Removing the Enlightenment Sound Daemon (aka "esd" aka "esound")


I want to know what is launching the "esd" process, so I can stop it from running automatically on startup.

The parent pid is "1". No scripts in /etc/init.d execute esd directly.

I would like to avoid going to the extreme of "aptitude remove esound", just in case it supports something I need.

Well, you should've read the absolutely wellwritten doc of aptitude. And there you would have discovered, that aptitude takes painstakingly care of ALL the dependencies the guys of whatever Debian-programm have stipulated for installation or removal of their brainchild.

So where's your problem now?
Just following the aptitude-warnings when you want to delete f.i. "esd" and then deciding with your brain(!) if you want to say YES or NO, is that too much?? Aptitude won't let you destroy your OS and environment without severely warning and YOU deliberately overriding these and going your own stubborn way.

Just follow aptitude and you will stay with a good running system!

Did you read the esd man page? Did you check the settings in /etc/esd.conf or /etc/esound/esd.conf? Is esd running even before you login with X?

The config file was useless, but thanks for the hint about the X integration. I found a checkbox in the GUI prefs to disable the ESD mixer.
