Thomas D. Dean-2
I see many syslog entries that appear to be from/about octave.  I do not
use octave gui.  However, there is a 'octave --no-gui' running in an xterm.

Is this from octave?  How do I stop it?  Will removing
/usr/local/share/applications/www.octave.org-octave.desktop
eliminate the log entries?

Please do not cross post your question [1].  This is very bad practice!
 If you receive an helpful answer, make sure that at all locations you
asked this question, that helpful answer can be found.  This way others
can benefit from it and the internet is saved from too many unanswered
problem threads.

Please be additionally more verbose about your system and Octave
installation method.  If you use Ubuntu and installed Octave via
gnome-software, a similar issue was reported [2] and comment #11 should
help.

HTH,
Kai

This does not seem to be [2].  I do not get high CPU usage.  I received
12 of these entries in the past 24 hours.  After thinking about this, I
think it may be some quirk in gnome-software.

I build Octave from HG sources.

My build is somewhat dated,
octave:5> [v, d] = version ()
v = 6.0.0
d = 2019-02-23

I don't think so, but, I will get up-to-date and see if that eliminates
the message.

Building now.  Then make check
