I'd suggest something like
so that you can actually get managed windows. You'll want to use the gnome
keyboard configurator though, to make sure there aren't surprise keystrokes
that launch apps or anything. (Metacity might not be the best choice, but
it's easily available.)
This works fine but he is still able to ctrl+alt+F(1-6) and log in
browse the file system.
To prevent that, I tried to set /bin/false as the default shell for
that user in /etc/passwd but this also prevented him to log in
Instead, add this section (anywhere) in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Option "DontVTSwitch" "On"
Is there a way to be sure that "visitor" will only be able
the web and not the file system ? any security issues ?
It's difficult but possible. You'll probably also want to edit the firefox
chrome to strip down what it can access.
