I may have posted this sometime in the past but I don’t remember he he oops.
When I log in to Mate, for some reason it tries to open multiple, apparently infinite instances of Caja. The panel quickly fills with buttons but the browser window never appears. Very little else works either. The desktop is almost completely unresponsive.
I am using 13.1, installed this repo in Yast and chose the Mate pattern that appeared that did a full install with all the extras.
If you need immediate relief, this was mentioned, “In the meantime this problem can easily worked around by editing the /usr/share/applications/caja.desktop file, changing the X-MATE-AutoRestart value from true to false.”
