    Yes I do, I just clicked it and closed it, and now I don't get the window again.

    But after reboot it is back, and continues after opening and closing desktop settings

    As Frogs Hair points out you would not normally see that window unless you had opened settings to adjust something.

    As a test, I ran a live session of Studio and was not affected by this.
    Okey, I'm starting to think it might have something to do with my graphics drivers maybe? How do I uninstall/reinstall them?

    I ticked the box for "proprietary" drivers during install

    I just noticed that the computer kind of freezes for a second just before the window opens, if that's helping at all

    I am doubtful as to whether it is a graphics card issue since you said it also happened during testing of the live medium.

    Since this is a fresh install and you have probably not changed anything yet let's try this (to reset the desktop settings) but again I am not sure this is the issue:

    Log out of the session and then at the login screen use CTRL+ALT+F1 to get to a TTY command line and type in your username and password (will not show on the screen but just type it and then Enter).

    Rename the config file for display with this command:

    Code:
    mv .config/xfce4 .config/xfce4backup
    When the command completes type this to restart a graphical session:

    Code:
    startx
    Hopefully this will resolve the issue.

    Unfortunately this didn't work either... But when I started X the icon for the menu was different, and I got a message about "light-locker" with some error.

    Any other ideas? I really appreciate your help

    Go back to the TTY terminal please and then do this:

    Code:
    mv .config/autostart/light-locker.desktop .config/autostart/light-locker.desktopbackup
    Code:
    startx
    This is certainly an unusual problem, one I have not seen before.

    It says "can't get status of '.config/autostart/light-locker.desktop': file or catalogue doesn't exist"

    Maybe I should get the vanilla Ubuntu instead and just install all the software manually, since Ubuntu vanilla worked...

    Re: Display popup spam

    Well, here is the thing, I looked at some of the software on Studio and I believe it is all available in the repositories so...it might be the best bet.

    I really do not understand why you had these problems with the display notification (perhaps some bug specific to your setup, who knows).

    If you need more help please feel free to ask.

    Thanks again for all help. I tried the other night to install the studio on top of Ubuntu, but it didn't seem to work. I used some "sudo apt install ubuntu-studio-installer", but when I tried to install stuff it just froze... Will try again and return to you if it's ok

    I believe you need to run this command:

    Code:
    sudo apt install ubuntustudio-controls ubuntustudio-installer
    and also enable the Backports PPA:

    Hi, I got it working! But when I tried to install xfce it all started happening again, so i guess it has to do with xfce and not the system itself... which is a shame since the computer would run a lot smoother with xfce, but oh well...

    Hmm, that is very interesting indeed.

    You might want to consider filing a bug report with the xfce developers about this.
    https://mail.xfce.org/mailman/listinfo/

    There are also alternatives that might suit you:
    https://alternativeto.net/software/xfce/?platform=linux

    Also look here:
    http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/5...p-environments

    Most are available in the repositories though for Studio I am not sure.
