Subject description: a GUI tool to manage systemd
 

https://github.com/linuxenko/chkservice

systemd is an init system used in Linux distributions to bootstrap the user space. Subsequently to booting, it is used to manage system processes. It is a replacement for the UNIX System V and Berkeley Software Distribution init systems.
From Wikipedia.

Sometimes, users ask a developer for systemd, but systemd is not a favorite of Dog and Puppy developers.

For Ubuntu (and derivatives) a PPA is available. Install software-properties-common beforehand, then : $sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxenko/chkservice. Update and install chkservice.

For Debian (and derivatives), you must have git and cmake installed, because you will have to build and install chkservice.

When building chkservice with cmake, you may have this message in terminal : Checking for module 'libsystemd'
-- No package 'libsystemd' found
So, unless you install systemd, you can stop here.
Another thing : CMakeLists.txt must be in your source folder, or building process will be stalled.

Build and install debian package.

git clone https://github.com/linuxenko/chkservice.git
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ../
cpack

dpkg -i chkservice-x.x.x.deb

To see a list of the system units available : #chkservice
To launch help : ?
you can manage systemd units by enabling, reloading, starting, etc, them.

For example, you have NetworkManager installed for your networking needs, and you do some configurations, then you need to restart NetworkManager. If you don't know the command line, you will reboot. With Chkservice, you don't need to know the command line, you do a restart in the GUI.

This tool should become popular with developers and advanced users alike.
