I want to remove some applications/services that start when I boot up Kubuntu. Can someone please walk me though the steps to remove postgresql from startup? I have Kubuntu 6.06.

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Linux-General and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Check your startup scripts - in Ubuntu it's System-->Administration-->Services

I'm not sure if Kubuntu has it, but I'd be surprised if it doesn't... but I use /sbin/chkconfig. Since I don't have postgresql installed on my machine I'll use "mysqld" as an example:
  1. Code:
    /sbin/chkconfig --list
    (lists all service. use this to find the exact name of service you're interested in)

  2. Code:
    /sbin/chkconfig --list mysqld
    (shows the runlevels and service status for each runlevel)

  3. Code:
    /sbin/chkconfig --level 1-5 mysqld off
    (turns mysqld off for all runlevels)

  4. Code:
    /sbin/chkconfig  --list mysqld
    (check your work to make sure it's set as you want it to be)

For more information, check out man chkconfig.
