[SOLVED] Mint 19 on shutdown at-spi-bus-launcher not responding

Hello,

After switching to Mint 19, when I try to shut down I always get a "program is still running" dialog box telling me that at-spi-bus-launcher is not responding. I click "shut down anyway" and all is well, but it is annoying. This happens on a clean install of Mint 19 Mate and also on a VM running Mint 19 Cinnamon that was upgraded from 18.3.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Greg

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

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? That would indeed remove the error - it wouldn't have a problem with not being able to stop if it was not allowed to start in the first place... but surely this program is running for some purpose.

that is whole point to see if error goes away - it is part of GTK3 which Cinnamon uses - it is possible that Cinnamon is corrupted you might have to reinstall it

How does one go about doing that?

Never mind - this problem is solved. It appears that a just-released update has fixed it on both machines.

Thanks!

OK, so I know you said this is solved, but I still have this problem in my laptop. Just installed mint a couple of weeks ago, so I assume it's up to date.
Any fix for this?
