Setiing up user for a cyber caffe


Hello

We are a small non profit organisation and are now opening a cyber caffe.

We are experiencing some problems with the user administration. We want to cofigure the cyber user with just some program permissions.

Could anyone help please.

Thx

Create a user, make him a part of a group and give the programs permission to be run as that group. It should work. I don't really get, what you are trying to do. So if you could describe a little more, it would be nice.

i'd expect he/she wants the user to only be able to access Firefox or w/e and nothing else.
