I am considering switching to Mint 13 with MATE on them, do you know if Nanny works there?
