How to prevent an app from starting at boot?

Post by vbarter »

Hey I want to prevent transmission-daemon from starting at boot. Where do I make this edit? I am planning to have it start automatically upon successful VPN connection, thanks.

Just one note: It will also prevent DietPi from stopping it during installs, updates, backups etc. However, not a bid issue usually.

Say this program is connected to a vpn kill switch, it should be fine in that case right? Kill the VPN and kill switch kills the program
