PermittedHoursfield in the .desktop file spec. It would list the hours during which the program could be run. That's not just for kids, it's also for me, in the manner of LeechBlock:
Name=Some Program I Use For Work
Comment=But let's say I don't want to be tempted to spend all evening working on it
Comment=And I definitely shouldn't be playing this during work hours
I wonder how best we could do per-user settings, though.
My idea is to prevent launching the program during those hours. What would happen if the system saw the program was still running when the time had expired, I'm not sure. Maybe nothing, or maybe it would put up a notification telling me I have five minutes to quit or the process gets it.
I know nanny does some of this, but I wonder whether it's generally something that should exist in application launchers.
What do you think? Worth suggesting to them?
