I’m using Manjaro XFCE for several years now, and I never saw anything similarly mind-blowingly annoying thing in Manjaro or in any other distro, to be honest. It started happening lately.
It was always like when I was done a right-click on the desktop, and selected the “Arrange Desktop Icons” it was always just happened; arranged the icons. Without any issues, and annoying pop-ups. I never-ever had any problem because of this NORMAL BEHAVIOUR.
Not so long time ago, this incredibly annoying giant window, that covers most of screen started to pop-up, which say:
“This will reorder all desktop items and place them to different screen positions”, and have to choose “Yes” or “No”.
I swear, this is the most annoying and inexplicable thing I every encountered in anything in the past decades while using computers. It just drives me crazy.
I using this icon-arranging functon a lot. I put everything that I working on or using on the desktop, and after I finished whatever I do with them, I moving things into a different location for storage or whatsoever. Because I like the icons when they are nicely arranged, I use this arranging a lot.
I can’t even discribe how annoying this thing is for me, and how much it hinders working with anything on my computer.
How I can disable it forever, so it will never come back, even after a system update?
