See other thread. “Solution” was to uninstall yad, which also mean uninsalling all eos-specific apps except log tool (so welcome, reflector-simple, update-notifier).
Please do not recommend this as a solution. It is not.
True. Thank you.
Lots of weird things in this install, didn’t do much different from the other three online installs of Xfce I have done the last two weeks and yet I have several issues including a core dump (see other post) every login, and this.
The differences are removal of separate /home, now running / and /home on an SSD formatted with btrfs. That’s it.
