Session limits to 1 hour per user?

I have been trying to figure this out but I dont have a correct conclusion. Here is the case: my wife keeps bugging me about my kids spending too much time in pc (aka pc usage).

I need to limit the usage to an hour per day JUST like they do in local libraries. How is the correct way to do in a linux desptop?

1. extra apps to install?
2. any online how-to's?
3. anything is greatly appreciate......thanks!

imdeemvp,
Did you ever find a solution to your original question? I would like to be able to limit certain users to a certain amount of time each day as well. Seems like there should be a script out there somewhere.....

Thanks

Why don't you put a shell script to be executed in their accounts. They won't know about it

Make it execute on startup and check the time every 5 minutes or so. Then, after an hour, call halt. Lol, crude, but effective.
