I have not really checked, but it looks like I have not had any of those problems for quite some time. So maybe we can close this (and reopen if it reoccurs).

Is this still an issue? I seem to remember raster changed something with multiple keyboard layouts... can't find it atm, though.

testing a bit more, this script is very effective for stopping e for up to 5 seconds for me. First send a via notify-send which returns immediately, start date and then shellementary. Needs a bit higher load and a hardware accelerated video playing. Browsers like Firefox and Chromium are helpful as well. Restarts after 900 seconds which seems enough to purge the kernel cache of shellementary and its librarys.
For me I've found a relatively reliable testcase for this: shellementary. When I play a video, have a browser open and a system load roughly equal to the number of cpu cores, e hangs for up to 5 seconds when opening it the first time. So it seems either e or Xorg is waiting for the creation of this window, but shellementary sometimes takes too long (maybe on memory init?)

one constant error that shows up at the console tells to: eina_btlog << EOF EOF.
sometimes it tells the resource is null os nonexistent. dont have it right now. maybe will try to catch and upload here so you have more detailed information..
Me too, sometimes I have problems with window switcher. It does not show the list, but only the next window icon & name. But I don't need to restart the session, the next invoking the switcher is normally correct.
And UI does not hang for me with the last versions of E/EFL.
not really :-( some issues that i have noticed:
- ui hangs but mouse moves. sometimes after several minutes things get back to normal sometimes not.
- window switcher / selector is buggy. almost always with virtualbos running it cannot switch back to other windows and does not show windows on the list while switching with Ctrl+Tab. this is critical as i have to restart session and interrupt my work.

Thank you Peter! Enlightenment really rox! Just as my beloved FreeBSD! This is something really really new and the design is simply amazing.. really reminds me of the old good Unix or even Amiga times! :-)
cederom, you should begin with full uninstall E and EFL, port version of EFL is really outdated. Then you should download the last versions from enlightenment.org (or checkout from Enlightenment git) and build both EFL and E from sources.
I'm on git versions (dated some months ago) on FreeBSD 11.2. It's stable, I'm using it every day ~12hrs by day without freezes. I tested everything on FreeBSD 12 too without problems.
I did not (yet) tested the last released version of EFL.
You can ask for help in maillist if you have problems with build.
How can I track down the problem?

Support for elogind has been merged into master now. Please test and if everything is ok, then close this ticket
Dec 5 2018
I was hoping to merge the elogind support this week as the branch is completed ... but I've not gotten much feedback from testers :(

there have been a lot of changes between enlightenment 0.20 and 0.22 in calculating window width/height. could you check if this is still an issue with latest enlightenment and efl?

seemingly this has something to do with efreet, which is caching mime lookups?

@MAH69K I have updated the above branch (rebased on master), so it is now available for testing. You need to pass --enable-elogind as an option when building
There is also a Phab task already opened for this: https://phab.enlightenment.org/T7272
@MAH69K hello. Yes, current EFL and Enlightenment from git will not work without systemd. There is no support for ELogind yet ... but i have a branch which adds support for it. The branch is here: https://git.enlightenment.org/core/efl.git/log/?h=devs/devilhorns/elput. I need to rebase it against current git (which I will do today). When it is updated, I will post back here and if you would like to test the branch, please let me know your results.

yes something has to run as root in order bootstrap login.
IIRC, main e.cfg stores mime associations. Likely, the problem is that a generic mime type was set for Geany, causing Everything to be opened by it. Agree what that the interface could be improved.
at the end i had to resolve to remove geany, go back to enlightenments gui Default Applications and press apply once.

I've no idea what changed in the latest release of enlightenment but this is fixed now.
@raster indeed, this is what I've been looking for. Many thanks!

See T6779 - dup probably
Hello, I've upgraded today (on Ubuntu) to 0.22.2-0xenial0 and it appears my password isn't accepted on the lock screen (even if it works just fine when initially starting E session).
I was wondering if this might be related to this Merge Request?
