Changing the startup scripts of an Ubuntu installation

Submitted by Jochus on Sun, 10/02/2013 - 19:23 | Posted in: Linux


When you boot your Ubuntu installation, a lot of scripts are started. A lot of scripts are superfluous. But how to disable the ones you don't need?


  • Install rcconf
  • $ sudo aptitude install rcconf

  • Disable the service by toggling the service using the "space bar".
  • $ sudo rcconf
