What is starting this disabled service?


I have disabled the bluetooth service using:

Quote:
systemctl disable bluetooth.service
and using systemd-manager, but it still starts at boot-time. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 amd64.

If it is being activated by another service, how can I find and stop it?

I would like to stop it from loading in the first place, rather than stop it afterwards, for example by putting a line in /etc/rc.local.

I also want to activate it when needed, and so I would prefer not make bluetooth.service unexectuable or use similar hacks.

Thanks very much.

To prevent it starting at all you could mask it with
Code:
systemctl mask bluetooth.service
However, to find other services that rely on it (and so start it) examine the dependency chain with
Code:
systemctl list-dependencies bluetooth --reverse
