xfce4-panel activating Xconf via dbus every 10 minutes?

Hi,

Since xfce 4.18 my systems log (on arch linux) is filled with these messages (every 10 minutes):

dbus-daemon[]: [session uid= pid=] Activating service name='org.xfce.Xfconf' requested by ':1.1215' (uid= pid= comm="xfce4-panel --display :0.0 --sm-client-id 23f7bc55")
jan 14 11:45:19 dbus-daemon[]: [session uid= pid=] Successfully activated service 'org.xfce.Xfconf'

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thanks in advance!

This is because since 4.18, xfconfd terminates itself after 5 minutes of inactivity, whereas before it stayed running all the time. So as the panel saves its settings every 10 minutes (it was already the case before 4.18), it restarts xfconfd at that time.

Okay thanks.

This however raises another question. wink

Why is it smart to terminate xconfd after 5 minutes of inactivity if the panel needs it every 10 minutes?

Because of the modular nature of Xfce. Xfconf can be used for other components, without the panel necessarily being present. In fact, this was originally implemented for the use of Xfconf in a flatpak (for Ristretto). Otherwise, xfconfd kept running indefinitely after the application was closed.
