    Yes. I haven't actually used it in 12.04, but I tested it in beta and everything seemed to work (except known bug with "Force logoff", which should not be turned on by now, I hope to apply the patch any time soon).

    Thanks a lot for the response. I have installed it from the PPA but when I start the programme it's locked and I cannot unlock it. When I click on the unlock button and enter my password nothing happens and it always says YOu don't have admin privileges (although I have) and clicking on the unlock button does not have any effect.

    Code:
    TypeError in get_chore_settings():list indices must be integers, not str

    Re: Gnome Nanny

    OK, I have purged nanny and installed it again and it seems to work. Thanks a lot, Guido. So it's not possible to have a systray icon? I'd like to have a notification like 5 min before it should end the session to make sure that my daughter can save anything she was doing. Is it possible to have?

    Actually there is a notification service, when you run nanny-systray (you can put it into autostart programs list). If there is actual systray in the system (i.e. LXDE or GNOME 2 or similar) it will be used too. Otherwise (i.e. in Unity) it only displays notification if certain amounts of time is remaining (like 30 min, 15 min, 5 min and 3 min, 2 min, 1 min).

    I think you have to reboot in order to make nanny work properly after first install. I'm not sure why.

    How did you purge it? I uninstalled using synaptic (complete removal) but some configuration file still remains and I can't get rid of the "get_chore_settings" error.

    Re: Gnome Nanny

    Is there a version for 12.10 available? I know that the project is essentially dead and there is no alternatives (I guess developers’ kids have grown up and they do not need it any more ).

    Most people use a service such as opendns rather then maintain black lists personally.

    The problem with all these services is that nothing replaces parenting.

    No two people can agree 100 % on what should or should not be blocked.

    In additions new servers pop up faster then black lists can be updated, etc.

    Good luck to you.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
