KDE Daemon Manager

Items of software that I have written.

KDE Daemon Manager


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

One of my goals is to spot every time I find myself reaching for a command line and writing an GUI to acheive the same task.

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.

Ubuntu Install

If you are a (K)Ubuntu user add my PPA:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/david.edmundson/ppa/ubuntu karmic main

Then simply:

sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install kdaemonmanager


Get the latest source code by typing:

bzr branch lp:kdaemonmanager

You will need chkconfig installed on your computer in order to do anything useful

Remember the application is in early development. I highly recomend taking a backup of /etc/init.d and /etc/rc* before continuing
