The Service Manager module allows you to have an overview of all plugins of the KDE Daemon, also referred to as KDE Services. Generally, there are two types of service:

Load-on-Demand Services

This is a list of available KDE services which will be started on demand. They are only listed for convenience, as you cannot manipulate these services.

Startup Services

This shows all KDE services that can be loaded on KDE startup. Services checked in the Use column will be invoked on next startup.

Be careful with deactivation of unknown services: some services are vital for KDE; do not deactivate services if you do not know what you are doing.

To change the Status of a service, select it in the list. Then you can use the Start and Stop to change the status of a service from Not running to Running and vice versa.
