Firestarter for underpriviliged users

Asked by Breeze on 2009-05-12

I am a beginner in Ubuntu so I hope you would be patient with my questions.

I installed 8.04 after XP. I created underprivileged users all belonging to group I created "guest". I read somewhere that I do not really need Firestarter but I still installed it anyways.

How do I make every user in the group "guest" starts Firestarter after logon? I tried changing thru the terminal /etc/sudoers but it says it can only be changed by the root and editor visudo.

Or should I just uninstall Firestarter? If I uninstall Firestarter, do I still have a built-in firewall intact.

Thank you for all your help.

By default, firewall rules are active (on all accounts created) even when Firestarter application is not. Take note that Firestarter is not the firewall itself but just a GUI-utility to change the settings of the iptable.

Can you help with this problem?
