How to create an Ubuntu LOCKED & EMPTY DESKTOP
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide!
I need to create an Ubuntu PC that has NO ICONS, NO TOOL-BARS, NO HOT-KEYS, etc. In other words; after it boots it only presents a background and provided NO ACCESS to ANYTHING WHATSOEVER IN ANY POSSIBLE WAY.
The intention is to run one or more programs at STARTUP, and have those programs be the ONLY THINGS accessible.
I need to know how to have Ubuntu hand over to my program any events related to communication ports: USB (all device types), Serial (if any), Firewire (if any), PS/2 KB (if any), PS/2 Mouse (if any), CD/DVD & flash-card reader (if any).
The intention is to prevent Ubuntu from allowing normal operations of those devices, and instead pass the events to a program that would handle or drop those communications on its own.
AS YOU CAN SEE, THIS WOULD BE A LOCKED MACHINE THAT IS COMPLETELY DEDICATED TO ONE SET OF TASKS AND WHICH CAN NOT BE EASILY DISTURBED VIA COMMUNICATION PORTS OR REGULAR DEVICES, UNLESS THE ATTENTION REQUESTED IS SPECIFICALLY EXPECTED BY THE CONTROLLING PROGRAM.
