Over on launchpad, I’ve released version 1.4 of the lab-session-manager, included in this release is:
- Bug fixes for administrators and other infinate time periods
- Uses gnome’s SessionManager API to logout instead of SIGKILL
- Pauses a logout until logging of logout event has completed
- Correctly logs methods of logging out (session timeout, logoff button, off switch)
You can get your hands on the PPA and give it try here: DoctorMo’s Greeter PPA, Let me know what you think below in the comments.
I’m pleased to release a new version of the lab session manager.
The Lab Session Manager is a indicator which times how long you can be on the computer for, notifies you when you’re running out of time and then logs you off when your time is over. It replaces the old and unmaintained timed functionality with a modern, gtk based system tray icon and logging functionality for generating reports about who is using the computer for how long. See previous blog post here.
This version includes a successful upgrade of the code to python modualisation which will help future bug fixing. plus a big upgrade to the logging functionality to allow logs to be read back and sorted and reported on. New reporting mechanisms are in the works for the next version too.
You can find this release’s ppa here or the source packages in the above link. Please give the PPA time to build everything.
The next release should also include more fixes and some custom icons, so we can guarentee the style and design of the dialogs no matter what theme you’re using.
If you find any bugs, please report them in launchpad here.
