Re: Gnome Nanny daemon not starting
Ah yes, Nanny. Here's what I've been able to gather. (My experience is with Ubuntu, not Lubuntu.)
The two PPAs that are returning error messages ended with Lucid (10.04). (Thus the error messages.)
They ended there because Canonical added Nanny to the repos with Maverick (10.10).
Then with Natty (11.04), Gnome was replaced with Unity, GDM was replaced with LightDM, and Nanny broke. Apparently, the maintainers overlooked a dependency needed to run the daemon (I haven't identified that dependency yet), but since that dependency was required by Gnome, it was installed by default in Ubuntu prior to 11.04. Simply installing Gnome seemed to solve that problem, even when Unity was in use. However, scheduling and limits to machine use still didn't seem to work, probably because of the change in Display Managers.
Unfortunately, because of the functionality problems, Canonical has since removed Nanny from the repos again. I haven't found any current PPAs with it, either. (Apparently, interest in parental controls has been declining in recent years.)
I'm guessing that manually installing the version from the 12.04 repos along with that missing dependency would get everything but the machine use limitations and scheduling back up and running. I'll do a little digging and see what I can find...
Jane, stop this crazy thing!
