Ubuntu :: Remove A Random App From Startup?

Feb 11, 2010

Karmic - When I start up and log in, a window for KDE Desktop Sharing Invitation automatically pops up.

Closing it doesn't prevent it from popping up on next startup.

There doesn't appear to be any option to "Don't show on startup."

When I go to System -> System Settings -> Advanced -> Autostart, it does not appear under Desktop File. The only thing that appears under "Script File" is gtk-2-engines-qtcurve.rc.sh gtk2engines... which does not appear to be the issue.

I'm guessing there's a shell command that will give me a more in-depth look at what should and should not run upon startup? Would really like to startup with a clean screen!

Ubuntu :: Random Freeze On Startup ?

May 27, 2010

This has been confusing me for a while. It usually takes about 4 or 5 times of hitting the power button for it to start up to the login screen. All it does is go to the Ubuntu splash screen and that's it. The colored dots don't change or anything. It just sits there. I ran the memory test to be sure it wasn't RAM and it ran fine.

System specs:

OS: 10.04
CPU: E8400
GPU: 9600GT
Hard drive: 250 GB Seagate
Mobo: 780i SLI FTW

Slackware :: Startup Hang After "Using /etc/random-seed To Initialize /dev/urandom"?

Feb 19, 2010

I recently tried to upgrade from 2.6.23 to 2.6.32 but kept on getting VFS errors. I had overwritten the old 2.6.23 kernel so there was no going back. Luckily,I had the 2.4.31 kernel still in the /boot directory.

Anyway, I finally got some time to figure out the VFS issues and I managed to solve the VFS kernel panics. It was probably a forgotten configuration setting during the make menuconfig. Now it boots up only to hang right after the "Using /etc/random-seed to initialize /dev/urandom".

Looking at the rc.S script, the next section does the dd if=/dev/urandom of=/etc/random-seed count=1 ...

I know for a fact that it isn't that line that hangs the system. I commented out that line and it still hangs.

Strange thing is that I can boot up 2.4.31 with no problem; but with 2.6.x, I get a hang-up. I did a google and came up with something about rc.udev.new, which I don't have.

Can someone point out to me what is executed right after/etc/rc.d/rc.S? Or maybe point out where it might
be hanging? (To be honest, it's either a hang up or a process that's taking an extraordinary long time to

Ubuntu :: Remove Mysql From Startup?

May 22, 2010

I have installed mysql server on my Ubuntu Lucid AMD64 desktop. I need to run this service only on need. So I prefer not to have this in startup. So I did the following -

1. Deactivated the row entry by name "mysql" from application BootUp-Manager.

2. Run the application sysv-rc-conf and unchecked the checkboxes for all run levels.

3. Run the command "sudo update-rc.d -f mysql remove". Execution completed successfully.

4. Run the command - "sudo service mysql stop". In return I got a message "mysql stop/waiting".

5. Restarted the desktop.

Now when I read through the task manager, I still see a process by name "mysqld" running. I ran the command as mentioned in # 4 above and got the same response. I wanted to know how do I turn off mysql service running from startup permanently. But I still need to run it as and when required.

Ubuntu :: Remove Application From The Startup

Jan 13, 2011

I am running Unbuntu 10.10 on a HTPC, and also XBMC. With some effort it worked ok, sounds, remote etc. Via systems>preferences I managed to add XBMC to the startup. It now starts when I start the PC. However it sort-of hijacks the PC, so the WiFi does not start among other things. Also I am no longer able to log into the desktop, so I am not able to emove XBMC from the start-up of the computer. If I exit XBMC I get to the log-in screen for the desktop, but when I log in it starts XBMC directly.

How can I remove it via the terminal? I cannot find a .config directory, any autostart, any .xsession, .xinitrc or anything else that looks like startup-script. How can I get access to my desktop again?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Add/remove Startup Programs

Jan 21, 2010

I'm unable to change startup programs. If I try and add or remove a program, any changes I have made seem to undo themselves. I suspect it might have something to do with being unable to save the session, but I really don't have a clue.

Just in case it makes a difference: I'm actually running Mint (Helena).

