I have just installed Dansguardian using privoxy for my house and I was wondering it was possible to disable the ability to turn off the proxy. I am using Ubuntu 13.04 and I would like to hide "Network proxy" from the "Network" settings in the system settings. Preferably I would also like to take away the ability to shot down the proxy with terminal as I do not want people getting smart and finding this way around it. But talking to friends say that it is probably not possible. I thought maybe using the "Main Menu" app would work but it does not.

It seems like there is always a line in some source file that you can comment out or some shell script that I could run to do this. Eventually I would like to use a script of some sort to do this in case I need to re-install Ubuntu again.

If you are looking for a good tutorial to install Dansguardian here is a link. Every thing else confused me. http://blog.bodhizazen.net/linux/web-content-filtering-made-easy/
