Web Filtering

Postby rcdeacon on Sat Mar 08, 2008 8:23 am

I installed dansguardian in an attempt to control web access but I cannot find it in the menu and apparently it is not working. I installed using the "package manager" in the Mint menu. I tried to reboot all to no avail. Is there something else that needs to be done? It installed with a bunch of dependencies including clamav but that is not in the menu either. Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thanks for the reply. This may sound like a dumb question, but shouldn't all that configure stuff have happened when I installed from the repository?

Not all software can automatically configure it self, some need user input. And sometimes the developers focus their attention to other features..
