Ubuntu 8.10 Beta Video – Using Guest Session

Guest session is a new feature for the Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex Linux desktop. Guest session allows users to use the user-switcher applet to select, a password-less account for a guest to use. This account will not allow them to permanently save any files or open administrative options. Now you can use Ubuntu’s guest session and loan your computer to a friend or let a classmate check their email, worry-free. This video on the Ubuntu 8.10 guest session shows how to change to a guest session from a regular user account on the Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex desktop.

    Video did not show logging back into a new guest session to see if:

    A) NO urls or other stuff were saved in FireFox?

    B) if a totally new guest session could be started (nothing hanging around at all from a previous guest)

    C) If you can go directly into guest from the Boot Screen Login (without going to change user).

    This guest feature will be a killer for Libraries if it operates in a Kiosk Mode as the guest, and does not allow for a hangover of files or any evidence of any prior guest session use as each new guest logs in.

    I’m sorry the video was so brief, you bring up a some good points.

    A)When I restarted new guest could no see URLS from previous guest

    B)Seems to be a totally new guest as long as your log out completely

    C)No, i did not see where you can enter as a guest through the boot screen, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible.

    Whatever methods we use to teach skills and knowledge at the professional stage involve us in many assumptions about how we learn professional skills, knowledge and values, what we learn and why, and what we expect students and trainees to do with that learning. ,
