Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I see:

  • Bluetooth manager
  • Certificate and key storage
  • check for new hardware drivers
  • disk notifications
  • GNOME login sound
  • GSettings Data Conversion
  • Network Manager
  • NVDIA X Server Settings
  • Power Manager
  • Print Queue Applet
  • PulseAudio Sound System
  • PulseAudio Sound System KDE Routing Policy
  • Remote Desktop
  • Secret Storage Service
  • SSH Key Agent
  • Ubuntu One
  • Update Notifier
  • User folders update
  • Visual Assistance

I'd like to turn off these:

  • Bluetooth manager
  • disk notifications
  • GNOME login sound
  • GSettings Data Conversion
  • Power Manager
  • Remote Desktop
  • Ubuntu One
  • User folders update
  • Visual Assistance

That depends on what you use and what you might maybe use in the future... –  JanC Nov 4 '10 at 20:43
    
I guess with some of these its more obvious what I loose if I turn them off. I imagine if I turn off "Bluetooth manager" I will lose Bluetooth, I am ok with that. What do I lose if I turn off "GSettings Data Conversion"? –  Alex Black Nov 4 '10 at 20:45

  • Bluetooth manager: bluetooth won't work until you re-enable it and re-login
  • disk notifications: don't disable it, it will warn you if your disk is going to die soon!
  • login sound: safe to disable
  • GSettings data conversion: I would leave this turned on, as it might cause problems in the future otherwise
  • power manager: you better keep this running
  • remote desktop: might be okay if you don't use it
  • Ubuntu One: again, if you don't use it...
  • User folder update: might be useful to keep it in case of changes in the future
  • visual assistance: if you are 100% sure nobody will ever need accessibility tools on this system...

I'd leave GSettings Data Conversion, Disk Notifications and Power Manager alone.

Please imagine a sidenote about "how this most likely won't effect the overall performance" here. Thank you.
