Howto: Speed up shutdown/reboot

September 4, 2006 at 5:14 pm | Posted in scripts, tips and tricks, xubuntu | 5 Comments

This script will speed up your shutdown and reboot process anymore, by removing the programs listed on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Teardown.

You can download it here: Service_tune.tar.gz. Then run in the terminal (Xfce menu > System > Terminal):

tar -xvf Service_tune.tar.gz
sudo ./remove_shutdown_services.sh

Enjoy.

  1. The script speeds up shutdown somewhat. The script couldn’t remove 12 files since they did not exist. Should I run restore_shutdown_services.sh before I upgrde Xubuntu?
