    Default How to restrict login times

    Hi,
    the only docs I found refer to console logins only. How can I restrict
    login times for certain users to KDE/gnome?

    I see a number of options:

    1- IIRC, you can do this through PAM modules. Check the pam-doc for details
    of the plugins/configuration.
    2- LUM, LUM, and more LUM!
    3- There are also 3rd-party products out there. Take a look at
    http://www.faronics.com/html/deepfreeze.asp.

    HTH!

    I just installed it and will start reading.

    What is LUM? IBM's license management software?

    It starts at 10 licenses -I need only one. It looks much more powerful
    than I would ever need...

    Sorry for the confusion here. LUM is 'Linux User Management' which is
    shipped with Novell's SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop. I monitor both
    forums, and mistakenly posted this as an option--it doesn't ship with
    OpenSuSE.

    Hello,

    Sory for interfeiring this conversation.

    I just wanna ask one question:

    Is there any way we one can get that LUM to work in openSuSE 10.x or 11?

    And if yes how can one get it? (Not through buying SLED or SLES)
    HP Pavilion dv6-2165tx
    Intel Core i5-430M Processor (2.26GHz, 3MB Cache)
    3GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Disk Drive
    Nvidia GeForce GT 230M 1 GB dedicated memory
    SimplyMepis, SuSE 9.2, openSuSE 10.2 /10.3/11.0/11.1/11.2 (x86-64).

    I think pam_time is what you are looking for. It's supposed to be able to restrict specified services, which I guess would be kdm or gdm.

    Never tried it myself, let us know if it works.
