I know about the update-rc.d SERVICE OPTIONS command to add and remove services from startup, but how do I use it to get a list of all the services that are currently configured to start at startup?

Is there some other way to get this list?

See the attached link.

The command is

service --status-all

Thanks, the service --status-all did it, though I still have to find a legend to determine exactly what those symbols mean. –  Lance Roberts Aug 20 '11 at 1:02
    
@Lance: there is a bug in managing option --status-all, see this AU question: askubuntu.com/questions/55992/running-services –  enzotib Aug 20 '11 at 10:47
    
I realize this is a little dated, but from my reading of the man page, it sounds as if this lists the current status, not whether they're configured to start? "service --status-all runs all init scripts, in alphabetical order, with the status command. This option only calls status for sysvinit jobs, upstart jobs can be queried in a similar manner with initctl list'." –  ernie Nov 5 '13 at 22:33

You could use BUM.

This looks nice, but I'm too new with Ubuntu to know how to install this on my virtual server, that I PuTTY into (or if it's even possible). –  Lance Roberts Aug 20 '11 at 1:04
    
Do you have a graphical environment? –  desgua Aug 20 '11 at 1:07
    
No, just a terminal session. –  Lance Roberts Aug 20 '11 at 1:12
    
Well, BUM is a graphical tool, so the command you've mentioned above seems to fit better yours needs. –  desgua Aug 20 '11 at 1:18
