Ideas collected from users

  • Create a simple ["Desktop environment"] for [http://lists.debian.org/debian-jr/2006/11/msg00014.html very young children].

    • probably the simplest way to do this is to have your X system launch straight into a [http://gcompris.net gcompris session].

      • use .xinitrc with a single command: gcompris in it, or
      • configure your ["Desktop environment"] with a ?DebianJrSpecialSession for that small user

      • gcompris has a number of command line options and configurations to make it use the full screen quite well for this scenario (! provide examples!).
