For the old (and still used in debian) init mechanism there are tools such as
rcconf to disable services and daemons.
Are there such for whatever is used in Ubuntu (upstart I guess) ?
I am running 12.04.3. (I know you can disable some by messing with the files in
/etc/init directory, but I would prefer a tool like rcconf.)
It does not have to be graphical.
I know how to install and use
rcconf, but Ubuntu uses a newer init mechanism, and I do not think
rcconf works with that.
Services-admin apparently provided by
gnome-system-tools seems good, although might have dependencies I want to avoid on my minimal install.
