    Question Restrict Login Access Times for son.

    I'm setting up my son's computer with Ubuntu 12.04. He has a tendency to install a lot of stupid stuff on the computer with windows. So i've went this route. I need to control the times that he is online.

    At the end of /etc/security/time.conf I placed this line:

    According to what I've read this should only allow him to login during the time frames listed there.

    I updated my etc/pam.d/login to include:

    account required

    No matter how I tinker around with these settings he is still able to login. Any help on where to go. Nanny doesn't want to work for 12.04

    The magazine Linux Format issue 172 from July had a detailed article on how to set that up. The article is "Child's Play: Setting Limits" and starts on page 90. Check your library for paper copies.
