Re: How to logout a user after a certain amount of inactivity time

I created once a script that uses the "w" command to identify the IDLE time for a session, and kill based on a configurable time. You need a script like that and run it by cron. You must kill the dtsession process started by the IDLE user.
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

I ask if there is a parameter in CDE like TMOUT to set it

Hello,
you can lock the cde session after some interval using the dtstyle; in dtstyle select "Screen" and set the time interval to lock the session.

I will update you if I find anything for logout the cde session.

I don't think the TMOUT will work for CDE session.
