  • does sudo apt-get remove zeitgeist work? – Mateo Dec 12 '14 at 0:58
  • Can you clarify exactly what you want to do? Removing zeitgeist will remove Unity.. What do you mean "keep my information private"? – Seth Dec 12 '14 at 1:02
  • I have no interest in keeping zeitgeist. If it removes Unity what is a possible workaround? It means exactly as it sounds, keep my business my business. – Woody Dec 12 '14 at 1:42
  • When I copy and paste the command sudo sudo mv /etc/xdg/autostart/zeitgeist-datahub.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/zeitgeist-datahub.desktop-inactive it says no such file or directory. This is frustrating – Woody Dec 12 '14 at 3:40
  • I want to disable zeitgeist and anything else that might be a compromise to my privacy. – Woody Dec 12 '14 at 5:01
