Limit Times a User Can Use The Computer

Posted 10-29-2007 at 09:27 PM by w322

If you have children or teenagers, you might want to limit the times of day that they can use the computer. Here is how I did it:

To limit when the user can login, edit /etc/security/time.conf and add:
*; *; sammy; Al0630-2100

Kubuntu 7.10: During Boot Splash, Monitor Says 'Not Optimum Mode'

I installed Kubuntu 7.10 and during boot (after grub menu) the Samsung LCD monitor said 'Not optimum mode, recommended mode 1280 x 1024'. I have a Radeon video adapter and apparently usplash does not select a suitable resolution or refresh rate to match the monitor. After some searching I found this solution:

then run:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure usplash

So after I upgraded to Slackware 12 from 11, this strange problem arose with Eterm. I could use vim a couple of times, then thereafter it would not work. I'd type in the command, and the cursor would go to the next line and just sit there. I couldn't type in anything, couldn't even Ctrl-C out of it and would have to close the window. It would continue to behave this way until I rebooted. Other things such as the links browser would also not work, but text editing with elvis still functioned...
