How To Install Timekpr 0.3.5 (Open-Source Parental Control Software) On Ubuntu

As you may know, Timekpr is an open-source parental control software, allowing admins to choose when a computer can be used and when it cannot. The users’ daily usage can be limited in certain time intervals, accounts can be locked, etc.

The initial timekpr support has been dropped, the latest supported system being Ubuntu 11.10, but Eduards Bezverhijs has adopted the project, added a bunch of extras and made it available for the latest Ubuntu releases.

The latest version available is Timepkr 0.3.5, which has been recently updated.
