How to disable Modem Manager

Postby Simone » 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!

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.
