I have a client with very little money and very old machines, needing to set up some kiosk machines so his employees can access one (and only one) website. I suggested it might be possible to use Unbunto Linux and be able to put something together for him. I downloaded the latest distro of Ubunto with the Unity interface, and began trying to remove all the things we didnt need. Im at a loss on how to further restrict the permissions of the standard kiosk user account I created though. There are some guidelines on the net back when we had Gnome, but what about with Unity?
