[SOLVED] How to control at-spi2-registryd and spi-bus-launcher?

Hello,

I just skimmed the output of htop and discovered two, to my impression, strange processes, of which I never heard before and whose importance to my system is dubious: at-spi2-registryd and at-spi-bus-launcher. See the output of ps aux:

freddy    1222  0.0  0.0 335408  7236 ?        Sl   11:16   0:00 /usr/lib/at-spi2-core/at-spi-bus-launcher
freddy    1229  0.0  0.0 123156  6176 ?        Sl   11:16   0:00 /usr/lib/at-spi2-core/at-spi2-registryd --use-gnome-session

These processes are launched by init and apparantly have something to do with accessiblity and gtk3 -- but this is pretty much all I could find out about them.

May I disable these processes? And if yes, how? I grep'd the output of systemctl but I couldn't find any clues on how to prevent them being launched on system startup. The fact that gtk3 requires the packages which provide the offending files prevents me from removing them from my system.

I neither use gnome (which may be indicated by the output above), nor do I use a display manager: I log in straight into X and start dwm.

As I said in a recent task, those are indeed launched as a result of running GTK3 apps, but if you have NO_AT_BRIDGE=1 set in your environment then it should prevent them for being started.

Thanks, this is solved.  However the default behaviour is quite irritating...

Unfortunately, even with NO_AT_BRIDGE=1 at-spi-bus-launcher is still launched as soon as I launch firefox.

@AnAkkk: True.  This is quite annoying. Did anyone already file a bug upstream? If not: where would one have to report this issue: at gtk or gnome development?

Edit: I've just recognized that both projects use the same bugtracker: http://bugs.gnome.org

Try add this in pacman.conf:

NoExtract = usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.a11y.*

Reinstall gtk3 and at-spi2-core:

sudo pacman -S gtk3 at-spi2-core

Logout and login back. I hope it works!
