Mint 9 slow to load wallpaper [SOLVED]

Postby SeanBest on Wed May 19, 2010 1:04 am

Basically once I boot up it gets to the desktop wicked fast, I see the bottom gnome panel, but it takes an extra 10 - 15 seconds to load the wallpaper and desktop icons.

Any ideas/suggestion?


Thanks in advance!

Hi Sean,

You probably have to go into your BIOS and disable your floppy drive. I was experiencing the same exact problem, found this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/udisks/+bug/551712, and doing the aforementioned solved it for me. Now my desktop (wallpaper, icons, panel) loads almost instantly after logging in.

Hope this helps,
James

Yes default wallpaper and icons. I'll try disabling the floppy drive. I noticed it shows one in Computer even though I don't have a floppy drive installed. I'll try it.


Installed AWN and even it loads before the desktop lol.
