So you're not automatically recording terminal sessions then, you want to record desktop sessions. This has nothing to do with bash. But your attitude stinks so goodbye.
X-Windows has nothing to do with this. This is strictly bash. And I don't think my attitude stinks.
My company sells hardware with our software installed. We provide shell access to the users in case they need to configure stuff that isn't handled by the web interface.
We want to collect all screen output of the users logins and interaction with the shell and store it to a file so that it can be looked at in case something goes wrong and we suspect they did something they should not have.
It has to be automated. Screenshots aren't going to cut it.
you can always remote login as root
No, that isn't going to work either.
It would be nice to get a answer to my question regarding the use of script. Does anybody know how to turn it on when a user logs in without their knowledge? We're not trying to be sneaky here. We simply want to avoid users calling in and asking questions like "what does script started mean"?
