Turning off unwanted services

Postby lKingjr » Thu Sep 16, 2010 10:37 am

How do I turn off unwanted services in Fluxbox? I don't use Bluetooth devices or print etc seeing I use it in VirtualBox and have no need for them.

there are three groups of people in the world. those that can count, and those that can't.

If rcconf is available for that version of Mint, you can install that and get a nice screen that lets you turn off services on startup

Code: Select all

apt search rcconf
i   rcconf                          - Debian Runlevel configuration tool

You could always uninstall the applications you are not using. Unfortunately Mint, like Ubuntu embeds smb/cifs into their file system as the default method of sharing folders, in my mind an unnecessary complication within a Linux desktop, unless I actually want to connect to and share windows files rather than just drop them into the cloud or otherwise connect to them via a usb device

I don't agree with the conclusion of that minimal comparison, in fact I think dropbox is the better choice for many
