#130 Fedora with Parental Controls
Closed: scheduled 6 months ago by glb. Opened 6 months ago by rlengland.

Article Summary:
A guide on how to set up multiple users and parental controls. In it, I will exclusively focus on Desktop & GUI solutions, so that young parents don’t have to deal with the horrors of an Active Directory with SSSD.

I’ll also discuss the importance of Flatpaks (who actually support most of the parental-control logic), the benefits, and limitations of such a system.

Article Description:

  • Users and permissions
    • Creating users
    • Admin rights
  • Application Control
    • Configuration
    • Daily use
  • Compromises and limitations
    • Physical access
    • Fallout and bypasses
  • Summary

@eonfge: I see that your article is coming along quickly. Is it ready for publication?

@eonfge hey, it looks like there's an ongoing merge request to port Parental Control (Malcontent) to GTK 4: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pwithnall/malcontent/-/merge_requests/141.

Should we wait for the port to get merged so you can update the article, or do you want to publish right away?

@theevilskeleton Hey, thanks for bringing that to my attention. Right now, I think we should not wait for any future improvements. It would be better to publish now, and to return to the topic in a year. There will always be changes and it might always get better, but you run the risk of never publishing something because the next Fedora version will be even better!

Best to revisit a topic every now and then. I've done so before with Docker and Fedora, and in a year or so I would also like to write another Gaming on Fedora article, just to get people up-to-date information.

@glb Give me a bit longer. I want to do a few proof-reads on different days so that I can reconsider and shuffle some words around.

Well, I've done my part. I even have a nice image of an adult penguin and a chick because they look really cute and fit the theme.

Best luck going through it once more, and if you find anything, just let me know.

@eonfge Your image looks great. I'll start the editing. If all goes well I might get it ready for tomorrow (Wed 20 July) but at least by Fri 22 July.

@glb The image look very good but I note that while the aspect is the same as 1890x800 it isn't sized that way. It's 768 × 325. It's also a PNG. Do you think it matters or should I re-size it and convert to JPG?

@rlengland: I think it matters. Please make sure the cover images are the right size and format. Thanks!

@rlengland: BTW, the image is the right size.

You have to access the image via WordPress' media library to see the real/original size. If you just access the image through your browser, oftentimes WordPress will give you a processed/thumbnail image instead of the original.

FYI,

Well crud-nuts. @glb I should have thought of the thumbnail issue. But it is still flagged as a PNG so I'll convert it.
Conversion done
