Re: Mint 19 on shutdown at-spi-bus-launcher not responding

Removing execute privileges from at-spi2-registryd did not solve the problem. Did you mean to remove the execute privs from at-spi-bus-launcher?

Re: Mint 19 on shutdown at-spi-bus-launcher not responding

Sounds like it may be a bug

navigate to this location

/usr/lib/at-spi2-core/at-spi2-registryd

you will have to use sudo or open as root and right click it and select properties and uncheck the box that allows it to be executable - reboot and see if that worked
