In Windows xp, I use deep freeze, a very useful software, and I wonder if there is any equivelant tool for ubuntu available, that does the same?Deep freeze restores the computer, back to how it was, everytime you reboot. This means that any virus, trojan and stuff cannot do anything, I even don't need to use any antivirus. When I want to install a new sotware, I first install it with deep freeze on, try the software, and if satisfied and decided to perminantly install it, I ask deep freeze to be disabled in the next reboot, to install the new software perminantly. I can also setup one or more
I want to set up a Linux lab in a Jr/ Sr high school and I need a Linux equivalent to Windows Steady State or Deep Freeze (or similar). I've searched and found nothing. Is additional software necessary or is this something built-in? If yes, how do I utilize it?BTW- I'm planning on using ZenWalk on the laptops and Ubuntu or Fedora on the desktops.
My company is currently evaluating/pilotting this software to possibly remove all virus software (definition based 3 day instead of 0 day protection) from our corporate users.If you read more about the software you will see it has merit to help get rid of these issues with spyware, viruses and other stuff except for java and macro but updates can usually take care of those for you.Here is the deal the freeze x does not allow anything to install on your computer except from an approved media that you put in the settings. If you want to download something and install it you first have to turn fr

Thanks for your help on this one. I'm new to Ubuntu and the whole open source field.I have been tasked with building a completely secure web access station for a young person's home. The base OS is intended to be 9.04/10 Ubuntu. Can you suggest Open Source alternatives to Deep Freeze & Net Nanny? These two app's would appear to be the basis of a solid system with security as the prime concern.Unfortunately, netnanny.com suggests that only Microsoft is compatible. Is the Open Source model compatible with software that requires a maintained database and updates?Thanks again. Love the whole c
Just read the closed thread "Hard drive recovery and cryogenics..." and wondering if freezing might help recover a camera 2GB Lexar Flash drive. I successfully took and stored several hundred pictures on a Kodak digital camera in .jpg format. Replaced batteries after getting "Battery Exhausted" alert, and when I turned the camera back on, got "Disk is Not Formatted" :-( The camera continues to function with RAM and another Flash Drive.These pictures are the sole record of a once in a lifetime visit to wife's relatives. FWIW, camera was being used in a tropical env

We have deep freeze running on one of our computers at school with 6 gig hard drives and all of it is reserved for windows. The thawspace is 1 gig and is part of the windows partition. We want to install linux without removing deep freeze. If that isn't possible...any suggestions on how to bypass deep freeze within windows?
There is a program called deep freeze, by faronics. Dot com for their website. What the program does is when you turn it on, a user can install, delete, infect do whatever they want and when you reboot everything is the way it was before they logged on. There are versions of deep freeze for Windows, Mac, and Linux. However the only linux version is for SUSE.I was wondering if there were a way to setup ubuntu to setup a user, with the programs and settings that you want that would basically do the same thing. Reset everything on a reboot. This would be used in a public computer environment.

I'd like to make an open-source version of a program called "Deep Freeze".Basically it prevents users from making permanent changes to a computer.Convenient for computers in libraries, public places, ...You can still do pretty much anything with the computer, but as soon as you reboot it, all changes have gone.So, I was thinking of going about it this way;1) monitor each harddrive, when a change is made log it to a hidden file2) at startup, read the logfile, reverse allI know this is a bit simple (and the log file poses a security gap), but it's a good start.I cannot find any way to

I run a 27 system lab for a school K-8th and all my computers just got replaced so I need to re-install Ubuntu. Kindergartners continiously accidentally delete desktop icons or make new folders, the higher grade levels are just malicious. Deep freeze was installed on the windows partition and I'm impressed with the ability to still install new programs when I need to and still lock out permanent changes by students. What is the best option for Ubuntu?

Does anyone know a Shadow User / Deep Freeze alternative for Linux? I need a program that will save the state of the system and automatically restore it on each part. We have Shadow User installed on our Windows partition, but that does not cover Linux. Since we have a computer center with lots of little kids, things can go wrong if a simple restart doesn't fix everything.
I have sent a 6.06 LiveCD to a friend, and he installed it on separate partition of win box. When he went back to win, he found that he could not uninstall Deep Freeze. I am not familiar with Deep Freeze, but it seems that Deep Freeze needs to be stopped before uninstallation. However, he can not stop it. Any help?
guys, I installed Deep Freeze yesterday and it did install properly. I was able to turn it on or off and it worked normally on the XP side of the machine. But when I switch to Ubuntu, it won't boot up. Hangang term windo lang asking for a command. Not sure kung dahil ito sa Deep Freeze but when I uninstalled Deep Freeze I was able to go to ubuntu normally. Wonder why it has that effect. Any Ideas?

