I am using Fedora 17, I need a GUI program to start/stop and enable/disable services and daemons.

I have installed "system-config-services" but it did not have enable/disable feature(run it with sudo).

enter image description here

Is there any GUI program to do this?

I see rcconf in debian based linux, this is sufficient for me in fedora. – Saeed Zarinfam Dec 26 '12 at 5:29

In RHEL/CentOs/Fedora You can use below tools

  • ncurses based tool for enabling/disabling : ntsysv

  • GUI for starting/stoping : system-config-services

you will find check boxes just tick/untick any service which you want to enable/disable at startup. – Rahul Patil Dec 26 '12 at 12:33
if possible upload screen shot of system-config-services – Rahul Patil Dec 26 '12 at 12:34
I uploaded it in question. – Saeed Zarinfam Dec 26 '12 at 12:41
