Start and Stop Services in Ubuntu

By | 2010/07/08

How can I start and stop services in Ubuntu with a GUI?

Well depending on how you define graphical, there is an excellent tool called SysV Runlevel Config.

First, install it:

sudo apt-get install sysv-rc-conf

Then start it with sudo:

sudo sysv-rc-conf

Now you can go through a press the space bar to toggle services on or off at different run levels. This is helpful to disable the many things Ubuntu has on by default.
