Ubuntu – How to restrict users of computers to 2 hours only


I work in a library and I want to restrict users of computers to 2 hours only. Then lock them out and allow another user to use the computer. I am using Ubuntu and would like to know if there is a free software I could use to do this.

This Bash script will lock screen after an interval you specify and require the password to reactivate it.

It gives a count down notification bubble and soft sound at 2 hours, 1 hour, 45, 30, 15, 10, 5, 3, 2 and 1 minute remaining.

As I wrote the script I'd be happy to modify it for anyone. Because it's written in Bash millions of other people with beginner scripting skills can change it as well.
