My daughter uses Ubuntu and I want to WATCH her activity not lock it down. I'd rather give her the freedom to make choices over filtering her content. Google search has turned up Zeitgeist as a logger for Ubuntu (using 14.04) but the Activity Journal doesn't appear to show any activity. Additionally all screenshots I see show a checkmark in the bottom right corner (checked for logging, x for not logging) and I don't see that. Please help this n00b figure out what to do
- Go to the top right corner and click on the gears icon:
- Press System Settings
- Click Security and Privacy
- Ensure the button is ON
- Turn all check-marks on
That's it! Zeitgeist is now recording all checked activities.
For more information and how to analyse the data, head to http://zeitgeist-project.com/experience/ and especially look at "Activity Journal" which is a UI to the back-end sqlite database (you can also just run queries on the database itself, or have it copied over somewhere else for later analysis)
