    Account Lease time - Timekeeper Developement

    Tonight was the acid test at my house. The wife called me while I was at work and wanted to extend the time allowed for one of the kids. I walked her through the "Disable Limits Today" use from the desktop launcher and it was perfect.

    She was very pleased. Tomorrow will be a good day

    I spoke too soon. There was confusion over the way the buttons work and she ended up clicking Apply which gave him unlimited use. See what you think about this idea:

    1. Change the "Reward" button to read "Apply Reward"
    2. Change the "Disable limits today" button to "Release Boundaries"
    3. Change the "Quit" button to read "Exit"
    4. Change the "Apply" button to read "Apply Limits/Boundaries"


    Or some similar wording. If it's able to load the previous settings for each user as you mentioned, that would prevent someone from accidently granting unlimited access by in inadvertently clicking the Apply button too.

    The "Wife test" is a though one. I think we did well!

    I will have a look at changing the wording on the buttons. 1. and 2. is easy and good ideas, 3. and 4, I don't know. Those are GTK standard buttons and can have the icons. Reading the settings is probably a better idea. I will have a look at it!

    On the subject of wording: Is limits/boundaries good words to use? As I am not a native English/American speaker I think you might come up with a better solution than me.

    Don't bother with 3 / 4 then. Wording of Limits / Boundaries... Seems that Boundaries might be polished up a bit, but I'll have to think on that one.

    Oh my! That would be cool! But I do not think it is ready for prime time yet. It is still a bit rough around the edges and things will probably change a lot.

    That said, inclusion in Ubuntu would be great!

    Re: Account Lease time / Content filtering

    It would be better in launchpad, in case a lot of developers take interest in this, you could see who's adding what part of code:
    https://code.launchpad.net/

    Bazaar (the version control system) has a 5-minute-tutorial to get you started
    http://doc.bazaar-vcs.org/bzr.dev/en...ial/index.html

    I've looked at the script & GUI, it's great!

    By the way, you have the path "/usr/bin/" in the GUI's .py file for the other "parts" of timekpr - remove them, that way it will read the script in the current directory

    Also, you look in /home/ for users. You could make something in python out of this bash script:
    Code:
    cat /etc/passwd | cut -d: -f 1,3,6 | grep '1[0-9][0-9][0-9]\|5[0-9][0-9]' | grep "/home" | cut -d: -f1
    (It creates a user list of UserIDs 1000+, default for Ubuntu, or 500+,default for Fedora)

    I guess you could also use:
    Code:
    cat /etc/passwd | cut -d: -f 1,3,6 | grep "/home" | cut -d: -f1
    ..to get all users with "home", but that can include users created by the system, like syslog

    Also, can you set in the notification message the time left to be in minutes instead of seconds?

    I have also written a guide for Bazaar, here at the forums. It may be useful:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=916132

    Start a new project at Launchpad and then you can use bazaar for uploading the source. Then the community can maintain it, and eventually it may get in a version of ubuntu

    OK

    Launchpad project is found at https://launchpad.net/timekpr.

    I never used bazaar before so I might have done something wrong, but I think I got it! At least the code is in launchpad. Also I never used launchpad for a project before so this is all new to me.

    I will try to make some updates soon.
