desktop permissions? you mean something like KIOSK?

KIOS is the more overrated tool, it is limited to KDE desktop and KDE applitions, it is ok for internet cafes, but for enterprices, never.

it is overrated BECAUSE it is limited for KDE? now there's a statement. i guess you can think what i'd love to say, huh? about someting just being behind on this... and just because it was sooo easy to build this for KDE... anyway, i agree there should be a freedesktop.org standard. i'm not sure about how gnome organized their config system, but if it's half as efficient as KDE's, it won't be very difficult to add support for gnome apps to KIOSK.

Maybe you should uncerstand that you can lanch a console that is not "Konsole" and launch avery application you want that is not a KDE appl. and btw, in the world of the enterprice, there is a lot more than just KDE apps, a lot, solutions an enterprise needs an KDE doenes have won't be controled for KIOSK, so, KIOS is just the overrated tool trolls like you use to try to look smart.
