Can I limit time a user can be logged in ?


Is there a way that I can ration or limit the time each user can be logged in during a given time period. For example user A can only use the computer for 1 hour each 24 hours, user B can use unlimited, etc.



Thanks

Do demonstrate that you have searched LQ. As I read your question, LQ puts a wee box thing of similar threads at the bottom of the page. I see:
Limit time for a user per day
... using the shadow suite of password tools, YaST in SUSE, or a script run as a cron job.
set daily time limit for being logged into machine?
... using pam