Ubuntu :: Remove Transmission Daemon From Startup

Apr 1, 2011

I've tried the following in rc.local but it gets me nowhere:

for((a=0;a<=5;a++)); do
sleep 1 &
[[ $(top -n1 | grep transmission) == *transmission* ]] &&
[[ $(date +%H) -ge 5 ]] && [[ $(date +%H) -lt 23 ]] && /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop done

[[ $(top -n1 | grep transmission) == *transmission* ]] &&
[[ $(date +%H) -ge 5 ]] && [[ $(date +%H) -lt 23 ]] && /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop

Nothing I do can keep this thing from launching, and apparently kill it either.

Ubuntu :: Remove Annoying Drum Sound At Startup?

Jul 6, 2010

How do I remove that annoying drum sound from the login screen.I went to PREFERENCES -> LOGIN SCREEN, but there are no tabs or boxes for sound. Only options to determine who I want to log in.I tried GCONF-EDITOR, and drilled down to /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/settings-manager-plugins/sound/active and unchecked the active box, rebooted, but it still plays that stupid sound. And the box is unchecked if I check it! I've tried the solutions in the forum and nothing seems to kill that annoying sound.I'm still on 9.10 right now, since 10.04 has a nasty screen flicker problem.

Ubuntu Networking :: Sshd -D At Startup - How To Remove The -D Option

May 19, 2011

Somehow the -D option got tacked on to my sshd when I start up. How do I remove the -D option when sshd is started at boot? I'm guessing I need to edit something in /etc/init.d but not sure what. I checked System->Preferences->Startup Applications and the ssh server daemon isn't listed there. And since it is a command line option /etc/ssh/sshd_config is of no help.

Fedora :: Add / Remove Startup Items?

Nov 28, 2010

Okay, two packages in question here: sshd and xrdp.

In the /etc/rc.d/rc5.d directory there is a K??sshd link, I'm not really sure why the default is to kill sshd in graphical mode, but it's there. I saw it coincidentally when I went to add an S??xrdp link so that I could have xrdp run when the computer starts. I restarted the computer, and of course, couldn't connect via my Windows Remote Desktop client. A quick ps -e | grep xrdp in a terminal window showed me that xrdp had not, in fact, started.

I hop back in to ??/rc5.d to see if I messed up creating my link and poof. there's no more S??xrdp link, furthermore, the K??sshd link that I had removed was back.

Okay, so Fedora doesn't like you messing with the init links manually... I can dig it, cause there's this nifty gui tool to manage startup items... I go in to that and add entries for sshd and xrdp, calling them via their init scripts so I can make sure everything plays nicely... then restart.

Oh, wait, still no xrdp or sshd running.

If I manually start these servers using their init scripts from a terminal they run fine, no issues, but I don't want to do that, and I think we can all agree that I should't have to. What am I doing wrong? What is the 'proper' way to add servers to the startup process and since entering runlevel 5 apparently kills sshd, how do I prevent that?

Ubuntu :: KDM And GDM Battle At Startup - Both Launch X Servers - Remove Duplication?

Apr 28, 2010

I have both ubuntu and kde-desktop installed, and after trying KDM, switched back to GDM which worked fine for a while (although KDE changed my other gnome settings like usplash and cursors which took a while to change back). A day later, though, when I start up my system, the screen flickers a few times then shows me a message that an x-server is already running, so hit no to try loading it on '0' again or yes to try another number.

If I hit no, it will briefly show me the KDE login screen refresh a few times and go back to the menu. If I hit yes, it refreshes about 7 times and finally shows the gnome login screen. This process takes a long time and I'm not sure is great for my screen.

Ubuntu :: Karmic: Change Or Remove Startup Sound And Event Sounds?

Jan 5, 2010

Before karmic while I was using Jaunty, I used to do it all the time, play my favorite sounds wherever I was them, startup, error, login, logout, etc etc... I found it in System>Preferences>Sound...

But when I do the same in Karmic, the opening dialogue box doesn't give me an option to change every sound specifically, instead, although it gives me option to choose a sound theme of my own. But for that I must first compile a theme and then install it / place it in sound themes directory etc etc.

How would I change sounds for particular events without having to compile a whole new theme (customizing the current Ubuntu sound theme)...

how do I create sound themes for Ubuntu and them install them in my Ubuntu?

Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.70GHz
Memory: 1GB
Graphics: 82845G/GL [Brookdale-G]/GE rev 01

For what it's worth, I use this same PC for windows XP and do not have this issue.
