Programms slow to start

Plasma-Wayland. Some programms take a lot of time to start, pe: Google Chrome (hte browser, yout tube, Softmaker (Textmaker, Planmaker).

I don’t understand why. Any suggestions?

Can you define “a lot of time” more specifically?

What are your system’s hardware specs, and what version of Tumbleweed are you using?

youre right sorry:

Textmaker (Softmaker): 11 seconds - normal rpm install
OnlyOffice: 7 seconds - Flatpak

@zerkovic Hi, so a optimus/hybrid setup. It could be some of the applications want to use the nvidia card (compute) or the setup is not quite right.

Can you show the output from;

inxi -GSaz

sure:

@zerkovic that didn’t show the gpu information?

Fire up YaST Bootloader and add nosimplefb=1 to the kernel boot options. Reboot and provide inxi -Gxxz information.

I’m sorry, the info came up very slow, and I was impatient. :expressionless:

Do you still want me to do the kernel boot option thing?

Yes as that should help

I am starting to suspect it has to do with a wrong setup - I don’t have the bumblebee setup.

But now I do. Maybe I made things worse … I don’t know.

@zerkovic Have a read of this thread and the links I have included;
https://forums.opensuse.org/t/flickering-and-graphic-problems-under-leap-15-6-kde/175809/6

Peruse these and decide what your wanting to do as as the other users your Nvidia gpu is not available…

Thank you Malcolm. I will have a look.

Now I have issues with my Nvidia card. I am trying to resolve them but still to no avail. I ve Bumblebee installed … I will let you know what’s happening.

@zerkovic I doubt you need bumblebee, you can configure the nvidia power options to power down the Nvidia GPU. It seems some hardware needs it to turn off a light, but I think it will still power down…
