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. Dec 26, 2012 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. Dec 26, 2012 at 12:33
  • if possible upload screen shot of system-config-services Dec 26, 2012 at 12:34
  • I uploaded it in question. Dec 26, 2012 at 12:41
  • you may have to run it as root!?
