[XFCE4] 100% CPU load for Xorg process
« on: November 19, 2017, 11:48:21 am »
Hello!

After starting XFCE4 session I get a single process allocating 100% CPU:
/usr/lib/xorg/Xorg :0 -seat seat0 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/:0 -nolisten tcp vt7 -novtswitch

This issue does not occur when starting another desktop session, e.g. DDE.

What's causing this issue?
How can I troubleshoot it?

THX

I had the same 100% for Xorg on one of my laptops (but not the others).

Turns out it was the PulseAudio "volume control" in the system tray.  If you remove it... the cpu spike is gone.

Interesting... however this workaround is not working with my laptop (T410).
