Ok, I have been working on some more improvements to the Dansguardian GUI.

I have added the following.

Status Indicator for Dansguardian (Enabled/Disabled) and Firefox Proxy Settings (Locked/Unlocked)
The Disable Dansguardian button will now completely disable Dansguardian for the entire system instead of just for Firefox.
Progress Bar for saving the changes. This was requested since the previous GUI took a few seconds to take effect.
Cleaned up and tweaked some of the code.I have attached a screenshot of what I have got so far.

Jereme,

I'm thinking that it might be best to leave off the "user" buttons. As I mentioned in another thread (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=344386) there is not a chance at present to get user authentication running with tinyproxy.

The rest is looking great!!

Yes, I agree. Thanks for your efforts in finding the answer!

I am very sorry that this is totally off topic, however I really like the way that you have the GNOME tool bar at the bottom set up.... I have the default set up and would like to have something similar to what you have with the START button, and the quick icons... and so on.... Could you give me a link to a how to or something so that I can change mine. Thanks :guitar:

Hi mhancoc7. I like the improvements in Dan`s guardian GUI but I have one question.

I have a ĘguestĘ account in my computer (I let others in my family use my computer when the family`s Windoze PC gets overwhelmed in malware) and I though in installing Dansguardian to keep my younger family members from watching questionable content (and also to prevent those nasty JavaScript scams that catch your browser and dump you in porn sites from getting me off guard) but I use tor with privoxy to make my Mac stealth on the web and wanted to ask. Is possible to run both tor/privoxy and dansguardian together? If not which one is best to keep (I would like to have both naughtyness blocking and anonymity in my Mac)?

Thanks for your kind words. I recently tested running them together and from what I can recall the filtering did not work with privoxy running and vice versa. I did not test very extensively. As far as which is better to run, I guess it depends on your needs. There may be a way to get them to run together, but I am not sure about how to do it.

God Bless, Jereme
