I don't use this. But it listens on a port on all interfaces!

Q: How can I disable the kdeconnectd?

I tried to remove the kdeconnect-kde package, but if I do a "zypper up" after it, it reinstalls it, probably dependency..

I cannot see this as a separated service in systemctl. It is under "session-2.scope"

The binary is: /usr/lib64/libexec/kdeconnectd


You can exclude packages with this command:

sudo zypper addlock {package name}

So in your case it should look like this:

sudo zypper addlock kdeconnect-kde
  • first remove, then addlock, it worked! Thanks! – Peter May 1 '17 at 13:45
