  1. Can I install Nenny on Ubuntu? And ( :-S ) on Windows, in my Job PC ?

  2. I have just installed Mint Linux 12 on an old PC and am trying to make it ready for use by my kids. I have installed nanny, but when I try to start the Nanny console, I get nothing at all after I put my password in.

    I have tried at the command prompt and get the following errors:

    $ nanny-admin-console
    /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nanny/client/common/Utils.py:33: GtkWarning: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated
    object.xml.add_from_file (main_ui_filename)
    /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nanny/client/common/Utils.py:54: FutureWarning: This search is broken in 1.3 and earlier, and will be fixed in a future version. If you rely on the current behaviour, change it to ‘.//object’
    for obj in xml.findall (‘//object’):
    uid: 1000, name: simon, user_name:

    Any thoughts?

  3. I don’t think you can import the blacklist database, it stuck every time I try to import it after downloading. Never works!
