Restarting system services in KDE

Submitted by Druss on Mon, 2007-09-03 19:47

Here's a simple how-to on restarting services in KDE. I will be alluding to this article in other guides on this site, rather than repeating myself every time - Lazy organisation, I call it :)

  1. Click on KMenu and select System settings.
  2. Select the Advanced tab and click on System services.
  3. Click on the administrator mode button and enter your superuser password.
  4. In the huge list of services on the left, navigate to the service you would like to restart.
  5. Right click on the service and select restart (or start / stop) to restart the service, and you are done!


You can do this in double quick time via the command line by typing the following:
sudo /etc/init.d/[service name] restart
where [service name] indicates the service you are looking to restart. Similarly, you can also stop and start services by using the stop and start keywords respectively instead of restart.

Hope this helps!
