Ubuntuforums.org, irc (#ubuntu on irc.freenode.net), or the support
section of launchpad might be a better place to ask for help.

This is just FYI (nothing helpful, sorry), especially to the devels
interested in Dansguardian and/or parental controls. A while ago, I
filed a bug on installation procedure of Dansguardian after [not being
able to solve] a support request. See

I sent an email to edubuntu-devel but never got a response:

The developers of the Christian Edition of Ubuntu may know how to
implement a nice way to install and configure Dansguardian, as, afaik,
it comes installed and configurable via GUI in their edition.

Here's a screenshot of what they have:


PS. no, I'm not Christian :-)
