Disable cinnamon smartcard daemon (csd-smartcard)


Hi
I am using cinnamon desktop on arch linux. The cinnamon desktop loads several daemons at startup. Among these daemons one is "csd-smartcard". This daemon is giving following error at cinnamon startup:
Code:
[cinnamon-settings-daemon-smartcard] Failed to start: no suitable smartcard driver could be found
which results in delayed startup of cinnamon desktop. As I am not using any smart cart so my question is that is there a way to disable or uninstall this cinnamon daemon?
Regards

Yes, type the following in a terminal as root;

Code:
systemctl disable cinnamon-settings-daemon-smartcard
See the following for more information: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/systemd

systemctl disables startup services. csd-smartcard is not a system service, rather it is a desktop daemon, so I cannot be manipulated by systemctl. However, still I checked the command, provided by you and it gave following error:
Code:
Failed to disable unit: Unit file cinnamon-settings-daemon-smartcard.service does not exist.

Arh, sorry about that. While this is written for Ubuntu, it should still apply to the Cinnamon settings daemon: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...-daemon.1.html

Usually a "daemon" refers to what is also known as a "system service", but not in this case.

The solution is to append following lines to /etc/xdg/autostart/cinnamon-settings-daemon-smartcard.desktop:
Code:
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false
X-GNOME-Autostart-Phase=false
X-GNOME-Autostart-Notify=false
X-GNOME-AutoRestart=false
