Software manager opens very slowly with no launch feedback

Post by woodsman »

LMDE MATE 64-bit, fully updated. The system is a single-core 3.46 MHz Celeron D with 2 GB RAM and SATA hard drives. The software manager takes anywhere from 15 to 30 seconds to open. The synaptic package manager opens immediately.

We prefer our customers use the software manager rather than synaptic but the slow opening is troublesome.

There is no launch feedback of any kind to inform users the software is opening. Not even a spinning mouse cursor.

Any ideas how to make this more palatable?

Thanks. :)

In earlier versions there was feedback supplied by a python script but this kept locking up and was removed in the latest versions of LMDE and Petra. For now you just need to make your customers aware of it.
