BUM - Boot Up Manager for Linux

To manage start up services etc in linux distributions, there are plenty of tools available to make the process easier. One of those tools is Boot Up Manager (BUM). BUM is a graphical tool that allows you to select which services you want to run at startup. Not only that, but there might well be processes running on your machine that you do not need. Solution to these needs is BUM.

Installation :

1. Open up a terminal window.
2. Issue the command sudo apt-get install bum.
3. Type your sudo password and hit Enter.
4. Accept any dependencies (if necessary).

Once the installation is complete, leave that terminal window open so you can start up the tool.

How to start?

In terminal just type "sudo bum" without quotes to start BUM.
