    Nanny Parental Controls

    Hello guys,

    I am new to this forum, but so happy to join you!

    I have just installed Lubuntu 11.04 in my old PC and yeah it rocks! I have even wrote a blog about it (in spanish, sorry): http://www.aratic.es/wordpress/como-...con-lubuntu-i/

    Uptadating to 11.10 was a bit boring because too many download breaks, but it is done right now.

    BUT what I would like to ask you all is: have you tried to start parental control program NANNY? Console doesn't even show up.

    Thank you in advance for your answer and regards,

    Vicente

    Ty so much for your answer, and yeah there is where it is.

    Have you tried to click on it to see what happens? In my PC the answer is "nothing".

    I would be grateful if you could feedback again.

    In fact I just did and you are right, it does nothing but no worries, I do have Ubuntu 11.04 installed so I'm going to reboot my machine now and try it there. Will let you know

    Re: Nanny Parental Controls

    I couldn't get "nanny" to work with Lubuntu but it did actually work on Ubuntu. I must do some search and see what's wrong.

    A friend has told me about another option but PLEASE be informed that the project is dead and no longer supported. I don't recommend to use dead projects but it's your call.

    I'll get back to you once I'll find something new

    OP mentioned Scrubit, I have used OpenDNS' free solution for quite a few years with great success.

    http://www.opendns.com/home-solutions/parental-controls

    The names and IP addresses of sites change daily; using a third party service like this keeps it updated up in the cloud. You have a dashboard and make the changes you want, then let it work for you.

    All done at the router, no messing with various systems.
    The future will soon be a thing of the past.

    Re: Nanny Parental Controls

    This may come a bit late, but I got this from a post here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/nanny/+bug/877318

    Gnome Nanny seems to be failing because it requires gdm. To get Nanny running in Lubuntu, install gdm in the terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gdm
    When presented with the option for configuration, go ahead and stick with lxdm.

    This seems to have let it run on my installation this morning.
