Re: How to set up password protection for specific applications?
well, this is one way -- but note that anyone who knows what he/she is doing can reverse this really easy...
for each program (I'm using the terminal for example):
append "gksu " without quotes to the "Exec" line. That will prompt for a password now, but it will also run as root -- that might not work for the network preferences and some other apps. Maybe just set up a guest account, and enable auto screen locking?
cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-terminal.desktop ~/.local/applications/
to reverse the above: remove the file(s) you copied into .local/share/applications, in my example above the file is gnome-terminal.desktop
