Re: Slower first time opening files?

System: Host: mrhm-Aspire-5750G Kernel: 3.16.0-38-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: Xfce 4.12.2 Distro: Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela By the way it's not just with opening files. It's the start menu too. I was hoping to find some general tips on making linux mint faster in general. :) Thanks in advance.

Slower first time opening files?

What is your advice? :)

Thanks in advance.
