ubuntu restricted shell with lshell

lshell is a restricted shell, similar to rssh or ironbars, which you can use to restrict users shell. but rssh only allow scp/sftp and does not allow login to shell. lshell allow login, but restrict user to only few commands.
i tested this with my ubuntu perfect webserver setup. but i believe it's same steps to install on any linux.
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/lshell/lshell/0.9.5/lshell-0.9.5.tar.gz
tar xvfz lshell-0.9.5.tar.gz
sudo python setup.py install
chsh -s /usr/bin/lshell RESTRICTEDUSERNAME

o, btw. it python script. so make sure python is installed.
that's it.
simple, fast, easy.

after that, edit /etc/lshell.conf to configure lshell to suite your need.
the most important (for me) is the allowed and forbidden list of commands.

openSuse + Koffice2 + OOo3 + Kontact PIM = Office Konnect Linux

looking for the perfect linux desktop for office use?
so did i.

lucky me, i have access to susestudio. that allow me easily customize openSuse as i like it.

so far, i built openSuse lxde livecd, which is the linux minimal desktop that only have lxde and firefox. this one i use for most every computer i can put it on. then, add up apps that i need.
then from this, i made up kidSuse. the linux for kids. this is the one my kids (from 2yrs to 6yrs) are playing and learning with, everyday.

but i still missing something...
for office use, i can start with minimal desktop. but there's too much to add and when the internet slowing down, it could takes hours downloading all the packages...

so here's the Office Konnect distro for my own use. or if it suite you, it's free to take.

what's inside? the latest (preferred, stable) version of these apps:
  • OpenOffice.org
  • Koffice
  • Kontact (KDE PIM) and all its components
  • konqueror, kopete, okular, k3b, kde-utils, etc
  • wine
well, because there're so many kde apps, i just use the kde desktop instead of other lightweight options.

that's all i can think of for my office use.
anything missing? critics, comments, suggestions are all welcome.
