Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Um ... so a desktop user can share services to others on his home network?

Can't answer the one about cinnamon-dvd .

You can stop it from starting at boot as a compromise:
Code: Select all
sudo mv /etc/init/smbd.conf /etc/init/smbd.conf.stop

You might want to stop it's little brother as well:
Code: Select all
sudo mv /etc/init/nmbd.conf /etc/init/nmbd.conf.stop
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
