I need create a special user group which is only allowed to login in to gnome and execute only one application.

How can I do that?

Why not let the application replace your desktop environment in this special case? – Takkat Jan 29 '11 at 8:57
@Takkat, if you know how to do this, you can ask a question about it and answer it yourself (providing as much detail as you can), then link it up in the comments here. That'd be cool. – Stefano Palazzo Jan 29 '11 at 10:51
@Takkat : yeah, can be that way too – Luciano Facchinelli Jan 29 '11 at 11:06

This looks promising, though a bit involved...
