KDaemonManager
System Software
Description:

KDaemonManager is (if you hadn\'t guessed) a KDE systems settings module for managing daemons.

The primary focus is usability above anything else. This application has only been designed with Kubuntu in mind, though there\'s no reason it won\'t work with others.

This is only a draft so please make a backup of rc.* and init.d before running,

Please test, and give feedback.

Depends: chkconfig

I can not believe that KDE4 currently do not have a module in Systemsettings to handling daemons.
I hope that in future your module has support for more daemons, and show a complete list of them, as does: chkconfig --list
You should contact to the KDE team for this module be officially included.
Thanks, Bye.

I made a deliberate decision to not show all daemons. There isn't anyone in the world who would want to disable something like dbus - and letting a user do so would be a bad thing (imho).

I opted for storing a list of services a user would want to enable/disable. Perhaps I would be better off storing a list of services that they wouldn't, and then parsing the list as you suggested.

Something I can think about for V0.2

Yes, you are right. It's a bad idea to allow the users to enable/disable all daemons. Perhaps you could make it show all the daemons loaded but not all with the options to enable or disable, only for information purpose.

I disagree. This tool is for admin users, and thy must can change any service.

I think that the better choice is to show a warning message when the admin enters into this KCM.

... and/or show dangerous services with red color.

Where can I get the source for this? The Download link leads me to https://launchpad.net/kdaemonmanager but I don't see any downloadable files there either.

I like the thought of this and KDE4 really needs this. I suggest that you try to get it into KDE proper!
