What are daemons and can i turn some off?

Postby SmilerBoy on Fri Jan 29, 2010 5:00 pm

Hi There,

I'm running Gloria on an Acer Aspire One Netbook (1gb ram 3 cell battery)
and I read somewhere that Gnome Daemons can affect battery Life, which is a hot topic for me as the battery life i have is poor at best.

So What are Daemons? what's running LM 7? (Gloria main Ed) and Are there any I can shut off in a netbook which is mainly used for surfing the web and reading emails

I've tried to find a guide but most were written for various Distros that are not Mint or Ubuntu also they were written for people who feel comfortable in terminal. A GUI daemon removal addition tool would be perfect if there is one? so if you can help point me in the right direction that would be great

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
