Re: [K12OSN] Automatic user logout script?



Yes, it should! And here I had the gall--the gall!--to suggest to my son that he check his homework before handing it in to his teacher. ;-) Thanks Robert.

How about this:

shouldn't that be

for ID in $(awk -F: '$3 >= 500 {print $1}' /etc/passwd)

do
pkill $ID
done

Put this into a file, make it executable (chmod +x), and then set root's crontab to run it at, say 5pm. Fedora defaults to starting user UID numbers at 500 and going up from
there, so we avoid killing any system processes.
