Tool to Manage Ubuntu Services

In an earlier post, I mentioned about the Runlevels in Ubuntu and how its different from the rest of the Linux family. Each Runlevel can be configured to start with certain services. A tool to manage the Services in Ubuntu is sysv-rc-config

This tool can be installed using the command:

sudo apt-get install sysv-rc-conf

Once installed, it can be used as:

sudo sysv-rc-conf

This tool will display all the services and the runlevels. You can easily choose which services to load and which not to. The screenshot shows how it will appear. To exit the tool, press q key.
