an interesting question, which you may not have found and answer.

i do not know how this would work, and maybe some others can make some
further suggestions.

years back under cromix and early unix, i modified 'passwd' to restrict
logins to certain programs.

applying this to linux, should/may not be all that different.

instead of using '/bin/bash' as startup shell, consider something like

'consent' could then be a script to display consent agreement and prompt
for a 'y/n' reply. if $1 = 'y' then startx. if $1 = 'n' then exit.

something to think about.





in a free world without fences, who needs gates.
