Dont know about gnome per se but you can use chroot/jails to restrict users to see only stuffs you want them to see for any environment. Just build the chroot and copy over the gnome-specific binaries to its chrooted-equivalent (copy or link /usr/bin/gnome-panel to /home/chrooted/johndoe/usr/bin/gnome-panel). I do not know of any tools that does this automatically and also I do not know how gdm will work out. e.g - Normal /home/johndoe/ | |___ .bashrc |___ .sig chrooted /home/chroot/johndoe/ | |__ bin/ |__ usr/ -- en0f _______________________________________________ WOW this sure seems to be over kill putting each user in a jail. There must be some other way at the user id level or from gnome it self to do this. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
