In system monitor I see some processes like evolution-calendar-factory or evolution-alarm-notify. What is it? It eat about 141 MB. I use GNOME 3. I search in gnome-tweak-tool auto run but it is empty. How can I disable auto run this program?

evolution-alarm-notify is a very essential part of Evolution, I'd suggest you leave it enabled. Actually, by default evolution-alarm-notify shouldn't be on the Startup Applications list. evolution-alarm-notify starts with Evolution and is responsible for displaying the reminders when an appointment is due.

evolution-calendar-factory It's part of evolution-data-server if you remove, Fedora can't allow to remove evolution-calendar-factory because this is a library shared by many programs and by Operational System.

If any try execute:

sudo dnf erase evolution-data-server
  • your system will be broken!

try to run a command in the terminal, you will see that the gnome-shell will be removed, and after next reboot, you can't login in system any more. :(

  • So, do not remove evolution-data-server.

There are a plenty open Bugs, Why evolution-calendar-factory or evolution-alarm-notify eat much CPU? or Hi CPU load? example 1148247 or 1293073 as many other or How to remove without success.

If you don't use evolution at all, I think your only solution is remove evolution.

sudo dnf erase evolution

Is the package gnome-shell meta package? As these programs run if they are not in .config/autostart/? I don't think that will break the system if you disable their autostart.
