    I'm with guiverc here: if there's something you don't like, just don't use it. Leave it as is, removing things causes more trouble than it's worth.

    The resource manager is called Htop.

    Much appreciated.

    Rather than removing bluetooth, is disabling it a better option?

    Yeah. You might even be able to do this in the BIOS.

    My BIOS doesn't give the option.

    Bluetooth doesn't appear anywhere in BIOS.

    I'm wanting to disable it completely from doing anything and from starting up at boot.

    What are alternate ways to accomplish this in Lubuntu?

    I'm thinking Muon or maybe Stacer, I'm not exactly sure though.

    In Ubuntu, Stacer wasn't saving the settings.

    On LiveUSB is understandable, but on a full install...not saving settings made it seem useless to me.

    It could be because my install is on a usb.

    Is this an installed system to USB? or a live system on USB?

    Don't forget, if it's live with persistence, it's still a live and and not an installed system.

    wyatt@wyatt-aspiree1532:~$ sudo parted -l
    [sudo] password for wyatt:
    Model: SanDisk Cruzer Glide (scsi)
    Disk /dev/sdb: 128GB
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
    Partition Table: gpt
    Disk Flags:

    Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
    3 17.4kB 1050MB 1050MB fat32 msftdata
    1 1050MB 124GB 123GB ext4
    2 124GB 128GB 4195MB linux-swap(v1) swap
    wyatt@wyatt-aspiree1532:~$
    Nope, it's not a live with peristence, it is an actual full install to a usb like to an internal HDD.

    It's an installed system to a usb.

    I probably need to repartition and reinstall because my FAT32 partition is /dev/sdb3 and the ext4 is the /dev/sdb1

    I believe the sdb1 needs to be the fat32.

    I also created a 4gb linuxswap partition on the usb.

    My "Alt+PrtSc" isn't working. I don't know what's wrong with it.

    I wish I could take screenshots to let people see what I am seeing.

    Most times I run into people thinking, "That's not possible, he must be on a live with persistence and just don't know it"
    But they never give me the info on how to provide the evidence and so they continue assuming it is a "with persistence" install.

    Print Screen is achieved with PrtScr; no ALT is needed

    https://manual.lubuntu.me/lts/2/2.3/...creengrab.html

    I have no real experience with bluetooth; but I'll provide the following link

    https://askubuntu.com/questions/6775...system-startup

    (I'm not using focal or 20.04 currently, having only impish boxes in front of me; my own and test installs I'm running, so I can't currently confirm the `/etc/bluetooth/main.conf` will be found on your system; but it's where I'd look first. Later I maybe able to check on a focal system but can't currently sorry)

    On Lubuntu PrtScr calls up a screenshot program.
    If you want the Win-like PrtScr and Alt-PrtScr functionality where screen or window gets copied to the clipboard, you'll need to set it up yourself. I've done this on my machines, if you want the recipe, say so.

    Ok...here goes

    May I please have the recipe for the Wihdows-like printscreen function?

    Re: Trying Lubuntu 20.04 LTS...

    I dislike bluetooth. Got hacked through it on a freshly installed, freshly patched, ubuntu box. I usually disable it, but in my rush to travel to a conference, I though the fresh install and patch should handle all my security needs. Clearly I was wrong.
    Since then, I blacklist the bluetooth kernel driver and check that it doesn't get loaded at boot every reboot.
    Bluetooth was added as a dependency for qemu about a year ago - why I don't know. Regardless, it kept showing up, so preventing it from loading in the kernel was my final answer after purging all blue* packages didn't work.
    There are blacklist files in /etc/modprobe.d/ Follow those examples.

    Haven't touched Lubuntu in a long time. All DEs seem too bloated for my needs, plus I don't really use menus.