I had a problem with GIMP, that if I used a tool such as a pen, it left a green trail over the image. I was given a link to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=487670and the result was i had to type(show-brush-outline no)into the gimprc file, that worked, but unfortunatly i now cant see any outline to the brush - meaning i cant do detailed work because I cant see exactly how wide the tool i am using will be - just its location.Also when using other tools such as the path tool I get the green lines, so GIMP is useless for me at the moment.Has anyone encountered this, or anyone willing to

I have a program called Deep Freeze 5 produced by farconics that saves the state of my Microsoft Windows computers such that when the computer reboots, the original set up (at time of freeze) returns on the next boot. I want to setup Ubuntu on several of the computer labs in my department, but I don't want to have to tinker with the setups repetitiously. If anyone out there is familiar with the product DeepFreeze, can someone point me to a similar software package for ubuntu?
HelloI am not sure what type of software program I am needing, but I would like to find a program that requires a login ID and Password, that will record how long the user is on the computer, and then when they log-off their session, a print command pops up that will display their time and calculate an invoice based on the price per minute charge.I just want to be able to charge by the minute, without having to manualy time customers.Any and all ideas welcome.Oh, Yeah, I am also looking for a good Deep Freeze Program.
At our public school on windows platforms we have installed deep freeze or clean slate for restoring data and configuration on system restart.Do exist any software for doing that on SUSE exept deep freeze linux?Maybe an opensource for linux.
I am looking for a way to "backup" a computer in such a way that I can break things and then have others fix them for practice. But this still needs to be a working workstation.Deep Freeze is similar to what I had in mind, but not exactly. I want to be able to take a "snapshot" of my hard drive, and then restore that exact snapshot at a later date if need be. I understand this would half the effective size of my hard drive, but this method would prove the most effective.It is not really a "backup" program, but a way to quickly restore a computer to a slightly olde
I have always disabled that feature in WinXP, but some use it, and in an environment where you have PC's that are configured correctly, and you want them to stay that way (a school or library for instance) there are software packages (Deep Freeze is one - http://www.faronics.com/html/deepfreeze.asp ) that remove anything added or changed upon reboot.Is there anything in Ubuntu for that?
Searching for software with scanning, text/graphic editing, etc. functionsI have been using PaperPort for a prolonged time, which is a proprietary software running on M$Windows, mainly for scanning text documents.

It also has simple graphic editing function. Books can be re-binded, i.e their pages can reallocated, such as page 1 shifted to page 10,

There was a program I used to use in Ubuntu, but I can't recall the name. It was DVDsomething or SomethingDVD I think. It allowed me to copy a commercial dvd onto my computer in whatever format I wanted. I could also use it to create a dvd iso image using videos of any format. Additionally it could compress the video files and fit a large amount of video onto an iso for burning to a dvd. Anyone know the name of the software or have any recommendations for a similar software?
This question could well apply to any computing environment but as I'm using Ubuntu (10.04) ....I'm no power user but I recently installed a newer power supply, mostly for it's slightly better efficiency rating. It's the kind with multiple fan speeds and it increases cooling proportionally to the load being drawn.So I've noticed, whilst using the standard "movie player" in full screen the power supply fan speeds up significantly, so much so that I need to increase the volume of whatever i'm watching. However, if I watch the same file in VLC no such fan speed up occurs. Now I realise

I have recently tried a piece of software for the Windows collection of OS's and one feature in it impressed me, and I was wondering if something has a similar feature on Ubuntu.Foobar (http://www.foobar2000.org) is a media player, similar to iTunes in many respects. The feature I like is that it can read music from an archived file (for instance, in a .zip file). This has the potential of clearing up a lot of space on one's hard drive. I have not tested it out, since I am running a virtual machine on Ubuntu, and if I can't play the music in both systems, then there's no reason to have it, I f
