So I was trying to stop pulseaudio with
pulseaudio -k, but it kept restarting "on its own", even though I have the configuration
autospawn = no in place.
I'm pretty sure it's systemd that keeps restarting it, as instructed by /usr/lib/systemd/user/pulseaudio.service:
[Unit] Description=Sound Service [Service] # Note that notify will only work if --daemonize=no Type=notify ExecStart=/usr/bin/pulseaudio --daemonize=no Restart=on-failure [Install] Also=pulseaudio.socket WantedBy=default.target
But the thing is, when I try to stop this service with
systemctl stop pulseaudio.service, systemctl returns me the following:
Failed to stop pulseaudio.service: Unit pulseaudio.service not loaded.
How do I stop/disable this service?
