My MacBook Pro with Mojave sticks at "loading photos" when screensaver is activated or previewed.

I have reset SMC and NVRAM but did not help.

I have also removed com.apple.screensaver*.plist from the Library and Cache folder, but did not work either.

The non-photo screen savers work fine (such as Flurry, Shell ...)

But there is no problem if I login with another account(such as Guest).

If I start into Safe Mode, there is no photo screen savers.

How do I solve this annoying problem?

Update

According to Buscar's suggestion, I am trying to reset permissions. But at step 7, I've got such an error message:

➜  ~ diskutil resetUserPermissions / `id -u` 
Ready to reset user permissions on disk1s1 Macintosh HD

Some user permissions have been reset
Error: -69841: Permissions reset on user home directory failed

Even so I have restarted the computer, but the problem remains.

Update 2 Now I have successfully reset user permisions after executing chflags -R nouchg ~ (found in the link from Buscar's). But the problem remains after restart the system:

    How many files are in the folder from which you are "loading photos"? If you have 20,000 or some such, the process can go glacial on you. – Wayfaring Stranger Oct 22 '18 at 18:42
  • As a last resort, you can backup important files, and then reinstall MacOS X using bootcamp. – Holyprogrammer Oct 23 '18 at 8:12
  • @WayfaringStranger I have only one photo in that folder. – chance Oct 23 '18 at 8:30
  • @KhushrajRathod Not an option. – chance Oct 23 '18 at 8:31
  • @chance Well, that's not it then. – Wayfaring Stranger Oct 23 '18 at 15:41

You did well by testing with another user account.

So the problem is in your user account.

Not sure where but that does not matter right now

Lets start with easy step and repair your permissions.

Follow the instructions from Apple.

Lets see if that works, if not we will move to next step.

The (com.apple.preference.desktopscreeneffect.remoteservice[1833]): Service exited due to SIGKILL | sent by com.apple.preference.desktopscre[1833] Sending the Kill (Sigkill) is not a good sign.

  • See my update please. – chance Oct 23 '18 at 8:30
