I wish to use the pigpio C library which requires that the daemon is not running. My application will be in an embedded standalone system and I cannot therefore kill the daemon.


It depends on how it was started in the first place:

  1. If it was started as a service on Raspbian use the following command:

    sudo systemctl disable pigpiod
  2. Assuming you followed this description to add pigpiod to the crontab:

    @reboot              /usr/local/bin/pigpiod

    simply use sudo crontab -e again to remove this line and have it not started on reboot.
