Hello and welcome,

To make sure your system is updated and the xfce4-settings package is not corrupted, run this command from terminal:
sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyu xfce4-settings

Reboot the system after that:
systemctl reboot

same, here is full output, I also see lightdm complains but maybe are not related

[radu@radu-lenovo ~]$ journalctl -p 3 -xb

See if doing this will help:

Will have to check on a XFCE install too. I might be able to do that later.
Also, i can’t tell what kernel you are using right now, but have you tried a different one?

Using this kernel 5.8.0-2. As I remember was same with prev version.

Noticed that right after boot I see only this:

[radu@radu-lenovo ~]$ journalctl -p 3 -xb

Aug 22 21:44:47 radu-lenovo lightdm[1153]: gkr-pam: unable to locate daemon control file

And only after about 1m I see also the line related to xfsettingsd.

In all this time the defined Applications Shortcuts in Keyboard in settings are not working.
So I assume is because is keep trying to start xfsettingsd and only after it starts or next process in chain activates shortcuts.

I guess I found the issue for that specific crash. Seems in startup in xfce4-settings I had some XFCE-Panel Workaround
which executed:

#/bin/sh
sleep 5
xfsettingsd --replace &
sleep 15
xfsettingsd --replace &
sleep 25
xfsettingsd --replace &

I don’t remember adding this.

After removing this I don’t see the crash.

I still see this though, but maybe I should not worry for now as I don’t see anything not working for now.

I still have some delay about 10-15 seconds until Application Shortcuts become active but will read more about that. As I assume it should not take so long right?

Thanks for the help.
