Mac desktop problem

I have a problem with Joplin-2.9.17 on a desktop Mac running Ventura 13.1. When I open Joplin the screen remains white and I cannot quit the program – have to use force quit. I have reinstalled Joplin several times but same issue each time.
I have been using Joplin for over a year on this machine without problem and also on my Mac laptop (also 13.1) and Android phone without problem. Could there be something conflicting on this particular Mac?

Do a sample in Activity Viewer, copy the result into a file and post the file here.

Thank you. I’m not sure what that is – the Mac has an Activity Monitor is that it? Or is Activity Viewer an app?


I made a blog post for my own app for Activity Viewer: How to check with Activity Viewer what any application is doing .

OK yes Activity Monitor – thank you the blog is helpful.

See attached files.

Miraculously the Joplin app has just opened properly. Maybe it was just needing a long time to open? Like 10 minutes?


I have a similar issue on Linux:
