I'd like to add a user to my system that can only run Steam. I'm currently running KDE 4.11.2, but adding the Resource restrictions for add_activities and immutable desktop to the user's kdeglobals cause the user's KDE session to immediately crash on login. Further, the documentation on these features seem to all assume some other piece of knowledge I simply don't have about the way that KDE works. Can someone point me to guide that shows, in detail, how to set up a user account like this?

Metraxis,

It sounds like you want a kiosk. I'm not a KDE user, so I don't know if KDE can do that.

You can be interested in reading KDE System Administration/Kiosk/Introduction

The Kiosk Admin tool is not part of the official KDE distribution as it is under active development and keeping it free from KDE's release schedules allow its developers to incorporate feedback faster.

And while portage used to host ebuilds for kiosktool as part of app-admin, I am afraid the package is no longer supported under gentoo.
