something like
CODE: SELECT ALL

sudo service "init-service-name" status
sudo service "init-service-name" stop
sudo service "init-service-name" start
sudo service --status-all
also this comes handy to view start/stop service:
CODE: SELECT ALL

sudo sysv-rc-conf
Note runlevels 2,3,4,5 are for "normal" operating in differen modes,
in most cases they are either on or off. Normal GUI runlevel is 5.
Thanks but you left off disable and thats what I need. I tried sudo service samba disable
and all it does is give me this and according to this there is no disable.
-----Usage: /etc/init.d/samba {start|stop|reload|restart|force-reload|status}---------

Apparently the menu where you can control services during install does not work because I unchecked bluetooth and I believe samba right there so that they would not run and they are running anyways. I would like to request a bigger area of things and services that we can disable right there in that same menu during install.Of course it has to work though. AS for nor I need a way to permantly disable services without causing system harm.

I tried sudo service samba disable ...
When the intention is to to re-enable later you can disable as this:

Code: Select all

sudo service samba stop
sudo update-rc.d samba disable
Keeping it installed but clearing all start/stop-links would go as this:

Code: Select all

sudo service samba stop
sudo update-rc.d samba remove
If the intent is to get completely rid of samba you could now uninstall samba
(after having lateste main repo updates installed for MX17.1)

Code: Select all

sudo apt purge samba
EDIT: corrected samba removal for updated MX17.1

how do the font descriptions look on your updated system?

only those mscorefonts still in czech-like descriptions
EDIT:
Update: Just gone through the whole list:
only "Arial" and "Courier New" shows this "czech"-symptom on the style-selections even the othes from mscorefonts are translated.
Let's see what the diff from our sourcce and the one available on sf.

need to check the source of those ... and compare
Note: those fonts normaly are even not needed on linux as we have for most of them good alteranatives available.
Surely understand the user does only know Arial and most have no idea of the identical looking
fonts linux like "Nimbus Sans L" or "Liberation Sans" for Arial
or "Nimbus Mono L" for "Courier New" ... :snail:

Have updated my 3 main laptops and all is well. I'm glad this method is available as I run a highly modified version of MX and I hate doing all the work again...

Hi all,

Just wondered if I need to disable the devrepo now after the upgrade from 17.1 to 18 beta. Sorry if it has been asked and answered already.

cheers
