Netscape only session for guest
I would like to have a guest account that starts Netscape when the guest logs in and that automatically logs off when Netscape is closed.

It would also be very nice that the program Netscape could not be minimized or that other programs could be started.

What you could try to do is edit your /home/guest/.xinitrc file, so that it only have the line "netscape". It more or less worked with me. It probebly needs some tweeking

thank you for the information but it did not work for me. I have tried it, there was no .xinitrc, I have created one but it seems to be ignored.


I have chmod it to a+wrx
I am using gnome+ximian.

What I am doing wrong?
