Ubuntu – How to disable hud-service

cpu loadhud

hud-service keeps eating my cpu. This is troublematic, specially because I'm running 12.04 in a Asus EEEPC. There are a lot of answers on how to change hud bindings, but what I reallyw wonder if there is a way to disable or uninstall hud-service.

Thanks in advance,

Best Answer

Open a terminal and do

on 32bit system

sudo chmod -x /usr/lib/indicator-appmenu/hud-service

on 64bit system

sudo chmod -x /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/hud/hud-service

which removes - the execute mode x (i.e., permission) from hud-service.


You may want to gently end (or violently kill) the currently running hud-service (or reboot, etc) for "changes to take effect" immediately...
