Is Cinnamon "start menu" executing each time I call it?

Postby AAAAH!ERMAGAWD!HELP! on Sat Feb 23, 2013 4:56 pm

I get the impression that the program that runs the main application menu in cinnamon actually executes each time it's opened, due to a second long delay. Can anyone confirm this?

I believe that is a known complaint. For some people, only the first call is with notable latency (it is that way for me), but some people report arbitrary wait times, independent of CPU load.

As far as I know there is no workaround yet that works reliably.

I have read around and found some people think it's theme related. That doesn't seem likely.

It's evident that the lag is not theme based based on a simple test. Minimizing, unminizing, and other menus open instantly while using the same effects and/or theme. I think that rules out the theme being the issue.

The other possibility is the read-speed of the hard drive when it executes the program. That means the work around would be to keep the menu app running in the background! That's probably really easy to do since it's a python app.
