(solved) Stop wicd & wicd-monitor on startup?
« on: January 04, 2010, 04:09:10 pm »

Another one of my dumb questions, here.  I'm trying to get "wicd" and "wicd-monitor" not to start when I startup Vector.  I don't need them,...but my Conky shows they are using memory (and I would like to cut the necessary memory to as low as I can).  Vector is running just great, all right,..I just want to get rid of uneeded stuff to "lighten" up what memory I have.   Guess I didn't notice that when I did my original install,.....would like to know what (if anything) I can do now that I have my Vector all set up.

Start VasmCC, go to Service, select Services, select 4 (graphical user interface desktop), scroll to the bottom of the list and untick the wicd daemon.

Select Settings from the menu, choose Autostarted Applications. Untick the Wicd Network Manager Tray item.

That should disable it.
