How to disable Modem Manager

Postby Simone on Mon Apr 30, 2012 3:22 pm

Hi, with recent updates the Network Manager app use Modem Manager plugin, that permit to use external USB modem. If you don't use, want probably disable to avoid resources waste. You can do this disabling the Modem Manager D-BUS interface:
Code: Select all
sudo mv /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/org.freedesktop.ModemManager.service /usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/org.freedesktop.ModemManager.service.disabled

Hope can be useful!

Code: Select all
"sudo stop modemmanager"
didn't do anything ; neither
Code: Select all
"echo manual | sudo tee -a /etc/init/modemmanager.override"

but your command worked perfectly!

I was curious so tried out the following two:
Code: Select all
sudo stop modemmanager
echo manual | sudo tee -a /etc/init/modemmanager.override

Worked perfectly for me.
