    Thanks. I tried this for KDE Mint 16, thankfully none were installed.

    Either way I'm thankfull you posted this as my server edition had them.

    "Aside from that, these processes also waste processing power, memory and internet bandwhich. "
    This is the only reason I need to disable zeitgeist. So in /etc/xdg/autostart is found the file:
    zeitgeist-datahub.desktop
    Issuing the following command will disable zeitgeist which is the purpose of this post:

    sudo mv zeitgeist-datahub.desktop zeitgeist-datahub.desktop.bak

    Since there is no program called zeitgeist-datahub.desktop.bak the autostart script will happily bypass this step and it can easily be undone if desired. This approach avoids the collateral problems using apt-get remove causes with dependencies.

    I don't find geoclue on this install.

    For me using whoopsie helps provide better updates. I believe the information being shared can be selected by the user.

    Using Lubuntu 14.04
