    Duplicate processes in Ubuntu 12.04

    Hi all,

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS just freshly installed. I found out that I had plenty of duplicate processes. Usually they are repeated 5 times. I attached a print screen (see attachement) in order to illustrate the problem but also the result of ps aux command.

    I would like to avoid to re-install everything so if anybody have a suggestion, I would really appreciate.

    Code:

    My point is that I would like to avoid these duplicate processes in order to be less memory consuming.

    By reinstalling, I am pretty sure to not have the same problem. I think that I did something wrong which implying this malfunctioning.

    Re: Duplicate processes in Ubuntu 12.04

    I'm not familiar with most processes in your list. But it can be quite normal to see duplicates. Just depends on the application / daemon.
    If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.

    Re: Duplicate processes in Ubuntu 12.04

    I don't see anything out of the ordinary with your list of processes. What exactly could you have done wrong? Most of the "duplicates" are kernel jobs, stopping which will likely cause problems.

    ...here's the list of mine:

    After checking a bit more about the different processes, it seems that when I am logging in, several gnome-session are loading too which have as consequence to load 5 times all the processes. However, I still don't have any clue why the session is loaded 5 times instead of one.

    Re: Duplicate processes in Ubuntu 12.04

    I too see nothing wrong with the output of ps aux.
    This is what a normally configured installation does. The same sort of things happen in Windows.

    We could fill this thread with screenshots that will all show basically the same things.

    Unless your computer has genuine memory issues there is not much to be done in this case.

    How much RAM is installed?

    Uhm after watching the result of ps aux, it seems that the process shown are only from the current session which is explaining why you cannot see duplicate processes.

    However it is possible to see it using the system manager.
    I attached two print screen. The first one is after that I logged in. You can see 5 gnome-session processes which imply that all system processes have been loaded 5 times too -> 1.8 GB RAM.

    By killing only 4 of these gnome-session (print screen 2) which are not the one that I am actually using only 800 Mb of RAM.

    So I am trying to know why 5 gnome-session are loaded. I tried to see some information about that inside the log file of LightDM but I am still in a blur.

    Best,

    Can you reboot, and then post the output of

    free -m
    then, expand a terminal window full-screen, and post the outpu of
    Code:
    ps aux | grep gnome-session
