Letting and don't letting students modify certain things.

Postby glore2002 on Tue Jul 15, 2008 5:06 am

Hi back!

As I am a teacher and since I am starting to install Linux (Mint) at school, I would like to be able to let and don't let users (students) do certain things. For instance, How can I deny access to modifying things such as screen resolution, wallpapers, setting some system settings, etc. to my students? This would be very useful to me.

Thank you,
Glore2002.-

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

When you set up new users using the 'Users and Groups' control panel in the Control Center, you can control what a user can and can't do using the 'User Priviliges' tab.
