Libreoffice & another app have become too slow to use, timeshift doesn't help

So, somewhere in the last week or so, Libreoffice became glacially slow to load and to load spreadsheets within it. I uninstalled and reinstalled it, and set the spreadsheet to its defaults, and uninstalled some plugins for it as well, with no improvement. I even timeshifted back two weeks before the problem showed up, with no improvement. I have System-Monitoring-Center installed, it also loads VERY slowly. I am considering a total system re-install, as I do use spreadsheets fairly heavily. Does anyone have any ideas?

What DE/WM? Do you have xdg-desktop-portal-gnome installed? Remove and reboot.


Wow. That fixed it. I have no idea what that file does or how it got in my system, but removing it fixed the problem.
