Not much more to say that what's in the title. Every so often, not sure if all the time, the process gsd-print-notif starts using a full CPU core. If I kill the process it just comes back again. Obviously it has something to do with printing notifications, but I couldn't find exactly what it does and why this happens. I'm not seeing constant notifications popping up or anything.

Running Ubuntu 18.04.

    gsd-print-notifications is a plugin for the gnome-settings-daemon which keeps track of what happens in your session. I don't think you can do anything about this excess CPU usage, but you could file a bug on Launchpad or even contact the author at Github. – Jos Apr 3 at 16:04
