Summary help replacing me
Some tools and methods for parental control, protecting and limiting children's activity on the computer.

Timekpr

Homepage: https://launchpad.net/timekpr

Package: timekprAUR

This program will control the computer usage of your user accounts. You can limit their daily usage based on a timed access duration and configure periods of day when they can log in. The program consist of a daemon which supervises the time allowed for any user, and a client in the traybar, that warns the users about their time running out. Administration is done in a graphical GTK GUI.

Logkeys

Homepage: http://code.google.com/p/logkeys/

Package: logkeys-svnAUR (The -svn version is recommended. It is stable and includes the latest patch that allows logkeys to work in Archlinux)

This program logs every keypress into a logfile for later inspection. It runs as daemon. The logfile by default resides in /var/log, but it is recommended to move it to an encrypted partition as it will contain every password ever entered in the system. For supervision purposes I recommend using the --no-func-keys option. Also there is some keymaps in the logkeys-keymap-svnAUR package, use them with the --keymap option, this is necessary to log the keys properly if you use a localized non US keyboard.

Whitelist with Tinyproxy and Firehol

The following description will enable you to filter any user's access to the internet with a whitelist of url-s using firehol and tinyproxy (or tinyproxy-gitAUR).

/etc/tinyproxy/tinyproxy.conf consists of the following changes:

FilterURLs On
FilterDefaultDeny Yes
Filter "/etc/tinyproxy/whitelist"

/etc/tinyproxy/whitelist should hold the url's that will be only allowed accessed by selected users. A silly example:

(www|wiki|static).archlinux.org
google.com

/etc/firehol/firehol.conf should contain the following line:

transparent_proxy "80 443" 8888 "nobody root bin myaccount"

where myaccount is my account that should no be filtered by Tinyproxy.
