Nothing to handle services (daemons) in Karmic !

Asked by Oedipe on 2009-11-01

I'm an end-user of Ubuntu. I've upgraded from Jaunty to Karmic release and there's absolutely nothing in Karmic for the control of the various services (daemons) by the user !!! Nothing !!! Not a single interface. That's really really bad ! Ubuntu wants to be "user friendly" but the last releases are more and more bugged and deceptives.

Not an happy user here... :-(

I know that's more like a workaround than a solution, but you can use the command-line to control the services. Examples:

#You can start a service like this
sudo service samba start

#You can stop a service like this
sudo service cups stop

#You can print the status of the services
sudo service --status-all

That's OK Zoltán, i knew the workaround.

Anyway, thank you for your kind response. But it's not really "user friendly" and users should be told of that kind of miss in a release _before_ upgrading. Nothing has been advertised by Ubuntu... (sorry for my poor English)
Best regards,

I totally agree with you, the lack of a graphical service manager is my main problem with 9.10. As far as I know, the Gnome guys are to be blamed for that.
