I have a two-year old daughter and an Ubuntu laptop (Hardy on a Dell
How do I lock the keyboard and mouse without locking the screen? I
realise this may require installing new packages.
For example, I want to be able to play a video on the laptop, whilst my
daughter to bashes the keys and clicks the mouse. Ideally the
keyboard/mouse would only be unlocked once a particularly difficult key
combination or sequence is pressed.
I don't intend to leave my daughter alone with the laptop (result would
probably be Ribena spilt over it), but I would like to be able to sit on
the other side of the room and not have to constantly pull her away from it.
