View Full Version : [ubuntu] Restricting certain types of software installs

December 21st, 2008, 06:26 PM
Hi all. I switched to Ubuntu about six months ago and have loved it. The aspect I have enjoyed most is probably the package system and the ease with which I can just "apt-get" and have a great new piece of software on my system. The problem comes in with a certain problem that I have personally: I have a moderate to severe addiction to computer games (not a joke), and it's just way too easy for me to reinstall whatever game I'm currently craving. I considered just giving my wife root access, but I need to do administrative tasks while she's not around. Is there any way I can restrict certain applications or, better yet, categories of applications? I know this is an odd request, but it would be a huge help for me. Thanks.
