App for locating a stolen laptop

Postby mike1 » 2012-02-23 06:26

Hi,

Is there a debian app which shows the location of a stolen laptop when it's connected to the net?.

TIA.

It's in Debian (possibly upstream only), but you can download the latest version from their website and install it manually.

Thanks.

Will this run as a service, without requiring a login into a user account? (something like the system cron).
