What is equivalent/alternative of chkconfig in Ubuntu or Debian?

The alternative / equivalent of chkconfig in Ubuntu is “sysv-rc-conf”. To install sysv-rc-conf, ssh to the server and execute:

# apt-get install sysv-rc-conf

to start managing the services, execute

# sysv-rc-conf

It’s an easy to use interface for managing /etc/rc{runlevel}.d/ symlinks.
sysv-rc-conf provides a graphical view for turning services on and off at startup.
