Please help me with zenity pop-ups!!!Locked
Hello to whom it may concern. My name is Chris. I just graduated from IT school. I have a matter on my hands that may require some attention. It’s an zenity problem in Gnome desktop. I’m doing a project at a non-profit organization that I’m volunteering for and I was put in charge of a dept. with a few computers and convert the Windows OS to Linux (Ubuntu) OS. Each computer would only have three users on them, 1)admin, 2) staff and 3)the frequent user from the community. I’m asked to put the computer on a timer and possibly have a pop-up window, before time is up,stating to the user that they have x amount of mins left. I’ve done everything, but the pop-up window. I’ve tried everything. One of the best resources that I got was Scott Kindley, http://skindley.wordpress.com/2006/12/11/fedora-core-6-controlling-logins-by-time/. At the bottom of the page he tries to explain zenity but it didn’t work for me. I didn’t know if it was an a Fedora thang or what. It didn’t work in Ubuntu. Then I tried a forum on SpiceWorks: http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/100632?page=1#entry-421824, here’s the convo on zenity. This should really interest you. lol! If someone could be so kind as to guild me in the right direction I would be so happy. I love learning and I don’t like it when people say things aren’t possible.
Hope to hear from you soon,
