    What is best way to stop Evolution processes?

    I see three items running for Evolution but I don't even use it. I tried to remove evolution but it told me it couldn't because something else depended on it.

    What is the best way to keep Evolution processes from running? Thanks.

    Do these processes start upon boot?

    Have you tried using sudo kill?

    try:
    Code:
    ps -A | grep evolution
    this will list all processes with evolution in the name. It will have a 4 or 5 digit number associated with each one. To kill the processes type:
    Code:
    sudo kill -9 ####
    You can replace #### with one pid (process id) or list the pid of every process you want to kill.

    I think this answers your question...

    They do start at boot. How can I make it so that they don't start at boot?

    Thanks for the help man.

    In System => Preferences => Sessions

    There is a program called Evolution-alarm or something.. you could disable that.

    Is that the process you are talking about?

    evolution-alarm-notify
    evolution-data-server-1.0.2
    evolution-exchange-storage

    I mean, what do I need these things running for? Don't use evolution.

    Remove Evolution.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove evolution
