This is not a request for which distro (I intend to use arch + openbox as that's the setup I'm familiar with), but rather which tools can help me accomplish the following:
I want to set up my sister's laptop so she can:
- safely surf the web
- watch movies / youtube
learn / practice
3.2 10 finger typing
listen to music and audiobooks
The catch is that I have to
- budget her time. She is only allowed 2h/day of 1)+2)
she should be able to "earn" more time via 3) or by doing sports/ going for a walk. There also should be a way to give her "vouchers" she can use to top up her time-budget. The time-budget should be split into two accounts: The daily(not used time is lost) and the earned (persistent but total amount that can be used per day should be limited)
The whole system has to be maintained remotely, as I no longer live at home and nobody else cares or has the skills.
Research / Ideas so far:
So for (1) I will go through these tools (user experiences would be appreciated): https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ParentalControls
(2) VLC will do for DVD, but a "one-click" DVD ripper would be great so she does not have to carry a bunch of DVDs around (and its also quite noisy having the DVD in the drive)
(3.1) I thought about installing a second browser which can be used for duolingo only.
(3.2) I have no Idea which program is suitable to provide motivation and ease of use...
(4) this should not take time from her budget. Easy mp3-ripping would be great.
(5 + 6) That's the main question for me. I know there must be a way to log and limit program running time but that's totally out of my league right now.
(7) Remote access using
ssh or preferably a telegram-bot which is hard-coded to only communicate with me.
For programming solutions lets assume I have basic knowledge of Java and I aspire to learn Python.
