Description

E.g. we're currently running /usr/lib/evolution/evolution-source-registry, /usr/lib/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-calendar-server, and /usr/lib/telepathy/mission-control-5. Probably not all of those are useful in Tails. Getting rid of some of them would help avoid Tails/Jessie require too much RAM.

Added by intrigeri over 3 years ago

Disable a few unneeded D-Bus services.

Some of these services are automatically started (via D-Bus activation) when
GNOME Shell tries to use them. The only "use" I've seen for them, except sucking
precious RAM, is to display "No appointment today" in the calendar pop-up.
