Hi All: I’m just curious - I upgraded to 15.4 from 15.3 on my main computer (KDE / HP ZBook) and I notice now that all apps, etc., take noticeable time to start up - about a 5-7 second pause. I assume this is a system-level file integrity check feature, against, say, a checksum or something? (a security feature) Everything else seems to occur at the exact same speed as 15.3. Can someone give me a link to help me understand?
Leap 15.4, Mate desktop.
I had a similar issue few weeks ago;
Start Pluma, Caja took 5-7s
Long delay at end of boot; After top and bottom Mate panels and mouse cursor appear, background is black, it take 7s to get the (default green) background and 20s to see the desktop icons.
I had the opportunity to run 15.4 with the delay (boot and app) issue then to reinstall 15.4. The issue disappears at first but when I added some programs the issue came back.
Now after some updates I can’t reproduce the program starts but have still the issue at boot.
One of the programs I added is flatpak.
Not problem with my /dev/nvme0n1;

Moreover, on wife small box, with same OS and desktop, almost same installed programs: Same issue, long delay (5-7s) between click on the icon and program window opened for some programs. Same delay at the end of boot.
Cache is cache. It’s always safe to delete cache if the program that owns it isn’t running, and usually even if it is running. That cache is there primarily to speed program starts. Stale content there can cause inexplicable behavior. Cache actually needed gets regenerated automatically. It makes sense to periodically delete this cache, to ensure program updates haven’t made it stale.
