Ubuntu 18.10

I disabled the executible aspect of evolution-calendar-factory and evolution-alarm-notify as recommended in this post in order to disable the annoying notifications that are sent from the built-in calendar app. Now, unfortunately, I have a number of applications that will not run, including the system logs app and the calculator app. I have since reverted the change and all of the evolution processes are executible again, but the problem persists. Trying to avoid a fresh re-install so any help is very much appreciated!

EDIT:

Was able to access logs from terminal and this appears relevant. Any help decoding it?

  • I have since done a fresh re-install but after restoring my files from a backup (everything but the downloads folder) the problem PERSISTS! Actually, it has now gotten worse. I can no longer open the System Monitor to check to see if the other processes appear (however briefly) or for any other reason. Please help! – Ian J Feb 19 '19 at 0:39
