    I'll test it later.

    After a few days, I'll let you know.

    My kids will be so pleased,

    According to this Natty binaries do not work on Oneiric.

    It is running.

    It requires that you use gdm rather than lightdm

    Obviously I can not say whether it works until either the kids use their alloted time or it kicks them off when it should. And then lets them back in.

    I can happily confirm that timekpr is frustrating my kids as it always has.

    Every aspect is working with oneiric.

    Unfortunately notifications do not work, which frustrates my daughter.

    This is how I got timekpr to work in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric:

    (Note that the timekpr icon and notification do not work, which is frustrating for the kids, but the accounts do expire as required. To get the full timekpr functionality for the kids, you need to switch to gnome desktop. Maybe a kind user can step us through doing that.)

    1. Install the gdm login screen

    Open the terminal and enter

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gdm
    2. Activate the gdm login screen

    Select gdm from the ensuing menu that appears after gdm gets installed.

    If you already have gdm installed, use the following terminal command to set it current:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm
    3. Add the timkpr repository to your sources

    Now if you don't have timekpr installed yet, open the terminal again and add the timekpr repository to your software sources:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:timekpr-maintainers/ppa
    sudo apt-get-update
    4. Install timekpr

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install timekpr
    Or install timekpr from Software Sources

    5. Run timekpr from an administrator account

    Either search for timekpr in the Unity search (bleahh!) or start timekpr from the terminal:

    Code:
    sudo timekpr
    6. Test timekpr

    You must have a non-administrator account set up for your children. timekpr will let you set time limits for non-administrator accounts. Set an account to have 1 minute of time. Apply, exit, log out, and log in to the child's account. Within 3 minutes the account should be automatically logged off. If you want the child to have a timekpr icon and notifications, you will need to switch your Ubuntu desktop to Gnome (maybe a kind user can provide a step-through of how to install and switch to gnome for the children).
