Linux mint disable service autostart 2018-02-12 08:47

For linux mint there are many service scripts in the directory /etc/init.d. Most of them will be executed when user login. Linux uses different directory (such as /etc/rc?.d/) to mark which service and when to run. If you don't want one service auto start you need to remove the link from the directory or to use update-rc.d command like following.

sudo update-rc.d tomcat disable

Use man update-rc.d to get more details about linux service.
