Internet content filtering

Registered by Mantas Kriaučiūnas on 2006-07-17

Baltix GNU/Linux needs simple internet content filtering solution. Look at dansguardian-gui package, created by http://ubuntuce.com/convert.htm (Ubuntu Christian Edition). NOTE: Dansguardian packages for Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) from UbuntuCE repo have incorrect version - I've fixed this problem, please use updated Dansguardian packages with Lithuanian translations from http://ftp.akl.lt/Linux/Baltix/Baltix-Ubuntu-packages/karmic/Dansguardian-internet-filter/
Another solution would be to use willowng-config + http://packages.ubuntu.com/willowng packages but corrently willowng is broken and unmaintained for ~1 year, WillowNG is an internet content filtering proxy (e.g. for child-safe internet browsing). Willowng-config is a configuration GUI for ease-of-use.
See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LocalContentFilter for more info.

Whiteboard

It seems dansguardian-gui package, created by http://ubuntuce.com/convert.htm (Ubuntu Christian Edition) is the best solution for now. UbuntuCE repo contains incorrect Dansguardian packages for Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic" (these packages have incorrect version because of bug #474475 and will never upgrade to Ubuntu 10.x versions or security updates) - I've fixed this problem, please use updated Dansguardian packages with Lithuanian translations from here:
