On Start up get two unwanted programs

Hail Manjaroians:

Manjaro 20 is a fabulous OS. Thank you to all of the developers.

After I login, I get the “keyboard” and “select panel style” which I do not want.
Even after removing the keyboard from the lower panel, it returns and after
booting it appears again after the login.

I have found nothing on the Internet and both of these are not in the startup manager.

Does someone known how to disable these two programs so they do not appear after
logining in?

Frank you for any helf.

I have no idea what you’re talking about. We have absolutely no info on your system.

Oh man, here it is.

SYSTEM SETTINGS:
OS Manjaro Linux 20; Version 4.6.7
Lt Kernel 5.8.18-1

The first page one gets after login, I have a full keyboard on the screen and
a dialogue box with options to change the panel style.

Omano, don’t bother to help. Find someone else to pick on.

Why are you starting drama? You ask a question we can not reply to. I give you the proper thread to follow to provide good information, right? then you reply with random information we mostly had previously.

Oh man, here it is.

SYSTEM SETTINGS:
OS Manjaro Linux 20; Version 4.6.7
Lt Kernel 5.8.18-1

Then you try to call me out for “picking on you”? Are you serious?

You know what we’ll do? YOU find someone else to pick on :wink:

The screen after login or the login page? If you have onscreen keyboard to close ir press the keyboard button on the onscreen keyboard to toggle it off

Sawdoctor, not sure what “ir” means.

You know it was a typo …

Sorry typo. The onscreen keyboard has a keyboard button top right, press that and the keyboard won’t show up anymore

Thank you bog & sawdoctor. I have done dat before, however, I will
try it again.

Sawdoctor, it did not work. I clicked the keyboard off and also the
icon on the bottom of the task bar. On the reboot both came back.

I have two copies of Manjaro, with one on [/dev/sda1], which was the latest install
and the one having issues. I do not need to login. Manjaro was installed over MX-Linux 19.

The other is on [dev/sdb6], which was my first install and requires a login but
does not have this problem. I have to use the Advance option and then kernel 5.8.19-1 x64 [fallback initrame - on/d].

I guess the simple solution is just to use the orginal installation on [dev/sdb6].

If there is nothing obvious to start rogue in
/etc/xdg/autostart/
or in
~/.config/autostart/
~/.config/autostart-scripts/
~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets
is quite impossible to tell. From the descriptions seem to be something you added but forgot about?

Dogdan, I did find the one program in /xdg/autostart/ in root.

Not sure how to find those hidden files. I have spent three hours
trying to fix this issue. Tanks for your helf.

Just going to do another install. The time consumption is completely
insane.

Ding, ding and more dinging !!! :joy: :joy: :joy:

I decided to take another shot before doing another reinstall.

I found the “select panel style” on the Startup Manager and removed it.
Nextly, I found the keyboard program [Onboard], which I must have installed
and deleted it. Rebooted and Holey Cow, neither of them showed up on the Manjaro
startup page. The wicked witch of the east has been vanquished. :money_mouth_face: :money_mouth_face:

AND NO :woozy_face: system information was not needed, as it was completely irrelvant to solving this problem.

Sure… because Manjaro has only one desktop environment… Everybody knows that.
