I want to remove access to the control center for my users as I do not want them going in there and changing visual appearances like themes, wallpaper, screensaver etc etc (am using KDE). Doing an 'ls' gives me the following information.
ls -al /usr/bin | grep kcontrol
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 42920 2007-05-18 05:42 kcontrol
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3196 2007-05-18 05:42 kcontroledit
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2007-09-28 10:22 kinfocenter -> kcontrol
Now I admit i am not a Linux expert. Would the easiest way to do this simply be to change the permissioning on kcontrol to 754 and removing access from Kmenu do the trick? Are there any implications of doing this?
If i ever needed the control center I could simply 'su' to root and then launch it via the command line.
